David Brainerd, Part 1
October 5, 2007
Our friends at Banner of Truth have published an attractive new edition of a genuine classic: The Diary & Journal of David Brainerd. The book will be of special interest to anyone with a vested interested in missions and evangelism. In other words, it ought to be of interest to every serious Christian. A man of intense devotion to Jesus Christ, with a passion for reaching Native Americans (Indians, he called them) with the gospel, Brainerd died when he was still in his twenties. In coming weeks I hope to share a few excerpts from his writings, which have far outlived his all-too-brief (as it seems to us) ministry.
