Ann Judson: A Missionary Life for Burma
Previously published as 'My Heart in His Hands', this book is fully revised and updated and is the best modern biography of Ann Judson available. If you only read one biography this year, read Ann Judson: a missionary life for Burma.
If you’re going through trials or suffering you need to read this book and find out that trials are always for a purpose — rightly understood they glorify God and build us up in the faith. Sharon James uses the sources carefully to bring Ann (and Adoniram) Judson’s piety and hard work for the Lord to our attention, not to venerate them but to challenge us to deeper commitment and service to the Lord.
For those who love rich and instructive historical narrative, deep and sacrificial Christian commitment, genuine and heart-felt devotion to Christ, and bold and daring service for the sake of the spread of the gospel — one can hardly find a story more amazing than one will read in Sharon James’s excellent depiction of the life and times of Ann Judson, devoted wife to Adoniram Judson. . . May God be pleased to use this wonderful book to stir up the devotion and commitment of his people, to the praise of Christ and the ongoing spread of the message of his cross.
