Very few missionaries in the history of the world had to endure and persevered through such hardship and blocks for the work they were called to than the Judson's! This is a riveting read that captures the depth of the mix of suffering and joy felt by this great woman of God. The strongest part of reading this work is all of the actual journal entries mixed in with narrative from the author. The moments of anguish with lost love ones and "failed" ministry are heart-wrenching, yet encouraging with their responses throughout. This is a must read for believers, especially those that are on the mission field or have the calling to do so. Read this in tandem with To the Golden Shore by Courtney Anderson.
I read this book under its former title “My Heart in His Hands”. Sharon James has extended the work for this reprint. She writes engagingly and her ability to blend original correspondence with the biographical narrative is exceptional. The story is simply captivating and moving. The full measure of devotion Ann Judson showed to her family and her Saviour is compelling and challenging. This one of the very best Christian biographies I’ve read; but I am only 72.
