Greatly challenging and lots of tears as I listened.
I had heard if Judson, but had no idea of the trials he went through or the amazing accomplishments God enabled him to achieve. What a challenge to Christ's command to deny self and take up our cross daily. Judson and his wives sacrificed everything for the gospel in a primitive, hostile environment.

Wonderful Book Enhanced by a Wonderful Reader
Though missions in the near and far East are somewhat of a study of mine, Adoniram Judson wasn't a name I was familiar with before purchasing this. The original authors of this fine, detailed biography did a marvelous job of communicating the triumphs and tragedies of Adoniram Judson et al. Truly a blessing they've given us. But since this is an audiobook review, I must say: The reader, Tim Gregory, should also be commended for bringing the true story of the precious missionary to life so well. He voice was pleasant throughout and the added touch of different accents he incorporated in relaying this marvelous biography made this one of the best audiobooks I've heard to date. Period. NEVER boring. It also made me anxious to purchase more YWAM biographies.

So, thank you YWAM, the Benges, and Tim Gregory!

Love it and learned a lot!
We really enjoyed it. My kids groaned every time someone died. Life back then was so much harder, and it was a great time to explain all the advances we have had as well as the differences in countries.
