    A Journey of the Mind Beyond Mission Biography

    Courtney Anderson does a superb job of writing about a life that not many people know about or have even heard about, namely, Adoniram Judson. I have had the pleasure of reading this book while attending a seminary which is near his New England roots. The writing is so well done that I often would put the book down to take a sip of my latte, which had cooled rapidly due to my lengthy reading, and I would have to migrate back into the real world from the world that Courtney Anderson paints so vividly in her book. I had to read this book for a class on world missions, and it was easily the best reading that I had for the class. This is a biography about the first American foreign missionary. I went to the book with a pessimistic view of being forced to read this massive, and most likely boring biographical work. After getting past my pessimism, I read the book and it is amazing how the pages fly by. The author takes you into more than just a picture of the life of Adoniram Judson, she takes you on a journey into his world in early America and into the great trials and tribulations he endured for the faith and propagation of the gospel in Myanmar(then Burma). It provides a little history of New England, America, and Myanmar in the process. Instead of a dry biography, I got a book packed with history, missiology, theology, and adventure. That said, this book will give the reader a greater appreciation for foreign missions and more. I highly recommend it.

    An incredible missionary story

    I think this is a great book!! Courtney Anderson gave his subject full detail so that he comes to life. I like how he includes Adoniram's wives and their experiences too. My only complaint is that the author did not credit God enough. Definitely a buy for those interested in Adoniram Judson, missionary life, or history.
