With the advent of 2012 comes recognition of the bicentennial of Judson’s departure and official start of the American missionary enterprise. This volume seeks to honor the life and mission of Judson while retelling his story for a new generation. With the occasion of the 200-year anniversary of Judson’s departure as a fitting context for such a presentation, the his- torians, theologians, and missiologists writing here under the guidance of editor Jason G. Duesing have endeavored not only to serve as Judson’s biographers of past events, but also as his interpreters of what they hope will take place in the present and future.
Contributors include Paige Patterson, Michael A. G. Haykin, Robert Caldwell, Nathan A. Finn, Candi Finch, Keith E. Eitel, Gregory A. Wills, and Daniel L. Akin.

Adoniram Judson: A Bicentennial Appreciation of the Pioneer American Missionary based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
I was hoping for a full life story of Adoniram. Instead I got about 60 pages of 230 about his life and the rest was about his "Missionalogical and Theological" impact. It read more as a graduate thesis than a biography.
