$10.00
David Brainerd's journal of his life and ministry amongst the North American Indians.

'In twenty-nine years David Brainerd (1718-1747) made a deeper and more lasting impression on the world in which he lived than most men make in a long lifetime.'

Born at Haddam, Connecticut, converted, expelled from Yale in his junior year, a student of divinity under Jedediah Mills, a missionary among the Indians of Eastern United States, sickened and died in the home of Jonathan Edwards whose daughter he loved; such appear to be the bare facts of his life.

But beneath these mere details is the thrilling account of a saintly evangelist whose brief ministrations were blessed by most remarkable conversions and gracious outpourings of the Holy Spirit in revival fires.' Richard Owen Roberts, An Annotated Bibliography of Revival Literature, page 57.

When John Wesley was anxious to preserve the zeal of his people, he put to his leaders this question: 'What can be done to revive the work of God where it is decayed?' answering it with the emphatic counsel, 'Let every preacher read carefully over the life of David Brainerd.'
