In this biography, Sharon James uses the sources carefully to bring Ann (and Adoniram) Judson’s piety and hard work for the Lord to our attention. She does this not to venerate them, but to challenge us to deeper commitment and service to the Lord. If you’re going through trials or suffering, this book will remind you that trials are always for a purpose – rightly understood they glorify God...

But this woman, who was in the grave by the age of thirty-six and on the throne of England for...

“This is a masterful introduction to Francis Schaeffer. In one concise summary you get both the biographical outline as well as a comprehensive overview of the ideas that this remarkable man communicated and lived out. My hope is...
