Drawing on letters and church records, Courtney Anderson paints a poignant portrait of Judson’s early life in dealing with the conflict between his desire for material success and the inner call to serve God. For Adoniram Judson “the golden shore” brought bitter hardships, imprisonment, and family tragedy. Yet, he never wavered in his commitment to win people to faith in Christ and to translate the Bible into the Burmese language.
This special edition recognized the 175th anniversary of the Judsons sailing on their historic voyage and celebrates the early years of Baptist mission overseas. Photographs and reproductions of Burmese woodcuts are used in telling Judson’s story.
“In my lifetime I have read quite a number of biographies, including a number of religious biographies. This one I rank near the top in my biographical reading experience. The interest is compelling by virtue of Adoniram Judson’s historic place in American foreign missionary endeavor and by the drama of his life.” —Raymond Banner
“The book is very provocative, in the sense of drawing your emotions into the adventures of frontier missions. It makes for great material to fuel the fires of your heart, for those on the field and for those supporting missionaries.” —Daniel Elmore
“This book is mandatory reading for those who are interested in the life of Judson or the history of Christian missions.” —A reader
"The detail of Judson’s life as found in To the Golden Shore is breathtaking. His testimony of salvation is given in full detail—it alone is worth purchasing the book...An excellently written and researched biography. If you are a Christian, I commend this book to you. If you are thinking about going on the mission field, then this book becomes a must read." —ChristianBookNotes.com. Read the entire review here.
"What an awesome story of faith! I had never heard of Adoniram Judson...much less his missions attempts in Burma. I recommend every person that God has called to be a missionary read this book before setting one foot on any soil to preach the Gospel. I am a Baptist preacher and I doubt I could have ever come through all the trials and tribulations like Dr. Judson did." —David Schmutzler
"This book has been a source of strength, inspiration and renewed vigor in my prayer life."—Paula R Gravatt, Leesburg, VA
