There are no closed nations when men and women freely choose to lay down their lives for the sake of the Gospel.

As America's first foreign missionary, Adoniram Judson thirsted to see the Good News brought to the shrouded land of Burma. His thirst would be quenched, but at an unimaginable price. Adoniram survived starvation, imprisonment, and torture both on land and at sea only to watch his family, coworkers, and friends succumb to death.

In spite of heartache and depression, Adoniram Judson translated the entire Bible into Burmese. To this day his work remains the only Burmese translation of the Bible available. Adoniram and his first wife Ann were the spark that spread the fire of the Gospel into Burma, and their evident love for the Burmese people is a compelling story of unswerving dedication and sacrifice.

  Good Children's Book and Introduction
HappyHomemaker of Oregon, 9/27/2011
This biography of Mr. Judson briefly covers his early life, then more detail about his years in Burma, his children and wives.
I thought it was a good introduction to his life and whet my appetite enough to seek more information about him and other pioneer missionaries like him.
