Book Review ~ To the Golden Shore

Standard

ref=dp_image_0.jpg

I just finished this biography on Adoniram Judson. To the Golden Shore is a fairly extensive look at Judson’s life written by Courtney Anderson. It took me a pretty long time to read it, I got a little bogged down in the middle. I think that lull happened especially because I’d already read a few biographies of the Judson ladies (My Heart in His Hands and Lives of the Three Mrs. Judsons), and so knew most of the story.

This is a good biography, though. I enjoyed reading it, and the author does a good job of weaving in letters and journals with his narrative, which I really like. One thing that I learned from this biography that I hadn’t in the others was Judson’s personal spiritual journey. I was encouraged and edified to read how God worked in this man’s heart and life to sanctify him and use him to reach a lost nation with the Gospel of Christ.

About Rachel

Most importantly, I am saved by grace through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. He is more than enough to satisfy my heart. In His abundant goodness, I am also delighted to be a wife and mama. I work at home and enjoy spending most of my time caring for my husband, 2 sons and new daughter. I also try to squeeze in some creativity, coffee, chocolate, and good books.
