Be challenged to walk more closely with God, to pray more for the gospel’s advance, to long for true revival, to endure hardships for Christ’s sake, and to expect God’s blessing on those who are weak.
David Brainerd lived twenty-nine short years. Yet his life has affected millions of Christians, including John Wesley, William Carey, Charles Spurgeon, and Jim Elliot. What was so remarkable about the man? This devotional provides seven accessible, practical answers, including his view of conversion, his oft-cited devotional habits, his deep love for the Lord’s Day, and his endurance of almost constant suffering. Each chapter makes careful, practical, and biblical applications to the lives of readers today, portraying Brainerd as an imperfect but helpful example of Christian piety. Its format works well for personal and small-group use, and it can be used in conjunction with the documentary DVD.
