Publisher's Summary

Though he was orphaned at age 14, repeatedly struck with debilitating illnesses, and unfairly expelled from college, Brainerd allowed nothing to deter him from serving God wholeheartedly.He traveled thousands of miles by horseback across treacherous terrain to preach the gospel to remote Indians. Their benefit ultimately brought about his early death at the age of 29. This book not only offers a captivating story, but an uplifting buoy for those who are weary, distant, or discouraged.

Narration is perfect

I decided to give this book a try after hearing it mentioned by John Piper in his book, "Desiring God" and reading exerpts on John Piper's website.

I sampled the audio first before I made my purchase and after listening to Nick Cordileone's narration, I knew I had to hear to the whole thing. Nick Cordileone's vocal pitch, pacing and expression are perfect for this book. I can't imagine David Brainerd himself doing a better job. Also, the quality of the recording is extremely good, in spite of the occasional instance of repetition.

Listening to this book has changed my life. The passion young David Brainerd expressed in his journal writings of his love for God and his desire to live his life for the glory of God is profound and awe-inspiring. If the longing of your heart is to know God more deeply, you can't go wrong with this book.

Sincere and encouraging

This man's sincerity in his approach towards the work of God is clearly expressed in his journal. Holy Spirit revival ended up going wherever Brainerd set foot. This account of his life details his struggles, followed by his tremendous success.
