Tell others about Jesus like David Brainerd did:

 Though we are not all called to be Missionaries, we are all called by God to share our faith (witness) with those who are not Christians.  Some Bible verses that you will find helpful for doing this, and that you may want to commit to memory are found on other pages on our  web site (see: Memory Verses; 2nd Set: Salvation!, Plan of Salvation, and Statement of Faith). _________________

Author: David Brainerd

Edited by Jonathan Edwards

A remarkable story of genuine piety, in heart and in practice.

The autobiographical account of a courageous preacher who daily "walked with God," but who also mourned when the light of God's countenance was dimmed or absent.

...gospel to American Indians.

Taken from Jonathan Edwards' edited versions of David Brainerd's Diary and Journal, this compilation makes available a "fairly complete" record of the self-denying life and strenuous labors of David Brainerd as he presented the gospel to American Indians.  It was originally published as one of the titles in the Wycliffe series of Christian Classics.

Preceding the Brainerd accounts is a brief but revealing biographical sketch of Jonathan Edwards by Philip E. Howard, Jr.

...selfless life of prayer and devotion...

David Brainerd (1718-1747) was an early American missionary whose selfless life of prayer and devotion continues to inspire Christians today.  Jonathan Edwards (1703-1758) was an American Puritan theologian, preacher, and prolific author.  Philip E. Howard, Jr. was for nearly thirty-three years associated with the Sunday School Times. ______________________________
