Previously published as My Heart in His Hands, this book is fully revised and updated and is the best modern biography of Ann Judson available. If you only read one biography this year, read Ann Judson: a missionary life for Burma. If you’re going through trials or suffering you need to read this book and find out that trials are always for a purpose — rightly understood they glorify God and build us up in the faith. Sharon James uses the sources carefully to bring Ann (and Adoniram) Judson’s piety and hard work for the Lord to our attention, not to venerate them but to challenge us to deeper commitment and service to the Lord.
I read this book under its former title “My Heart in His Hands”. Sharon James has extended the work for this reprint. She writes engagingly and her ability to blend original correspondence with the biographical narrative is exceptional. The story is simply captivating and moving. The full measure of devotion Ann Judson showed to her family and her Saviour is compelling and challenging. This one of the very best Christian biographies I’ve read; but I am only 72.
