Product Details

The great missionary biographies are the records of incompleted lives. May it not be that the influence exerted by the record is the completion of the work that seemed to be prematurely laid down? David Brainerd died at the age of thirty, Henry Martyn at thirty-two, Keith Falconer at thirty-one, Mackay at forty one. There are biographies of older men-Livingstone, Judson, Patteson, French-which have powerfully affected men, but a disproportionate number of the effective books have dealt with short lives.
