Dennis, Lecturer on Missions, Princeton, and Member of the American Presbyterian Mission, Beirut, Syria.

Informative.

Anderson’s History of Missions

Informative and heartwarming, Rufus Anderson’s honest historical account of The Missions of The American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions to the Oriental Churches is a valuable resource. The first missionaries sent were Pliny Fisk and Levi Parsons, on September 23, 1818, to Palestine. Eight Missions were maintained viz., Palestinian, Syrian, Greek, Armenian, Nestorian, Assyrian and those to the Jews and Mohammedans. This candid record, listing the struggles and accomplishments of the missionaries and their learning experiences is humbling and eye-opening!

Evangelism in Missions

New Evangelism and Other Writings by Henry Drummond

Gifted Scottish evangelist, author and lecturer in science, Henry Drummond in New Evangelism and Other Writings proposed that if the Gospel be the power of God unto salvation, men must be influenced by the preaching of it. If not, it really means that the Gospel, as presented to them, has ceased to be a gospel, being neither good nor new. A standard is something that stands. Theology is a thing that moves! There must be progress in everything! He made a spiritual diagnosis, introduced fresh methods and applications and dealt effectively with the issue of foreign missions and the contribution of science to Christianity. Refreshing!

"Thorough and well researched!" — Reviewer

Communion with God by Adolph Saphir

The thorough treatment of the subject throughout this short book, The Hidden Life by Adolph Saphir is an orderly, extended meditation on James 4:8"Draw Near to God and He Will Draw Near to You." This Hungarian-born Jew turned Presbyterian minister believes this is ultimately the heart of the New Testament message, that through Christ the way is made to draw near to God, and that He will draw near to us. A beautiful expression of elementary thoughts on the Christian’s private life with God, and how to experience the reality of revelation and prayer. Highly recommended.

"A theological and practical meditation on how to have communion with the Trinity in everyday life." — Fred Sanders

"A great blessing!" — Customer (

Missionary Tours by Augustus Hopkins Strong

In his indisputably convincing narrative of his visits to the mission stations around the world, Augustus Hopkins Strong, one of the most influential theologians, church leaders and authors in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, paints vivid word pictures of the culture and needs of the people he encountered. India, China, Japan and Burma and wherever else he went, he never failed to be deeply moved by the utter lostness of men and the great burden for winning them for God. Fascinating and motivating!

"Exciting and heart- warming!" — A reviewer

The Life and Mission of George Muller

1. The Life of Trust by George Mueller
2. The Preaching Tours and Missionary Labours of George Muller

Stunning! George Mueller’s faith shines forth so strongly as to blind you! The cheap-and-easy watered-down faith that passes for much of Christianity today stands in stark contrast to the robust, vibrant, faith-in-action of this giant of a spiritual man, whom thousands of orphans rise up to call blessed. Mueller rams home the truth that we serve a Living God not dead theology! "Learn to pray in faith and receive answers" was his creed, and it was simply his unwavering trust and child-like dependence on God the Father that led him to set up innumerable orphanages! Awesome!

"Good book!" — ddfar

God’s Mighty Man of Prayer

The Autobiography of J. Hudson Taylor

Daring to believe in the faithfulness of God no matter what the test, J.Hudson Taylor lived dangerously but succeeded enormously! It was because he acted on this belief that he became a man who saw revival. His favorite method of overcoming any impediment was to "learn to move man, through God, by prayer alone!" The mountains he moved by faith and prayer are almost unbelievable. Every incident and occurrence in his life spoke loud and clear of his unfathomable love for God and China! China will never be the same. Thrilling!

Diary of a Faithful Servant

The Diary of David Brainerd

Never intended for publication, this diary of David Brainerd bares the man’s soul and his hunger to win the lost at any cost. Recognizing his physical and spiritual frailties as but the backdrop to plainly display the tremendous power of God, he records his longing for holiness, his joy in fasting and prayer and the constant belief that God saved us not for what we can do for Him, but solely for His good pleasure. This diary is a challenge at every level, certainly not for the faint of heart! His life of utter abandon to God’s will, his unmatched fervor and his depth of spiritual wisdom make his brief life of 29 years more amazing than ever.

"Challenging read in so many ways!" — Philip Fung

"This book will change your life! — Booklover

"Taking me to my knees!" —Michael R. Cooper

Adoniram Judson: A Missionary Biography
by Edward Judson

A touching tribute of a son to his father’s life, Edward Judson’s book stands testimony to the faithfulness of God to His faithful servant. With most of the original letters and memoirs lost in a fire, this account of Judson’s life becomes even more precious. Arriving via Calcutta, Judson makes Burma his home, suffers the loss of children and his first and then second wife, each equally nobly sharing his burden. Besides physical constraints he tackled Brahminism and Buddhism, translated the whole Bible into Burmese, compiled a Burmese dictionary and set up 63 churches under 163 missionaries, native pastors and assistants. Enduring ill health, a fire which destroyed their home and endless opposition from the emperor, he died on a voyage and was buried at sea. His life will never cease to nerve missionary endeavor.

"Words that create a picture on the canvas of your mind." ¨ — K. Christmon

Life in the Middle East

A Journal of Residence at Baghdad by Anthony Norris Groves

Kindling the imagination and transporting one to an era gone by, Anthony Norris Groves recounts his life in Baghdad which rivals fiction! Totally casting himself upon the lord, Groves recognized that preaching the word was an ordinance of God. Braving hostility, hardships and heartbreak at the deaths due to plague, the heart-felt peace he experienced, surpasses all understanding! Scenes flash with the mystique of the desert and the hardness its people, and ultimately with joy when the glorious truth of the gospel permanently alters their lives. Beautiful.

"Very Very Interesting!" — A. Sepani
