Review 1 for The Life and Diary of David Brainerd
Date:March 3, 2007
Wow, I think every Christian who wants depth in their walk should read this book. Both Jonathan Edwards and David Brainerd were men of incredibly deep examination of themselves and their state before God. Something western Christianity seems to have lost today. Read it and take the examples to heart so that you can truly attempt to prize Gods grace to sinners.

Review 2 for The Life and Diary of David Brainerd
Date:October 27, 2000
Excellent book about a missionary to the Indians in the 1750s before our country became the USA. It will challenge you to seek God more and allow Him to use you for His honor and glory. I am reading it for the third time and will continue to go back through it to gain more insight into God's way of working a Revival.
