Biography Giveaway!

Biography Giveaway!

There is one thing that no one has enough of: time. Because of that, I appreciate that you choose to read From Daniel’s Desk. I feel honored that you take time to read this site, and I want to show you my appreciation with a drawing for your choice of a biography. Choose between To the Golden Shore: The Life of Adoniram Judson or John G. Paton: Missionary to the New Hebrides.

To the Golden Shore: The Life of Adoniram Judson by Courtney Anderson is one of my favorite books. Because there are so many excellent books that I have never read, I rarely read a book more than once. I have read this biography twice, and I plan to read it again at some point. This book, the story of an American missionary to Burma in the early 19th century, has it all: love and hardship, danger and adventure, foreign cultures and imperial wars, and life and death decisions in the face of one of the most important tasks in the world: bringing the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the heathen.

John G. Paton: Missionary to the New Hebrides is the autobiograpy of John Paton, a Scottish missionary to a group of south sea islands. I couldn’t put this book down. Filled with danger and adventure, Paton risked everything to bring the Gospel to a group of cannibals. Previous missionary attempts met with clubbing and death within a few minutes, but Paton survives – miraculously – to see the triumph of the Gospel at the edge of the world. This book will stir your devotion to Jesus Christ!

The rules for this drawing are very simple. I will hold a drawing on March 31, and the winner will receive their choice of book!
