Though he was orphaned at age 14, repeatedly struck with debilitating illnesses, and unfairly expelled from college, Brainerd allowed nothing to deter him from serving God wholeheartedly.

He traveled thousands of miles by horseback across treacherous terrain to preach the gospel to remote Indians. Their benefit ultimately brought about his early death at the age of 29. This book not only offers a captivating story, but an uplifting buoy for those who are weary, distant, or discouraged. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

    " Remarkable story and all in all really crazy. I enjoyed it very much. This is one of those historical works that you must read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Devin | 1/15/2014

    " Not gripping like a novel. It's a spectacle of Christ-devotion. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lobug | 1/11/2014

    " This was a great book that made me do a lot of thinking, but it was somewhat difficult to read as it was fairly repetitive. I suppose that is to be expected as it is a diary, and much of life is repetitive. It was a great look into the heart of a godly man, and very much worth reading through. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 James | 1/9/2014

    " An excellant read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Judy | 1/9/2014

    " Powerful book about a man consumed with God and his disciplines. I'm still plowing through it. It is one I have to put down and pick up in a day or week before continuing on. I have wanted to read this for a long time and I am trying to learn from this giant's life. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Gary B | 12/30/2013

    " I got around a third of the way through this book. Some of it was helpful, but I am finding it repetitive. It seems to be a book for the right season - and I'm not in that season as yet. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeremy | 12/27/2013

    " If you are starting to get cocky about your walk with Christ and/or your commitment level, just crack this one open. It's incredibly dry at points, but worth trudging through. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Tiffany Flory | 12/14/2013

    " the most depressing book i have ever read. didn't even get 1/4 of the way through it before i couldn't take anymore. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Margie | 11/28/2013

    " It started out slow for me, but picked up as he deepened in this walk with God. Reading the diary of this man who died at 29 is life changing. He expressed such brokenness and humility toward God. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Wildfire Revival | 9/14/2013

    " Read three times and each time I can only get through a few pages at a time - extremely deep and inspiring of HIS PASSION FOR MINISTRY TO NATIVE AMERICAN'S. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Sarah | 2/13/2013

    " The most depressing book I've ever read! It made me wonder if he would have accomplished so much more for God (and maybe lived longer) if he had stopped focusing on himself. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shannon | 8/17/2012

    " I almost gave this book 5 stars. It's good as long as you keep in mind the fact that it's a real life and a real diary. You'll find a devotion to Jesus Christ rarely found in men of today. It'll challenge you as long as you're willing to believe that David Brainard was genuine. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brian Townsend | 6/11/2012

    " Amazing man. Amazing life. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Zachariah | 5/27/2012

    " His awareness of his own sin and depravity is very heavy and eye opening! But as it's a diary it can be a tedious and monotonous read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Randy | 8/11/2011

    " Good study of this Godly man's life and works among Indians in early American history. It is a melancholy saga of a solitude man. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Virgil | 3/1/2011

    " I have read this book twice. Very good. You see his human weakness mixed in with His devotion to Christ, and His devotion to prayer mixed in and answered with many souls being swept into the kingdom. A must read for anyone looking to be a minister, evangelist, or missionary. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Beka P | 4/27/2010

    " When I read about these great men of God, it makes me want to have a relationship as close to God as they did. "
