Adoniram Judson's life was first made famous by Courtney Anderson in the riveting classic biography To The Golden Shore: The Life of Adoniram Judson. 2012 is the bicentennial of Judson's departure from Salem, Massachusetts to bring the gospel to the far-east. Along the way, Judson made definitive contributions to biblical translation, missiology, and cultural engagement. His departure, widely considered to be the 'birth of American overseas missions', began a movement that spread across the globe and transformed societies from east to west. It is with this historical context in mind and its celebration in 2012 that Adoniram Judson: A Bicentennial Appreciation of the Pioneer American Missionary now appears. A book of essays written by historians, biblical scholars, theologians, missiologists, and church leaders, this volume honors the life and mission of Judson while retelling his enthralling story for a new generation.
