We draw attention to a new stock of this devotional classic. 'The Diary and Journal of David Brainerd' (1718-1747) is of much more than merely historical interest. The first internationally recognised biography to be printed in America, and the first full missionary biography ever to be published, it has had a profound impact on successive generations of Christians around the world. Few books have done so much to promote prayer and missionary action, and it is not without good reason that it has remained in print since the great New England pastor and theologian Jonathan Edwards first published it in 1749. 'Between 1742 and his death in 1747 David Brainerd took the Gospel to the North American Indians of New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Massachusetts.' [Publisher's description]. This is the 1902 two-volume edition in one volume, with Jonathan Edwards' reflections added.
