Reading “The Life and Diary of David Brainerd”

Fall is upon us.  (I actually saw 4-5 inches of snow Saturday while visiting my wife’s family in Nebraska.)  With fall and the changing of leaves, my mind wanders to the woods of New England.  Autumn has to be the perfect time for wearing a sweater and curling up with the Puritans.  This year, I hope to work my way through two Puritan classics.  First up will be The Life and Diary of David Brainerd edited by Jonathan Edwards.  For those who have never heard of Brainerd, I refer you to the very accessible biographical work done by John Piper on Brainerd for introduction.

For those who have gone before me in the reading of this book, I’d love to hear your thoughts and comments!
