During his short life he was beset by many difficulties. As a result, his biography has become a source of inspiration and encouragement to many Christians, including missionaries such as William Carey and Jim Elliot, and Brainerd’s cousin, the Second Great Awakening evangelist James Brainerd Taylor (1801–1829).Clyde Kilby summarised Brainerd’s influence as being based on the fact that, ‘in our timidity and our shoddy opportunism we are always stirred when a man appears on the horizon willing to stake his all on a conviction’.

From the eighteenth century, missionaries also found inspiration and encouragement from the biography.Gideon Hawley wrote in the midst of struggles: ‘I need, greatly need, something more than humane [human or natural] to support me. I read my Bible and Mr. Brainerd’s Life, the only books I brought with me, and from them have a little support’.Other missionaries who have asserted the influence of Jonathan Edwards’s biography of Brainerd on their lives include Henry Martyn, William Carey, Jim Elliot.

and Adoniram Judson.This little book is a compilation of more than sixty of the greatest quotes from the pen of David Brainerd, drawn from his book, “The Life and Diary of David Brainerd.”
