Book Number: 
David Brainerd (1718-1747)
David Brainerd was a missionary to the Native Americans, from 1743-1747. His diary is an illustrious example of a Christian character, with a "...sincere and pure devotion to Christ". His love for God was seen in his unrelenting devotion to him. God has brought great fruit through his constant dependence on God, in his prayer life and the preaching of the Good News of Jesus Christ to the Native Americans. As a result he has seen remarkable results in hearts turning from sin to the gracious Savior. His missionary work brought him to an early death, at the age of 29. His diary is an illustrious example of a Christian character, with a "...sincere and pure devotion to Christ", worthy of following. Jonathan Edwards his friend mentor and editor of his diary, said, "Such an instance we have in the excellent person, whose life is published in the following pages", in which the reader will see "how he spent time from day to day, as to his external behavior; but also what passed in his own heart". This unabridged edition of Mr.Brainerd's journal includes an appendix "Containing his general remarks on the doctrines preached, and their extraordinary effects".

Condition of Used Books

  • As New is self-explanatory. It means that the book is in the state that it should have been in when it left the publisher.
  • Fine (F or FN) is As New but allowing for the normal effects of time on an unused book that has been protected. A fine book shows no damage.
  • Very Good (VG) describes a book that is worn but untorn. For many collectors this is the minimum acceptable condition for all but the rarest items.
  • Good (G) is (as an old bookselling joke has it) not very good. It is used to describes the condition of an average used worn book that is complete.
  • Fair shows wear and tear but all the text pages and illustrations or maps are present. It may lack endpapers, half-title, and even the title page.
  • Poor describes a book that has the complete text but is so damaged that it is only of interest to a buyer who seeks a reading copy. If the damage renders the text illegible then the book is not even poor.
  • Reprint is a newly-made photocopied reprint. The binding will vary depending on the size of the book. These reprints are made as a service to the body of Christ and the price is only to cover the cost of production.
