Ann Hasseltine, Sarah Boardman and Emily Chubbuck, each successively the wife of Adoniram Judson, the first American Baptist missionary to a distant foreign field, demonstrated in their lives the noblest of Christian virtue, and supreme dedication to the cause of Jesus Christ in spreading the gospel to what was then known as the Burman empire. No more fitting monument to the heroic labors of the Judsons can be erected than that of remembering their story.
Contains numerous illustrations.
“Years ago I picked up a beautifully bound old copy of the book The Lives of the Three Mrs. Judsons in a used bookstore. For some time it remained on my bookshelf as a prized but unread volume. I’ll never forget the day that my wife and I first opened and read from this book together. We were both immediately melted to teas, sensing that we have really known very little of sacrifice for the King. Read this book together as couples if possible, and expect your tears to flow and your devotion to increase.”

“Proverbs 31:10 reminds us of the truth that Adoniram Judson knew so well – an excellent wife is worth far more than rubies. My wife was gifted previously with a copy of the 1875 edition of this book and discovered it to be required reading for those interested in missions, history, adventure, marriage and heroes. We are pleased that Particular Baptist Press and Judson College are teaming to make this classic available again.”
— Jerry Cain, President, Judson College
