Book Review

My Heart in His Hands - by James, Sharon, L.

Evangelical Press, 1999. 204 pp.
Book review by Donna Drion, wife of TMS student Tom Drion.

If you want to know more about the sovereignty of God, be challenged by bold faith, see the preciousness of the Word of God in times of utter hopelessness and be convicted by steadfast love, then you must read this book!

My Heart in His Hands is a real treasure. Uplifting, tear jerking, and compelling; it is the story of Ann Judson, the wife of Adoniram Judson the first American Baptist missionary to Burma, and is a must read for any ministry wife who wants to grow in personal godliness by being inspired by a faithful sister who went before us. We all have to learn to give up our husbands to the work the Lord has called him into, and have to be willing to be his helper in whatever circumstances the Lord will choose.

This wonderful story will remind you again of the ultimate aim of all that we do - the glory of God. It will encourage you to take God at His Word and to plead with faith to our Father His promise “Call upon me in the day of trouble and I will hear, and thou shalt glorify me.”
