Ransacking our Baptist heritage to discover the encouraging ways that God has used some of His choice servants is a pursuit worthy of our time. In Baptist Mission Portraits, John Allen Moore, a former missionary himself, has done the homework for you – all you have to do is read it! He provides six interesting and inspiring biographical vignettes of men whose missionary shadows were cast a couple centuries ago and still stand tall — including well-known figures like William Carey and Adoniram Judson — but also names not as familiar to most: Luther Rice, Lott Cary, William Knibb, and John Everett Clough. The book is an easy, delightful read, and even offers fresh insights into the more well-known figures. Young people and adults will find this profitable.
