The Lives of David Brainerd

John A. Grigg (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

Although Brainerd had committed to working among the Indians in late 1742, he struggled for the next eighteen months with the consequences of this decision. This chapter describes Brainerd's work with the Indians at Kaunaumeek, New York, and at the Forks of the Delaware in Pennsylvania. It explores the reasons for Brainerd's decision to turn down regular pastorates in order to continue with mission work as well as the reasons for his continued uncertainty with his effectiveness as an Indian missionary.
