The Life of Brainerd is a compilation by Jonathan Edwards (1703-1758) of the diary and journal of the eighteenth century missionary to the North American Indians, David Brainerd (1718-1747). It is a series of highly introspective, often depressing, and always provocative entries by an man orphaned in his youth, suffering both from the physical effects of tuberculosis as well as the misguided remedies of 18th century medicine, but who nevertheless perseveres in his task of bringing the Gospel to indigenous peoples and sees some 80 converted.
