A Holy Passion~A Novel of David Brainerd and Jerusha Edwards Giveaway!

Recently, my sister published her novel detailing the lives of missionary David Brainerd and of Jerusha Edward's, theologian Jonathan Edward's daughter. Jerusha cared for Brainerd in the Edward's home near the end of his life and it is believed that they shared a romantic attachment. Alicia delves into the lives of both of these historical figures in her book; you can read my post about it HERE

This week, I am giving away two copies of this precious, beautiful book. I believe that it will draw your heart closer to Christ and I pray that it will be a blessing to those who read it. You may use the Rafflecopter form at the bottom of this post to enter the giveaway and the two winners will be announced next week.  Entrants must live in the continental United States for shipping reasons! :-)

Description from the back of the book:

“My heart begins its slow crescendo at the news. Mr. Brainerd – my Mr. Brainerd – has come at last.”

After a few scant years of solitary missionary work among the American Indians on the colonial frontier, David Brainerd has been forced off the field once more by his terminal illness. A man who has sacrificed every earthly comfort for the sake of Christ, he takes refuge in the home of Reverend Jonathan Edwards, eminent Great Awakening theologian and pastor… and the father of a young woman named Jerusha. 
Unbeknownst to David, Jerusha Edwards has nurtured an affection for him since she met him long ago. Their renewed acquaintanceship challenges Jerusha to understand the meaning of selfless, Calvary love. Yet does such love demand too great a sacrifice for her to make?

Told with an emphasis on the known facts of Jerusha and David’s relationship as well as his missionary undertakings, this novel carefully embellishes the historical record, weaving a bittersweet tale of romantic, holy devotion.
