The Life of Henry Martyn – ‘Now let me burn out for God’
Born in Cornwall, Henry Martyn came to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ while studying Mathematics at Cambridge University. A desire for missionary work took him to India. Living there he sojourned in Persia, and assisted in the task, he produced the NT and other parts of the Bible in Hindustani (Urdu) and Persian (Farsi), and supported translation work into Arabic.
A chaplain to soldiers, a preacher to beggars, a light to Hindus, a challenge to Catholics, a confessor before Muslims, and a wonder to Sufis, he died at the age of 31 – a servant of Christ.
