Jim Elliot led a group of young missionaries into Ecuador in 1956 in
order to share the good news of Jesus Christ with the Auca Indians. Mr. Elliot and his team were murdered by the
hands of those they had brought the Gospel to.
At the age of 29, he left behind a young widow, a baby daughter, and
volumes of personal journals written over many years. In 1978, Revell published
the complete and unabridged journals, edited by his widow, Elisabeth, and the
journals have stayed in print ever since. And it’s no wonder--Jim Elliot was an
intelligent thinker and strong writer in these personal, yet universal, musings
about faith, work, and love. An intriguing collection of writings which bring
to account the life of a man who yearns to know God’s plan for his life,
details his fascinating missions work, and loves Elisabeth--first as a single
man, then as a happily married one. This
work will inspire fans of Jim and Elisabeth Elliot, readers interested in
missions, and young people struggling to find God’s plan for their lives.
