At 21, he began an adventure that would require the ultimate sacrifice.
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.
