In January of 1956, the world recoiled in shock with the news. Five American missionaries had been speared to death in the Ecuadorian jungles by Auca Indians-reportedly the most savage tribe on earth. Years later, it became clear that what had seemed to be the tragic ending of those missionaries' dreams was only the first chapter of one of the most breathtaking missionary stories of the twentieth century. "The Savage, My Kinsman" tells the story, in text and pictures, of Elisabeth Elliot's venture into Auca territory three years after the death of her husbnad, Jim Elliot. Elisabeth and her daughter Valerie, then three years old, returned to the jungle along with Rachel Saint, the sister of one of the other slain men. The linguistic work of these women brought Christ's message of slavation to the tribe that thad killed their loved ones

A path through suffering by Elisabeth Elliot( Book )

14 editions published between 1990 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 419 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Suffering is not for nothing. Must we stumble through sorrow and tragedy without understanding, or is there a lighted way -- a path -- through suffering? Elisabeth Elliot plots the treacherous passage through pain, grief, and loss, a journey most of us will make many times in our life. Through it all, she says, there is only one reliable path, and if you walk it, you will see the transformation of all your losses, heartbreaks, and tragedies into something strong and purposeful. In this powerfully moving book, Elisabeth Elliot does not hesitate to ask hard questions, to examine tenderly the hurts we suffer, and to explore boldly the nature of a God whose sovereign care for us is so intimate and perfect that he confounds our finite understanding. A Path Through Suffering is a book for anyone searching for faith, comfort, and assurance. It is an honest book about the way our merciful God draws us close to himself and expands our capacity for surrender and obedience in order that we might finally and fully share in his resurrection glory. - Back cover
Let me be a woman : notes on womanhood for Valerie by Elisabeth Elliot( Book )

7 editions published between 1976 and 2004 in English and held by 383 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We are called to be women. The fact that I am a woman does not make me a different kind of Christian, but the fact that I am a Christian does make me a different kind of woman. For I have accepted God's idea of me, and my whole life is an offering back to him of all that I am and all that he wants me to be. In these days of conflicting demands and cultural pressures, what kind of woman do you wish to be? How should you respond? What should you think? Elisabeth Elliot is one of Christendom's most able and articulate writers. In this profound and moving book she presents her unique perspective. Now married a third time after losing two husbands through death, she offers golden insights which apply to the single, the married, and the widowed. These notes on womanhood, written to her daughter Valerie a few weeks before Val's marriage, are a gift of lasting worth for all Christian women. - Back cover
