List price: $10.95
This is the best-selling account of the martyrdom of Jim Elliot and four other missionaries at the hands of the Auca Indians in Ecuador. Elisabeth Elliot makes full use of Jim's rich and revealing diaries to expose the roots of what makes a person at the threshold of life commit his very being to a God who he felt might call him to an unexpected death at any time. Elisabeth Elliot gives us the vivid details of a life "hid with Christ in God" and creates a portrait of a figure that continues to inspire many. SC, 256 pages.
