The Journals of Jim Elliot
By Jim Elliot / Baker
Jim Elliot was part of a team of young missionaries murdered in Ecuador in 1956 by the Auca Indians to whom they were witnessing. 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. This book is a wonderful account of 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 book will intrigue fans of Jim and Elisabeth Elliot, readers interested in missions, and young people struggling to find God’s plan for their lives.

INCREDIBLE TOOL FOR OUR TIMES
The web/digital revolution is changing how we think and communicate, in ways we are only starting to see. Its impact will be as far-reaching as the invention of the printing press. That changed the world for ever, enabling the Reformation and Renaissance, plus effective evangelism and discipleship.
