I had heard his wife who was also inspiring before she retired. I always wanted to read about how her husband had given his life trying to reach an untouched native people in Ecuador. Then I read the book about how Elizabeth lived with the same tribe who killed her husband. Two good books.

There was a lot of background story as to the struggles of being extremely devoted to the beliefs he held on to while as a young man in high school in college and not being easily swayed by those around him, which I thought sounded very interesting considering how most kids get involved with whatever they feel like it in that age group. He sounded very inspiring and dedicated to God. I loved the development you got to learn about the relationship he had with his wife. You were also able to see the long term dream coming into effect and how he didn't quickly jump to wherever he FELT God wanted him to be a missionary at, but waited on God and was patient. I think that's awesome. As for the story about reaching a tribe never reached before, that is so sincere that he worked so hard to reach his goal. Once he did reach that goal it seems a bit of a loss but in the end you see that the work of God through this man was able to spread widely without him truly even having to say anything to these people. Very good story, a little slow at times or repetitive. I love learning about people who work in the mission field though, so it was worth it.

This book was what I expected. It has a number of interesting stories that lend insight, often humorous, into the life of Jim Elliot. Excerpts from his journals are sprinkled throughout to tell us about his personal thoughts during the different times of his life.

The writing style didn't seem to flow very well and there were occasional sentences that just seemed a bit out of place.

The book was well formatted for the kindle reader.

Highly recommended!

Jim Elliot had a heart to reach the unreached for the Lord, and even though it cost him his life, many souls have been saved as a result of the tradegy. The Auca Indians that he wanted to save from extention and lead to the Lord are now serving the Lord.

Words seem so inadequate to express the impact this book made upon my life. Thank you God for a man who truly followed your will for his life and left a legacy for, not only his family, his friends the Waodoni, but for millions who have been reached for You.

I have heard about Jim and Elizabeth Elliot for a long time, and knew of their love for the Lord and His work. I enjoyed reading this book because it gave a little more insight into their lives and work. I was born in 1930 so I heard a lot about their dream to work with the Auca Indians in the jungle. It is well written and I hope that others will read and enjoy all that he faced in his ministry. They will read about the others who helped them so much and how they all got along with each other. It is just a good book.

Love to order from Amazon. This was a great book per my son. He saw the movie already. As christians, it's nice to have books where our children can learn about present day disciples of God. Missionary stories help to encourage us in our walk with the Lord. There are also many other great missionary stories in the 'Heroes of Faith' series.
