Review

Elisabeth Elliot is a woman set apart by the Spirit of God. Her voice has been a trusted source of godly wisdom and encouragement in our home for more than thirty years."

From the Publisher

Because God’s all-encompassing love has become the theme of her long life, Elisabeth Elliot chose to open her daily thirteen-year radio program, Gateway to Joy, with her signature line, "underneath are the everlasting arms." Now she has gathered into this new book many of her reflections, previously published only in The Elisabeth Elliot Newsletter. The author’s thoughtful mini-essays are vintage Elisabeth Elliot, conveying the reader from her school years through expeditions to exotic foreign destinations, returning to her comfortable home in Massachusetts. Her perennial themes of contentment, joy in the midst of sorrow, and abiding daily faith reveal the heart of God the Father and a life well-lived. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I normally don't write reviews until I've completed the book. In this case, however, I'm so excited to recommend this book that I can't wait! In the Introduction, Elisabeth Elliot explains this book is a compilation of short articles that have appeared in her newsletter over the past 10 years or so.
I've only read 7 of the 2-4 page devotionals, but each one was excellent, and 2 of those have been life-changing. God has used them to speak to me right where I'm at, in such a powerful way! I can't wait to read the rest of the book, but I'm savoring it, reading only a couple chapters a day, so it's not over too quickly!
The chapters that mean so much to me are "Shoes of Iron" and "The Future is Not Our Province". I spent two days of my journaling/Bible study/prayer time journaling about "Shoes of Iron" and looking up related writings in other devotionals, etc. The more I read and wrote, the more I learned. I expect "The Future Is Not Our Province" to similarly inspire me when I sit down with pen and paper. These two devotionals alone would be worth the price of the book! At the end of each devotional, Elisabeth includes a quote from a Christian writer, mostly from long ago. It's fascinating to see how the writings of someone who lived in the 1600's relate so closely to how God is working in my life today. These quotes and prayers are a good jumping-off-point to learning about Christian classics.
This book would make an excellent gift for either the serious student or a busy person who has limited knowledge and/or time to meet with God. The chapters are meaty without being difficult to understand.
If you haven't read Elisabeth's book "Through Gates of Splendor", you should do so!

This book is an incredible resource for encouragement, wisdom, hope, and insight. My mother, a godly woman who has been my mentor through the years, gave it to me on my 40th birthday. She said that Elisabeth Elliot writes the deep truths she has learned over the years but in a way that she never could. If you want to be mentored by someone with a sweet spirit of grace and who has been through trials and triumphs than get this book. You will learn and be blessed in a way that few books can match. You'll want to buy one for all of your friends after you read it!

Few writers communicate the reality of a life lived in Christ with as much depth and eloquence as Elisabeth Elliot. Her communication of The Magnificence in the ordinary, everyday things we all encounter and often pass over as mundane trivialities, is not only enlightening, but faith building as well. Light reading with extreme depth, quite a feat for any author, but one easily accomplished by Elliot. She is, truly, one of the great Christian writers of our time.

I've been so blessed by the sweet encouragements of this book. I received it right after my Dad died and it has been a comfort to me. I would highly recommend it.

I used this book as a devotional - good three page insights, many of which gave insight to her time on the mission field - this is a woman who has walked the walk! Her husband and four other missionaries had been killed in the jungle, and eventually she and her daughter spent years living with those same people, who eventually came to change their war-like ways as they accepted the love of Christ.

This is an encouraging read focusing on God's sovereignty. Chapters can be read as a daily devotion, especially good to read during trials. EE keeps the big picture in mind --- God is at work behind the scenes.

I was pleased with this seller as the condition of book was as described with speedy transaction! In fact, I received it earlier than expected.

As with all of Elisabeth Elliot's books, I have not been disappointed. She writes about her own life experiences and how the Lord gave her encouragement and strength in the midst of each trial or suffering. She is the "older" woman that we all want to sit with and ask questions of. I highly recommend this book.
