This is the book that continues the incredibly inspiring story.

I read the book entitled "Through Gates of Splendor", and was anxious to read "My Kinsman My Reedemer".

It is superbly written with beautiful photos, many of them taken by the author herself.

I am not a Christian but I was touched by the faith of this woman who went to live with the Indian tribe who had killed her husband in the late 1950s. Considering that this book was penned more than thirty years ago it has aged well. It is superbly written with beautiful photos, many of them taken by the author herself. With her small daughter in tow Elisabeth Eliot kept her faith in an ecologically hostile environment, living with people whose language she barely spoke, and whose way of life was as violent as it was beautiful. I was amazed at how Elisabeth's small daughter Valerie adapted to life in the Amazon Jungle, so much in fact that she preferred the local cuisine to her mother's cooking; she also grasped the complicated language of the Indians far quicker than her mother, and in all probability could have been absorbed into the tribe if her mother had not been there. The Savage My Kinsman is not a condescending book about the conversation of Savages to Christianity. It deals with the subject of God with simplistic honesty; this is a book about a woman, her faith and her desire to continue her dead husband's missionary work. I liked the book very much, and I am glad that even after thirty years it is still in print. If you want a plain read with no frills or flowers, just beautiful photos and straight-forward narrative, then this is the book is worth buying.

The author tells a story of great faith. After her husband and four others were killed by natives, she determined that she could get closure only by living with those natives. Her story is interesting and shows deep faith and a deep commitment to spread the word of Christ.

I read the book entitled "Through Gates of Splendor", and was anxious to read "My Kinsman My Reedemer". The book was fascinating and well written. A great tribute to Christian Missionaries and to those of us who want to serve the Lord Jesus Christ.

Format: Paperback
Elisabeth Elliot is an unbelievably self-sacrificing woman. For her to live amongst the people that murdered her husband, and to live as humbly as she did, is truly amazing. Her book is a must-read for anyone contemplating missions work, as they will find that being a missionary probably will impact them more than it will the people they are serving!

This book changed my life from the time I was five years old in 1967. It still continues to guide my steps today. Had the privilege of meeting Auca Indians in 1971 in Chattanooga, TN, along with the great Elisabeth Elliot.I am looking for the first publication of this book. It is a very large hardback book. Approximate publication would be 1960. Any information would be appreciated. In Christ, Ella

I really enjoyed this book. I read "Through Gates of Splendor" before I read this book. After I finished this book I read "At the end of the Spear" by Nate Saint. I was encouraged to again focus on what God has planned for my life after reading these three books. I recommend this book to all.

This book definitely teaches so clear, in a practical way, how to love our neighbor. Elisabeth Elliot not just lost her husband but also she was willing to love those who took her husband's life. Wonderful story of love. I suggest if you have not read "Shadow of the Almighty: The Life and Testament of Jim Elliot" and "Through Gates of Splendor", you should start with those two. Everything will make more sensed at the end.
