Shadow of the Almighty: The Life & Testament of Jim Elliot

Front Cover
The murder of Jim Elliot and four fellow missionaries by the Auca Indians in 1956 shocked the nation and motivated thousands to a life of service. The story of what led Elliot to the jungles of Ecuador, told by his wife, Elisabeth, has become a modern Christian classic. Drawing from her husband's rich and revealing diaries, she exposes the roots of what made her husband commit his very being to God, knowing that he might be called to an unexpected death in the prime of life. Shadow of the Almighty is a portrait of a rare and remarkable man of faith. Book jacket.
