Elisabeth Elliot

Elisabeth Elliot

A godly and influential woman of God, Elisabeth Elliot, has gone into the arms of Jesus this morning.

Elisabeth penned her own biography on ElisabethElliot.org. She was born to missionary parents in Belgium, but the family soon moved to Germantown, Pennsylvania. She met her future husband, Jim Elliot, at Wheaton College. They both went to Ecuador to minister to the Quichua Indians. Jim was one of five missionaries speared to death by Auca Indians, an unreached tribe. Elisabeth remained in Ecuador, sharing the gospel with the Auca and Quichua Indians.

I had the privilege of hearing her speak at a small conference and then a dozen of us sat with her over lunch and peppered her with questions.

She’s written many memorable books about faith and about her time in Ecuador. I highly recommend any of her books. Do you have a favorite?
