Summary, etc.:
"Elisabeth Elliot was a young missionary in Ecuador when members of a violent Amazonian tribe savagely speared her husband Jim and his four colleagues. Incredibly, prayerfully, Elisabeth took her toddler daughter, snakebite kit, Bible, and journal...and, with fellow missionary Rachel Saint, lived in the jungle with the Stone-Age people who killed their loved ones. Compelled by their friendship and forgiveness, many in the tribe came to faith in Jesus. The courageous, no-nonsense Elisabeth went on to write dozens of books, host a long-running radio show, and speak at conferences all over the world. She was a pillar of coherent, committed faith; a beloved and sometimes controversial icon. In this authorized biography, bestselling author Ellen Vaughn uses Elisabeth's unpublished journals, and candid interviews with her family and friends, to paint the adventures and misadventures God used to shape one of the most influential women in modern church history. It's the story of a brilliant, sensual, witty, self-deprecating, sensitive, radical, and surprisingly relatable person utterly submitted to doing God's will, no matter how high the cost. For Elisabeth, the central question was not, "How does this make me feel?" but, simply, "Is this true?" If so, then the next question was, "What do I need to do about it to obey God?" -- Book jacket.
