Devotedly: The Personal Letters and Love Story of Jim and Elisabeth Elliot

2 Reviews
SKU: C03884B


Their paths to God’s purpose led them together.

Many know the heroic story of Jim Elliot’s violent death in 1956, killed along with four other missionaries by a primitive Ecuadorian tribe they were seeking to reach. Many also know the prolific legacy of Elisabeth Elliot, whose inspiring influence on generations of believers through print, broadcast, and personal testimony continues to resonate, even after her own death in 2015.

What many don’t know is the remarkable story of how these two stalwart personalities—single-mindedly devoted to pursuing God’s will for their young lives, certain their future callings would require them to sacrifice forever the blessings of marriage—found their hearts intertwined. Their paths to God’s purpose led them together.

Now, for the first time, their only child—daughter Valerie Elliot Shepard—unseals never-before-published letters and private journals that capture in first-person intimacy the attraction, struggle, drama, and devotion that became a most unlikely love story.

Riveting for old and young alike, this moving account of their personal lives shines as a gold mine of lived-out truth, hard-fought purity, and an insider’s view on two beloved Christian figures.

8 - 9 point font is unacceptable for print resources

What a disappointment. I bought this for my Mom, who immediately recounted her memory of Elliot's events. Given the content, it's very likely an older crowd would want to read it, but the print is TINY!! What was this publisher thinking? What a waste of all the author's efforts. My Mom still took it because of course she wanted to read it, but I doubt she ever will. Spend the few extra cents on bigger font so your readers can enjoy.

Valuable discipleship and wonder story

So, so valuing this inner life workings of this family. Faithfulness in the little and the big, by God’s grace! A wonderfully told story, traced by their daughter, and super inspiring! Let us all learn to trust our God more and more!
