Baker The Journals of Jim Elliot

Jim Elliot was part of a team of young missionaries murdered in Ecuador in 1956 by the Auca Indians to whom they were witnessing. At the age of 29, he left behind a young widow, a baby daughter, and volumes of personal journals written over many years. In 1978, Revell published the complete and unabridged journals, edited by his widow, Elisabeth, and the journals have stayed in print ever since. And it's no wonder--Jim Elliot was an intelligent thinker and strong writer in these personal, yet universal, musings about faith, work, and love. This book is a wonderful account of the life of a man who yearns to know God's plan for his life, details his fascinating missions work, and loves Elisabeth--first as a single man, then as a happily married one. This book will intrigue fans of Jim and Elisabeth Elliot, readers interested in missions, and young people struggling to find God's plan for their lives.

If you long to be a woman/man after Gods own heart then learn from godly examples such as Jim. His intriguing love for Christ will not only sharpen but strengthen your relationship with the Lord. This book is highly recommended but also a prayer that you would pick it up. Buy it and be blessed!!!

Journals are exactly what this book is about. Though I've only gotten through about 1/3 of the book, its inspiring and great for an evening read. They are short and informative reads about his devotions or livings of that day. From my standpoint as a guy, I think it's truly wonderful book and certainly the most unique book I have outside of the Bible. I feel as if someone is examining and wrestling with the same thoughts that I have (spiritually, as a man, life, etc). Its unlike any other book because instead of telling a message, its like you can get right along side of him mentally and share thoughts. Though I never knew or met Jim, and as weird as it sounds, this book lets me think that I knew him personally.

This is the most inspiring book I've ever read. These are words from a man who longs to know his God. Never pass up an opportunity to read through these journals. They will intrigue you and challenge you in your own walk with Christ. A heart-wrenching, yet beautiful read. Enjoy!
