In her first year as a missionary to a small group of native women in the Ecuadorian jungle, Elizabeth Elliot faced physical and spiritual trials. In this book, Elliot captures the mysteries and stark realities surrounding the colorful and primitive world in which she ministered. More than just a recounting of her early days, this is a beautifully crafted and deeply personal reflection on the important questions of life and a remarkable testimony to an authentic Christian commitment.

Review 1 for These Strange Ashes: Is God Still in Charge?
Date:November 14, 2011
Lauren in Scottsdale
Elisabeth has been my spiritual mother. I own all of her writings and have had the privilege of hearing her speak many times. This is my favorite of all her books. In a culture that expects happy endings and swift answers to all prayers (like "magic"), these thoughts on God's sovereignty and our baffling journey of faith have challenged me time and again. I reread this book. (There are few books I can say that about.) I also give it to young missionaries, especially when they are disillusioned by their early days on the field. Highly recommended, from my heart.
