About the Author
Elisabeth Elliot never set out to be a radio personality, famous author, or women’s ministry speaker. She set out to do the will of God—something we don’t hear much about these days. We hear about being missional, relational, and relevant— all of which may have something to do with standing for Christ, and sometimes not. But Elisabeth preferred to ask this key question: Is this God’s will for me, right now, in this place? This has qualified her in an exceptional way to write missionary biography.
Even after tragically losing her husband, Jim Elliot, during his missionary effort to the previously unreached Aucan people of Ecuador, she concluded it was God’s will for her to go there, and trusted God’s faithfulness unfailingly over the years as she took the gospel to the very people who had murdered her husband. Then, and since then, God has used her to minister to millions in writing and speaking. She is the author of Let Me Be a Woman, Discipline: the Glad Surrender, and numerous other books.
