Publisher's Description

Shadow of the Almighty is a modern classic story of faithfulness, obedience, and martyrdom. It is the best-selling account of the martyrdom of Jim Elliot and four other missionaries at the hands of the Huaorani Indians in Ecuador.

Shadow of the Almighty has inspired Christians since its first publication in 1958. Elisabeth Elliot makes full use of Jim’s revealing diaries to fill in the details of a life completely committed to God’s service.

This story was reintroduced to today’s audiences in 2006 thanks to the release of the film, End of the Spear, which tells for the first time the killings from the perspective of the Huaorani.

Author Bio

Elisabeth Elliot (born 1926) is a Christian author and evangelist. Her first husband, Jim Elliot, was killed in 1956 while attempting to make missionary contact with the Huaroni of eastern Ecuador. She later spent two years as a missionary to the tribe members who killed her husband. Returning to the United States after many years in South America, she became widely known as the author of over twenty books and as a speaker in constant demand.

    This book is inspiring, soul stirring, and demonstrates a great example of the life of commitment and devotion we as Christians are to live for our King. I highly recommend this book.

    This is by far one of the best, if not the best, Christian biographies I have ever read. Jim Elliot was a real man of God. His life was a testament to his faith in Christ. This was an amazing book. I couldn't put it down. I have begun to read it for the second time.

    This is an excellent account of Jim Elliot's life being it is from his own journal and the experiences his wife, Elisabeth, and he had together. It is not over dramatized, it is a

    simplistic account of a man that loved the Lord Jesus with all his heart and was willing to pay the supreme price for his obedience to his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. This is a heart moving biography of a child of God and his short life with his wife and daughter. This is truly an inspirational read.

    Very good read. A heart stirring reality check for Christians in America. Elliot died to self, lived unto Christ. He didn't die in Ecuador. He died some years before that. It was Christ living through him. Awesome!
