Shadow of the Almighty: The Life and Testament of Jim Elliot
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.

Worthwhile to read about this extraodinary life.
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!
