Product Description

This is the story of the woman whose life of faith and devotion inspired the hymn "Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus." Although art critic John Ruskin enthusiastically proclaimed Lilias Trotter's potential as one of the best artists of the nineteenth century, her devotion to Christ compelled her to abandon the life of art, privilege, and leisure she could have enjoyed.

Without knowing the language and without the sponsorship of any organization, Lilias left her London home of comfort for a modest dwelling in Algeria, where her love of literature and art became dynamic tools for evangelism, and where her compassionate heart captured the hearts of the people. For forty years, despite frail health and many obstacles, Lilias devoted herself to missionary service among the people of Algeria through her lifestyle of love and encouragement.

Publisher's Description

You may not have heard of Lilias Trotter, but you know the hymn she inspired—"Turn Your Eyes upon Jesus." After you read A Passion for the Impossible, you'll never hear that song without remembering Lilias and what she did.

She left her life of privilege in England and her promising art career to settle in hostile Algeria. Dismissed because she was a woman, the Algerian men accused her of being a British spy.

But for the sake of the gospel, she never quit, no matter how many obstacles were in her path.

You'll marvel as you read about this woman's passion for the impossible, her brilliantly gifted life, and the miraculous ways the Lord used her to pierce the shadows of that Islamic landscape.

    My daughter suggested I read this book because I enjoy biographies. I have now read it two times and will probably read it again. Her walk with God, her determination to share His Word wherever she could, being faithful to look for new ones God might have for them, and always sharing his love with those she met until her dying day was very challenging to me. This from a lady with a heart condition who had to take yearly trips to rest so she could continue to go where God gave her an open door. God used her passion for art and people for His glory
