Editorial Reviews

Review

"In this striking biography, Vaughn (Time Peace) sets out to discover the heart and soul of missionary and author Elisabeth Elliot (1926–2015). In the 1950s, Elliot served as a missionary to the Waodani tribe of Ecuador after her husband, Jim Elliot, and four others were killed by the tribe while trying to make contact. Vaughn recounts that story, bringing to light the deep desires, anguish, and imperfect life of Elliot, including her tense relationship with Rachel Saint, sister to another one of the missionaries who had died, who isolated herself from other missionaries among the Waodani. A deep thinker and lover of poetry who wanted nothing more than to do God’s will, Elliot eventually found her calling in ministry to Christians rather than to those outside the faith. 

The biography’s second half largely deals with challenges of navigating a life of biblical faith at odds with cultural Christianity: Elliot 'chafed at the disparity between what she saw in the gospel and what she saw in the organized church,' Vaughn writes. 'She was quick to pick up the scent of hypocrisy and legalism, but she always applied such analysis to herself first.' Even those well-acquainted with Elliot’s works will find fresh perspective and revealing insights here."

5.0 out of 5 stars A growth experience between two covers.
By G. Levesque on November 18, 2022
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
The writing is impeccable, well researched, and without exaggeration or useless fluff. A longtime mentor of mine from her written words alone, Elisabeth Elliot’s inner workings and personal history are revealed in even more illuminating ways than I’ve seen before. Courage breeds courage, and Elisabeth’s courage emboldens mine in my own real world. Her unwavering focus on Christ amidst the whole world turning upside down around her…I can’t even. She lived out the sound theology that she preached and gave us vision for doing the same—a gift to the Church that she may have never intended to pass on. Thank you Ellen Vaughn, for the treasure you have given us in writing this book!
