Elisabeth Elliot was a young missionary in Ecuador when members of a remote Amazonian indigenous people group killed her husband Jim and his four colleagues. And yet, she stayed in the jungle with her young daughter to minister to the very people who had thrown the spears, demonstrating the power of Christ’s forgiveness. Elisabeth went on to write dozens of books, host a long-running radio show, and speak at conferences all over the world. And while things in the limelight might have looked golden, her suffering continued refining her in many different and unexpected ways. Author Ellen Vaughn was with us some time ago to talk about the early years of Elisabeth Elliot. Her first book is Becoming Elisabeth Elliot.
Just released is the second volume in the authorized biography, Being Elisabeth Elliot. Ellen was back this morning to share the “rest of the story."
