Each man had promised the others that he would not save himself by killing those they had sought out in Jesus' name. Jim Elliot and his coworkers surrendered their lives in Ecuador's jungle, trusting that their sacrifice would not be in vain. Decades later, this dramatic event has challenged countless Christians to live with one great purpose: to bring the gospel to those who have never heard.

Me encanto este libro por que aparte de que me hizo llorar en una parte, los escritores saben como captar las cosas. Fue genial vivir esta experiencia con Jim, sus amigos y sus esposas. May 04, Sarahelisabeth rated it really liked it Shelves: vtreadingchallenge This book is a children's biography of Jim Elliot starting with his departure for Ecuador.
It deals with the difficulty of having months of work washed away by rain and with the attempts to contact the Auca tribe. The martyrdom is described although not particularly vividly. My only hesitation about the book is that this might come as rather a shock for any child who wasn't particularly expecting this to happen.
Anyone who knows the story will have realised that there is a clue in the first This book is a children's biography of Jim Elliot starting with his departure for Ecuador. Anyone who knows the story will have realised that there is a clue in the first chapter but I can see a child missing this.

We sing about Jim and Elizabeth Elliot in our history timeline song and we had talked about them briefly. They knew that they were martyrs but their death was still quite shocking for them.
Jun 23, Ta'Neisha Kemp rated it it was amazing. Jim's story is truly amazing! I am also grateful for the work of his wife and her accounts of his life. We enjoy this series as a family read aloud and are always strengthened by the testimonies. There is also a cartoon movie and several documentaries featuring this story. I suggest watching one or two after reading.
