Splendor: Elisabeth Elliot

Elisabeth Elliot.

Elisabeth Elliot.

At the Gospel Coalition, Justin Taylor has a brief yet marvelous tribute to Elisabeth Elliot (1926-2015). As a young Christian, I remember reading The Shadow of the Almighty,  a defining classic work on Christian missionary service for much of the last half of the 20th century. Her book chronicled the story of her husband, Jim Elliot, who along with other missionaries, were killed by members of a Ecuadorian native tribe they were trying to reach for Christ. Her other classic work, Passion and Purity, challenged a new generation to rethink dating and reconsider courtship when selecting a mate.

Elliot was an inspiring and formidable woman. As Christianity Today magazine comments, she was and remains a remarkable role model for Christian discipleship. Now she has passed “Through Gates of Splendor.
