Book by Elisabeth Elliot
By MANDY SAELER
Shadow of the Almighty has remained one of my all-time favorite books since I read it as a teenager. As I learned about this zealous man of God’s life, a desire grew in my own heart to know and live for Christ without reserve, just as he did. The testimony of his faith greatly impacted my young walk with God, convincing me of His trust-worthiness, faithfulness, and the amazing promises found in His Word.
In this book, you’ll observe a man who truly counted his own life as nothing, and instead chose to live out radical faith, surrender, and obedience to Jesus Christ. Filled with journal entries, letters to loved ones, and comments from his wife (Elisabeth Elliot) who compiled this book after his death, the story of this man’s life and faith will surely stoke the embers of your soul. Each time I pick this book up my faith is fueled and my desire to live each day passionately for Christ stirred! (And for an added bonus, consider purchasing the audiobook version of this book, narrated by Elisabeth Elliot!)
