Jim Elliot by Irene Howat tells the story of his life and his death. Jim Elliot had a loving wife, a beautiful little girl, and a reason for real joy. God had called him to bring the good news of Jesus Christ to the Auca Indians. The love of Christ so thrilled Jim that he would gladly spend the rest of his life bringing Jesus to the lost Aucas … but the rest of Jim’s life was only a matter of months.

Persecution and death are a reality for many Christians today. Jim Elliot and four other young men died while doing God’s work, at the hands of the very people they had come to rescue. But Jim realized that there is nothing more worthy of giving your life for than Jesus, and was known for saying: “He is no fool who gives up what he cannot keep, to gain what he cannot lose.” This is the story of Jim’s love for a warlike people and for his Savior.

Included in this book Jim Elliot, is a map, timeline and information on Ecuador.

Spurgeon: A New Biography by Arnold A. Dallimore

Publisher’s Review: It was fitting the Dr. Arnold Dallimore (1911-1998), author of a two-volume Life of Whitefield (and more recently of The Life of Edward Irving> should then give us a book on the Charles Haddon Spurgeon (1834-92). . . [Dr. Dallimore] set out “to understand and present something of the inner man ” Spurgeon in his praying, his sufferings and depressions, his weaknesses and strengths; in his triumphs, humor, joys, and incredible accomplishments—.

It is no easy task to depict “so tremendous a personality” as that of Spurgeon in a brief volume, but in 250 pages it is here accomplished, and with a large measure of success. It will meet the need of those completely ignorant of Spurgeon and his vast achievements, but will stir also the interest of all who value a unique ministry, yielding 62 volumes of “deathless” sermons and many other highly valuable publications.

The year was 1955, when five young men dared to make contact with a Stone Age tribe deep in the jungles of Ecuador. Their goal: to bring the gospel to a people whose only previous response to the outside world was to attack all strangers. This is the famous true story of these young missionaries who were savagely killed while trying to establish communication with the Auca Indians. The story is told through the eyes of Elisabeth Elliot, the wife of one of the young men who was killed, through this wonderful book, Through Gates of Splendor. The tragic outcome does not conceal the admirable zeal and ingenuity of those passionately determined to bring the gospel to every tribe.
