Shadow of the Almighty

Shadow of the Almighty is a modern classic story of faithfulness, obedience, and martyrdom. It is the best-selling account of the martyrdom of Jim Elliot and four other missionaries at the hands of the Huaorani Indians in Ecuador.

Shadow of the Almighty has inspired Christians since its first publication in 1958. Elisabeth Elliot makes full use of Jim’s revealing diaries to fill in the details of a life completely committed to God’s service.

I’d Do It Again

When the young nurse sailed out of New York Harbor on the Queen Mary in 1950, she couldn’t have imagined that 32 years later she would receive, in an impressive ceremony, Central African Republic’s highest honor for her service to their people. Margery Benedict has written a candid and caring account of the many African friends who found spiritual and physical healing during her forty-five year ministry. This is a life changing account of one person’s experiences as she followed the path the Lord laid out before her – sometimes through frightening circumstances, sometimes through heartbreaking sadness, sometimes through indescribable joy – but always knowing the Lord was at her side.

And the Word Became Power

This is a great example of what God can do with a person who surrenders her life to Him! It gives the 20 year story of how Joanne Shetler gave of herself to move far away and live among the Balangao people group in the Philippines. This tells many of her adventures along the journey. It goes from learning the culture and language, through the trials and hardships of dealing with a culture that succumbs to evil spirits, and onto the completion of God’s plan for these wonderful people.

Revolution in World Missions: One Man’s Journey to Change a Generation

“Lord, I’ll give myself to speak for You.”

Young Yohannan had no idea what those words of surrender would mean for his life and for millions of others in his generation. Once an insecure 16-year-old, he became a missionary statesman who has impacted the world of missions and whose unbending message has touched hungry hearts on every continent.

Step into his story and experience the world through his eyes. You’ll walk right into the book of Acts. And through his telling, you’ll hear the very heart of God beating for His creation. K.P. Yohannan’s passion is contagious and spurs you on to be all for Jesus.

He chose to take the road less traveled many years ago, and today Gospel for Asia, the mission he founded, is one of the most respected organizations in our time with thousands of national workers and vibrant congregations throughout the heart of the 10/40 Window.

Unfolding Destinies

Olive Fleming Liefeld, widow of the missionary Peter Fleming, relates her version of the events already familiar to readers of Elisabeth Elliot’s Through the Gates of Splendor. Olive describes details of the fateful trip in 1956 during which Pete, Jim Elliot, and three others were killed by Waorani Indians in Ecuador.

In 1989, Olive returned to Ecuador and met the Indians who were responsible for her husband’s death. There she discovered previously unknown pieces of the puzzle and gained new insight into the events themselves. She came away with a deeper understanding of the ways God works in the lives and destinies of His people.

A Chance to Die: The Life and Legacy of Amy Carmichael

A Chance to Die is a vibrant portrayal of Amy Carmichael, an Irish missionary and writer who spent fifty-three years in south India without furlough. There she became known as “Amma,” or “mother,” as she founded the Dohnavur Fellowship, a refuge for underprivileged children.

Amy’s life of obedience and courage stands as a model for all who claim the name of Christ. She was a woman with desires and dreams, faults and fears, who gave her life unconditionally to serve her Master.

Bringing Amma to life through inspiring photos and compelling biographical narrative, Elisabeth Elliot urges readers to examine the depths of their own commitment to Christ.

Daughter of the Loom (Bells of Lowell Book #1)

The mill town of Lowell, Massachusetts, comes to life with intrigue and drama from the creative writing team of Judith Miller and Tracie Peterson. Young women at the end of the 19th century seek employment from driven men intent on transforming America’s textile industry. Daughters of the Loom features Lilly Armbruster, who is forced to work in the mills as her only means for survival. But Lilly’s resentment runs deep against the “lords of the loom”–the men she believes have stolen her father’s farm and caused his premature death. Her animosity happens to include Matthew Cheever, her childhood friend and one-time betrothed. Though separated by their opposing views about the future of the mill and the community that surrounds it, the emotions of their hearts still bind them. Will their dreams for the future allow their fragile love to survive?
