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.
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.
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.
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.
Through the compelling story of Bible translators Neil and Carol Anderson, we relearn something we may have forgotten the raw power of God’s Word to wrench human lives from darkness and flood the heart with light, understanding and peace.
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.
Eight women from eight different countries shared similar experiences of hardship and persecution, all for their faith in Christ. Yet they all emerged from adversity as heroines. From the young Vietnamese girl who turned down freedom in order to share the gospel in her Communist homeland, to the Australian missionary who spread the message of forgiveness and healing across India after her husband and sons were burned alive, these women overcame Extreme adversity to become leaders and ministers of the underground church in Pakistan, India, Romania, the former Soviet Union, China, Vietnam, Nepal and Indonesia.
Ravi Zacharias lived an extraordinary life. In this touching memoir, Zacharias shares an intimate look into his formative years, inviting you to follow him all the way back to his roots and journey with him through his life: to see and smell the neighborhood in India where he grew up, to feel a mother’s love and the consternation of a harsh father, and the lure of friends and sports.
He also tells about his long search for truth in wrestling with Eastern thought and the newer ideas of Christianity, the cry for help in a dark moment when he tried to take his own life–and the dramatic turning point that led to a life lived for Christ. Zacharias recalls his early days as a new convert, what it was like to find a new life in the Western world, and the eventual birth and growth of a worldwide ministry.
He has traveled from the East to the West, and then back again to answer skeptics’ penetrating questions about the meaning of life and the existence of a God who is there for his children.
