‘He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose.’ So wrote Jim Elliot at the age of 22. ‘Seven years later,’ writes his widow, ‘he and four other young men…sat together on a strip of white sand on the Curaray River, deep in Ecuador’s rain forest, waiting for the arrival of a group of men whom they loved, but had never met – savage Stone Age killers, men known to all the world now as Aucas.’ The circumstances of the death of these young men were recounted in ‘Through Gates Of Splendour’ one of the great missionary adventure stories of modern times. This is the account of the whole life of one of them – a life that, though ‘hid with Christ in God’, was in part revealed in the poignant and spiritual writings of his journals. It is round these journals that Elisabeth Elliot has woven the story of his life.
