Jim Elliot Reviews
this book was... well I thought that the author dragged some parts on too long.I didn't wanna finish reading it.But if you do wanna read about Jim Elliot, than I highly reccomend "Through Gates of Splendor".
The book "Jim Elliot One Great Purpose" by Janet and Geoff Benge is divide into 16 Chapters. The book begins with Jim Elliot who has been dreaming since he was a child to become a missionary. He heard of a tribe called the Auca who he really wanted to reach, especially since they were known for their hatred and killing anyone who didn't belong to their own tribe. Why he decided to become a missionary was a quite simple reason. He gathered several datasheets and facts about how many missionaries were in the world, how many people die in a day, and how many people there are currently for every missionary in the world. It was an awful big number and he wanted to help with giving himself for a tribe that has never been touched by civilization and to whom nobody has ever brought the gospel to. The book is written in a catchy way, which makes the reader find out what is about to happen next. the language is clear and easy to understand. I would recommend the book to anyone who has considered devoting their life as a missionary but also someone who has never even thought about the needs in the world. It is an amazing book that shows very well how people who give their life to God get a huge reward from it, and maybe not even in their lifetime but after, and that is what counts.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book and was greatly challenged. Looking forward to continue to read many other biographies.
