The savage my kinsman by Elisabeth Elliot ( Book )
17 editions published between 1961 and 2004 in English and held by 855 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In January of 1956, the world recoiled in shock with the news. Five American missionaries had been speared to death in the Equadorian jungles by Auca Indians, reportedly the most savage tribe on earth. Years later, it became clear that what had seemed to be the tragic ending of those missionaries' dreams was only the first chapter of one of the most breathtaking missionary stories of the twentieth century. The Savage, My Kinsman tells the story, in text and pictures, of Elisabeth Elliot's venture into Auca territory three years after the death of her husband, Jim Elliot. Elisabeth and her daughter Valerie, then three years old, returned to the jungle along with Rachel Saint, the sister of one of the other slain men. The linguistic work of these women brought Christ's message of salvation to the tribe that had killed their loved ones. They became the first to enter Auca territory and live to tell the story. - Publisher
Shadow of the Almighty : the life & testament of Jim Elliot by Elisabeth Elliot ( Book )

"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. This story was reintroduced to today?s audiences in 2006 thanks to the release of the film, End of the Spear, which tells for the first time the killings from the perspective of the Huaorani." -- from publisher's website

Let me be a woman : notes on womanhood for Valerie by Elisabeth Elliot ( Book )
10 editions published between 1976 and 2013 in English and French and held by 400 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
We are called to be women. The fact that I am a woman does not make me a different kind of Christian, but the fact that I am a Christian does make me a different kind of woman. For I have accepted God's idea of me, and my whole life is an offering back to him of all that I am and all that he wants me to be. In these days of conflicting demands and cultural pressures, what kind of woman do you wish to be? How should you respond? What should you think? Elisabeth Elliot is one of Christendom's most able and articulate writers. In this profound and moving book she presents her unique perspective. Now married a third time after losing two husbands through death, she offers golden insights which apply to the single, the married, and the widowed. These notes on womanhood, written to her daughter Valerie a few weeks before Val's marriage, are a gift of lasting worth for all Christian women. - Back cover

Radical feminism has blurred the distinction between the sexes, leaving many men and women today stranded in regard to forming their sex roles. In this book, Elisabeth Elliot brings into focus the separate functions that God assigned to Adam and Eve, which show that the sexes are gloriously and radically unequal. Written as personal advice to her nephew Pete, her convictions on manliness will help you to see the glory and purpose of true masculinity and reassure you as you shape your own Christian sexual identity. - Flyleaf
