The story that riveted a nation and inspired millions.
The murder of Jim Elliot and four fellow missionaries by the Auca Indians in 1956 shocked the nation and motivated thousands to a life of service. Told by his wife, Elisabeth, the story of what led Elliot to the jungles of Ecuador has become a modern Christian classic. Drawing from her husband’s rich and revealing diaries, she exposes the roots of what made him commit his very being to God, knowing that he might be called to an unexpected death in the prime of his life. Shadow of the Almighty is a portrait of a rare and remarkable man of faith.
