Read in January, 2007

He was an amazing man of God......Jim Elliot. This is not a book to read on vacation. It's the kind of book that I read in small bits and pieces because it's a collection of letters, diaries, and pictures. This book is one that I will keep on my nightstand...forever. The book takes you into the mind and thought life....of Jim Elliott. He was the kind of person that I wish I could be: completely and wholly devoted to Christ. But at times, I felt that he was so keenly aware of his sin nature that I couldn't relate very well and it made me a bit uncomfortable. Jim reognized spiritual pacificism in others, and wasn't afraid to call it out. Here is what I wonder....if he had lived a full life, had a family, etc., how would his diaries have changed?
