    He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot loose Jim Elliot Very simply written for all ages both young and old alike were really moved by Jim's story Most of this book focuses on setting up the personality of Jim Elliot and his drive and passion so that we continue to see who he was and what obstacles he faced as he became a missionary to the Auca Indians in the Ecuadorian territory While the story did begin rather slow for my younger readers by the time Jim reached the shores of uinchua land all of us were vested in his life and what the legacy he would leave behind

    Jim publicly refused to go to the school dance The teenager firmly believed that Christians should not dance Jim was weary of distractions that might lead him away from God The biggest distraction he avoided was girls Though Jim was “handsome engaging intelligent and genuinely talented” he intentionally kept a good distance from girls “Domesticated males aren’t much use for adventure” he once said On social gatherings whenever a young lady caught the eye of one of his buddies Jim would notice the spark and head straight way to his friend and whisper “Beware Fisher Beware” Jim steered far away from girls Prov 57 9 Young men listen to me and never forget what I'm about to say Run from her Don't go near her house lest you fall to her temptation and lose your honor and give the remainder of your life to the cruel and merciless; TLB When Jim went to school he always took his Bible along prayed before lunch and spoke freely about Jesus to any who would listen Jim was a part of the speech team in high school but he refused to partake in a political speech during a presidential campaign “on the grounds that a follower of Jesus could not participate in war or politics” Jim wholeheartedly gave everything to God He would let no distractions take away his time from God Jim was dedicated and focused on God While most of his friends were out at football games or social gatherings Jim was spending time in prayer and reflecting on God’s Word He would do this for 8 hours a day until finally one of his friends convinced Jim to go to a football game “He went to a football game that fall for the first time with mixed feelings Although he had played football in high school he now uestioned the value of a spectator activity that consisted largely of sitting in the bleachers and shouting There did not seem to be much point in it After all it was not as if the crowd was shouting praise to God It was just a silly competition He returned to his room convinced than ever that his time was better spent alone in fellowship with God” The amazing thing about Jim is that he did not seek girls or attention And when girls went after him he steered away not towards them Jim did everything to seek after God and was content to live a celibate life He did not seek girls In fact he did everything to seek after God and was content to live as an “eunuch for Christ” The verse Jim lived by and proclaimed openly is that he would be an “eunuch for the kingdom” Matt 1912 For some are eunuchs because they were born that way; others were made that way by men; and others have renounced marriage because of the kingdom of heaven The one who can accept this should accept it from New International Version Jim had accepted it Though he did everything he could not to get married “The women went after Jim He was attractive and personable and had emerged from the class a natural leader But his reputation for being uninterested in women persisted” Jim was steadfast He did not date girls and remained sexually pure” To Jim’s dismay he could not stay single On October 1953 Jim married a lady named Elisabeth who was just under 6 feet tall They went to Latin America to become missionaries In 1945 Jim went to Wheaton college and wanted to be a missionary in Latin America to a tribe of people who had never heard the gospel Jim gathered whatever statistics on missions and kept them in a small black notebook that he carried with him What was written in the black notebook? These were the statistics that Jim read every day 1700 languages did not have a word of the bible translated 90 % of people who volunteer for the mission field never got there 64 % of the world had never heard of Christ 5000 people died every hour There was 1 Christian worker for every 50000 people in foreign lands while there was 1 to every 500 in the US Jesus said some crushing words that still ring true today Luke 102 3 The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few Ask the Lord of the harvest therefore to send out workers into his harvest field Go I am sending you out like lambs among wolves” from New International Version Keith Green said it is so easy for us to give money to the mission field but he challenged Christians to go a step further Go to the mission field and serve If young Mormons can give 2 years before they start out in life why cannot Christians?” Jim Elliot became a missionary who was speared to death and in his last moments maybe he lost hope and thought he was a failure and maybe he thought he killed his friends by dragging them along He must have thought he failed to hear God clearly But in Heaven Jim would instantly catch a glimpse 50 years years into the future of how God turned a bad situation to good as Jim would become the most famous missionary of the 20th century covered in LIFE magazine books and even a Hollywood movie

    Even if you know the ending you still can’t help but smile Like He always does God wins Jim Elliot really was a hero of the faith This book was hard to put down

    There was a lot of background story as to the struggles of being extremely devoted to the beliefs he held on to while as a young man in high school in college and not being easily swayed by those around him which I thought sounded very interesting considering how most kids get involved with whatever they feel like it in that age group He sounded very inspiring and dedicated to God I loved the development you got to learn about the relationship he had with his wife You were also able to see the long term dream coming into effect and how he didn't uickly jump to wherever he FELT God wanted him to be a missionary at but waited on God and was patient I think that's awesome As for the story about reaching a tribe never reached before that is so sincere that he worked so hard to reach his goal Once he did reach that goal it seems a bit of a loss but in the end you see that the work of God through this man was able to spread widely without him truly even having to say anything to these people Very good story a little slow at times or repetitive I love learning about people who work in the mission field though so it was worth it


  6. Stephanie Ricker Stephanie Ricker says:

    Because I was remarkably ignorant for a Christian of the story I read Heroes of the Faith Jim Elliot by Susan Martins Miller after receiving it as a gift from my boyfriend SO FRUSTRATING Reading about Jim Elliot was almost painful—not because of what happened to him but because of what an insufferable jerk he was for most of his life I wanted to smack him the entire time I also have mixed feelings about foreign missions anyway and this brought all of those conflicting ideas to the fore as the author hinted the tragedy might have been prevented if time had been spent in preparation linguistic study and less risky forms of outreach before going out to meet the Auca personally I still gave the book three stars because the author did a good job of relating the story and of being fairly objective

    This was an awesome book and tribute to a wonderful missionary of God I had heard the story but was not sure of the men's name involved I had been to the Mission Aviation Fellowship and to now read the story was great The movie was great also God used the death of the men to bring about good I dont think I could live with the people that killed my husband To learn that it may have been a simple photograph that caused the death of the men was hard to read also Five men who gave their lives to serve and teach others about God They had planned for this trip for years and at the end to have little knowledge of this tribe language wise and what seemed a small misunderstanding led to death

    I've heard of Jim Elliot's famous uote before He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose This biography has been sitting and staring at me on the table next to my bed I FINALLY picked it up to read on Easter and read 34 of it It's so encouraging and inspiring to read of the lives of Christians who give their all for God for the advancement of His kingdom The ending was VERY surprising to me and I will leave it for you to find out Check it out when you can


  9. Shu Yi Shu Yi says:

    He is no fool who gives what he cannot keepto gain what he cannot loseThis biography of the life of Jim Elliot keenly engaged my attention and eventually my respect Jim Elliot lived a life that is transparent and that was wholly given over to God My main takeaways was knowing that our lives may seem like failures but God can still use us and often His plans and purposes are far beyond what we can now see and understand


  10. Jaclynn Jaclynn says:

    I wasn’t sure if I’d get much out of this book than I already had from other bios on Jim Elliot But it was a great and would be good for someone younger to read as well I learned a lot about Jim’s life before he went to South America as well as the actual reason why the Aucas attacked him and fellow missionaries that fateful day
