Primarily made up of letters and journal entries Jim Elliot wrote while at college and while preparing for and then serving on the mission field, this inspirational classic of modern evangelism provides an intimate portrait of a man who wanted to live his life fully for Christ, no matter what the cost.
The main message is that to know Christ is to obey him, and that it is worth laying down anything and everything for Christ. It is out of this foundation that Jim wrote his famous words: "He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep, to gain what he cannot lose." X
