Book Review: Made for the Journey by Elisabeth Elliot

Made for the Journey by Elisabeth Elliot

Elisabeth Elliot is one of my favorite authors, as well as one of my “heroes.” If you have heard of Elisabeth Elliot or read anything she has written, you probably know why. The wisdom she poured out through her life is just wonderful. On top of that, she had such a heart of gold. She has also written a few of my favorite Christian books. Keep a Quiet Heart is one of my all-time favorites. Let Me Be a Woman is a wonderful book for all women to read as well.

Made for the Journey

Made for the Journey is an account of Elisabeth Elliot’s first year as a missionary. She shares the challenges she went through to bring the Word of God to people in Ecuador. To people who were untouched by the outside world, really.

As I read this book, I could think of only one thing. Missions really are not for the faint-hearted. It’s amazing to read such accounts of a year in the life of a missionary. And to be honest, Elisabeth Elliot was quite amazing at it. I honestly found it interesting to read through this account. I have met some missionaries, but I found it very interesting to read about everything she had to go through. All the preparations, language courses, people she met — everything!

So if you are interested in the missions life, I would recommend reading this book. The journey Elisabeth Elliot had to go through to share to Word of God was quite the challenging one. Maybe this isn’t what doing missions looks like these days. I really have no experience. But this book does hold an amazing and interesting account. Therefore this is a good read for anyone interested in missions, but also for anyone interested in the life of Elisabeth Elliot.

I received a copy of this book free from the publisher. However, I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are all my own.

If you have not yet tried Kindle Unlimited, I so recommend you try it! I read most of my books on the Kindle app on iPad, and I love using Kindle. And getting access to a huge library for 30 days for free? Is really an opportunity you should not miss.
