I received a copy of MADE FOR THE JOURNEY: ONE MISSIONARY’S FIRST YEAR IN THE JUNGLES OF ECUADOR by Elisabeth Elliot. The foreword is by Kay Warren. The copy is from Revell in exchange for an honest review.
I found this book fascinating. Missionaries have always interested me. I’m awed by their character, their strengths, how they open their hearts to the world. This autobiography is told with knowledge, wit, and heart. The world she describes is brought to life. I loved all of the descriptions. You really felt like you were there. The descriptions were my favorite part of the book.
I imagined myself walking into a coffee shop and seeing the author sitting alone at a table, smiling out the window. I sit beside her and we strike up a conversation. I imagined this book to be that conversation. Her tone in the chapters is always light, never preachy or dry.
She has earned my respect by her deeds and her writing.
