Item Description...
Forty years ago the world was shocked by the news that Auca Indians martyred Jim Elliot and four other American missionaries in the jungles of Ecuador. That was the first chapter of one of the most breathtaking stories of the twentieth century. The Savage My Kinsman tells the story in text and pictures of Elisabeth Elliot's venture into Auca territory to live with the same Indians who killed her husband. With her three-year-old daughter and the sister of one of the murdered missionaries, Elisabeth Elliot courageously evangelized the Aucas, introducing her husband's slayers to Christ. This special fortieth-anniversary edition carries an epilogue in which she recounts the exciting events of another memorable visit in 1996.

More About Elisabeth Elliot

Elisabeth Elliot ELISABETH ELLIOT, well-known author and speaker, is the author of The Music of His Promises, Keep a Quiet Heart and dozens of other books. She and her husband, Lars Gren, live in Massachusetts.

In The Author's Own Words...

My parents were missionaries in Belgium where I was born. When I was a few months old, we came to the U.S. and lived in Germantown, not far from Philadelphia, where my father became an editor of the Sunday School Times. Some of my contemporaries may remember the publication which was used by hundreds of churches for their weekly unified Sunday School teaching materials.

Our family continued to live in Philadelphia and then in New Jersey until I left home to attend Wheaton College. By that time, the family had increased to four brothers and one sister. My studies in classical Greek would one day enable me to work in the area of unwritten languages to develop a form of writing.

A year after I went to Ecuador, Jim Elliot, whom I had met at Wheaton, also entered tribal areas with the Quichua Indians. In nineteen fifty three we were married in the city of Quito and continued our work together. Jim had always hoped to have the opportunity to enter the territory of an unreached tribe. The Aucas were in that category -- a fierce group whom no one had succeeded in meeting without being killed. After the discovery of their whereabouts, Jim and four other missionaries entered Auca territory. After a friendly contact with three of the tribe, they were speared to death.

Our daughter Valerie was 10 months old when Jim was killed. I continued working with the Quichua Indians when, through a remarkable providence, I met two Auca women who lived with me for one year. They were the key to my going in to live with the tribe that had killed the five missionaries. I remained there for two years.

After having worked for two years with the Aucas, I returned to the Quichua work and remained there until 1963 when Valerie and I returned to the U.S.

Since then, my life has been one of writing and speaking. It also included, in 1969, a marriage to Addison Leitch, professor of theology at Gordon Conwell Seminary in Massachusetts. He died in 1973. After his death I had two lodgers in my home. One of them married my daughter, the other one, Lars Gren, married me. Since then we have worked together.

Elisabeth Elliot currently resides in Magnolia, in the state of Massachusetts.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Great Book  Jan 18, 2007
I really enjoyed this book. I read "Through Gates of Splendor" before I read this book. After I finished this book I read "At the end of the Spear" by Nate Saint. I was encouraged to again focus on what God has planned for my life after reading these three books. I recommend this book to all.
Very Good!  Sep 8, 2006
This book definitely teaches so clear, in a practical way, how to love our neighbor. Elisabeth Elliot not just lost her husband but also she was willing to love those who took her husband's life. Wonderful story of love. I suggest if you have not read "Shadow of the Almighty: The Life and Testament of Jim Elliot" and "Through Gates of Splendor", you should start with those two. Everything will make more sensed at the end.
The Love of Elizabeth Elliott  Mar 28, 2006
I read the book entitled "Through Gates of Splendor", and was anxious to read "My Kinsman My Reedemer". The book was fascinating and well written. A great tribute to Christian Missionaries and to those of us who want to serve the Lord Jesus Christ.
Incredible Story of Sacrifice  Jan 16, 2006
Elisabeth Elliot is an unbelievably self-sacrificing woman. For her to live amongst the people that murdered her husband, and to live as humbly as she did, is truly amazing. Her book is a must-read for anyone contemplating missions work, as they will find that being a missionary probably will impact them more than it will the people they are serving!
The continuing naivete crisis....  Nov 28, 2005
Why can't these poor indigenous tribes just be left alone? Why all this proselytizing? So they can become shorts- and t-shirt-wearing indigents who hang around Westernized settlements? They had beliefs of their own, for heaven's sake!
