Als Jim Elliot am 8. Januar 1956 in den Regenwäldern Ecuadors durch die Pfeile von Auca-Indianern starb, sprachen damals viele von einer grauenvollen Tragödie. Doch Gott benutzte den Tod dieses jungen Missionars - er wurde nur 29 Jahre alt - , um unzählige Menschen in aller Welt in die konsequente Nachfolge zu rufen. Jim Elliots Frau Elisabeth hat das Zeugnis dieses Lebens anhand von Tagebuchaufzeichnungen und Briefen zusammengestellt und kommentiert. Beeindruckend zeigt es die geistliche Entwicklung eines begabten jungen Mannes, der zielstrebig und mit großer Klarheit seiner Berufung als Missionar folgte - welchen Preis es auch kosten mochte. Der Weg Jim Elliots fordert heraus, die eigenen Lebensziele und -inhalte neu zu überprüfen. Dieses Buch zeigt einen Christen, der ebenso nüchtern wie kompromisslos lebte, was er glaubte: "Der ist kein Tor, der hingibt, was er nicht behalten kann, auf dass er gewinne, was er nicht verlieren kann."

Biblical purity is not merely a line we are called not to cross; it is a lifestyle we are called to live. It is more than physical restraint. True purity involves our minds, motives, and actions. Culture says to follow your heart. Scripture says follow God. It is time we start living like Jesus’ followers in every area of our lives, sold out for His glory. Romance and love are no exception. Books written on the topics of romance, singleness, and purity are looking back, but I am looking forward. I have never dated or kissed, and I’m eighteen. Most people my age have already dated, kissed, and lost their virginity; some have even experienced pregnancy. For young adults, divorce and cohabitation rates are beyond acceptable. Abortion numbers have amassed to over nine holocausts. And I am compelled to stand in the gap. If no one makes a stand, we can only expect even worse consequences to come. It’s time to stop playing in the muck of this world and slapping a Christian label on it. We need to be resolute in surrendering our lives to the authorship of God. And that surrender starts now—before the altar.

There are no regrets when we follow God." Whitney Fee
