Item description for Love Has A Price Tag by Elisabeth Elliot...
Overview In Elisabeth Elliot's collection of inspirational readings, she reveals what it means to live a life fully given to Christ. While the price of loving God requires that we take a moment to slow down and seek to follow His will in all things, we are greatly rewarded by the miracles that we begin to see in our lives and beyond. From a hospital in Georgia to a mission station in the Andes, from a seminary in Massachusetts to a secluded house in Jamaica, Elisabeth Elliot introduces us to people and places where simple faith has witnessed the power of God in the stuff of everyday living. Pay the price to wholeheartedly love and serve God, and discover the blessings of a life filled with wonder from the miraculous to the mundane.

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.
