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 customers think about Keep A Quiet Heart?

Practical  Dec 2, 2005
As others have said, this book makes a great devotional with each of the chapters being two pages long. It will help you focus on a small, important subject.

The best thing about Mrs. Elliot's writing is her disciplined, practical approach. This is not a vague, "Your'e a Christian, be at peace." But rather a "If situation A is disturbing you, read verse B and do exactly what it says. Here is how I handled a similar situation and was able to find peace in Jesus Christ."

I would also recommend the tape or cd series entitled "Keep a Quiet Heart"; especially if you like audio books.
 
Worthy and helpful Evangelical essays  Jan 17, 2003
...I found these short Evangelical essays to be based in Biblical truths and geared toward the problems of human life and the human condition and, in some instances, prophetic messages about the particular evils of our time and society.
The little essays may be read as daily devotional pieces or, as I did, the book may be approached and read through in several settings.
 
Comfort in the Storm  Jul 25, 2002
I found this book about 7 years ago and have continually turned to it for comfort. I have given it as a gift over a dozen times and each reciever has found the same comfort. Perfect for a friend who cannot seem to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Elisabeth Elliot's approach is one of no nonsense.
She tells it like it is, yet gives hope.
 
EXCELLENT DEVOTIONAL  Dec 8, 2000
Elisabeth Elliot holds true to her style of communicating God's Word with extraordinary practicality and love. The articles are small, (perfect for devotional reading) and packed with truth. Will give you lots to think and pray about during the day.
 
For women who want peacefulness  Sep 10, 2000
Elizabeth Elliot has, not only a way with words, but a way of reaching a woman's heart. She lifted me up and encouraged me to become a woman that would please God with a quiet and gentle spirit.
