The Experience of an Iconic Christian Woman | Made for the Journey: One Missionary's First Year in the Jungles of Ecuador by Elisabeth Elliot


In her first year as a missionary to a small group of native women in the Ecuadorian jungle, Elisabeth Elliot faced physical and spiritual trials. In Made for the Journey, Elliot captures the mysteries and stark realities surrounding the colorful and primitive world in which she ministered. More than just a recounting of her early days, this is a beautifully crafted and deeply personal reflection on the important questions of life and a remarkable testimony to authentic Christian obedience to God.

While I’ve heard of Elisabeth Elliot and knew a bit of her story, I had not read anything written by her until picking up Made for the Journey: One Missionary’s First Year in the Jungles of Ecuador—and oh, I’m glad I read this one. Elliot details her early missionary experience, and she does not hesitate to show her struggles, doubts, flaws, confusion, etc. It is not easy to remain on a journey when nothing seems to go as anticipated, but through it all, she still gains a better picture of who God is and how He works.

I appreciate Elliot’s honesty (and touches of humor) in Made for the Journey. It helps to bring this iconic Christian woman to life in vivid detail, and I couldn’t help feeling encouraged by her words.


Thanks to Revell Reads, I received a complimentary copy of Made for the Journey and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.
