Jim Elliot was a devoted husband, father but his life's calling was to teach the Auca Indians about God's love. But only months into his work as a missionary, he and four other young men died while reaching out to this population. The Auca Indians turned on them with their machetes and clubs. This book tells the story of Jim's life of devotion to rescuing the lost. For "he is no fool who gives up what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose."
