    About "Elisabeth Elliot"

      • Elisabeth Elliot

        From the Author s Web Site 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.

    1. "We are called to be women. The fact that I am a woman does not make me a different kind of Christian, but the fact that I am a Christian does make me a different kind of woman." -Elisabeth Elliot; Let Me Be a WomanThis was the most beautiful and encouraging book I've read in a long time. Elisabeth Elliot writes with eloquence and wisdom and her words constantly reflect Christ and the Scriptures. Reading this book made me rejoice even more that God created me to be a woman! It made me thankful f [...]


    2. Encouraged to read this by my girlfriend. One of hers, and my sister's, favorite books. To be frank, I was expecting some kind of cliche proto-complementarianism (not that that is at all a bad thing) that would play on a girls emotions, but boy was I wrong. This book is theologically sophisticated (Calvin, Luther, Barth, etc. are all quoted often), subversively rebellious (her mockery of feminism is humorous, though I'm sure causes all sorts of outrage), and includes a very convincing, easily-ac [...]



    3. fantastic book.i am so glad and honored to have it read at this young age of 17. i think every woman ought to read this. it's very inspiring for us who desire to live the way our Creator would be pleased.Elisabeth Elliot, along with other Christian writers Eric & Leslie Ludy, and Joshua Harris, is my favorite. Elliot has enlightened me in a unique way. at the back cover it's stated that the book is "candidly written". after seeing the word "candid", i wondered how a book could actually be. a [...]


    4. Why in hell's holy cacaphonous gonging BELLS did I buy this book from the library? I grabbed a bunch of paperback Anita Blake books from back when the books were somewhat good with the intention of having a lay in bed and read entertaining books sort of weekend.So I saw this book, read a bit of it and decided to buy it just to pester myself.Why can't their be a book called let me be the sort of woman I am? Who loves blue, spiders, wearing men's clothes, admiring the aesthetics of people's poster [...]


    5. How did I go so many years without reading Elisabeth Elliot? This book was pure grace and goodness, entering my life at the moment that I, without even knowing, was the most thirsty for it. Mrs. Elliot's winsome, lovely, godly advice reminded me so much of Nancy Wilson's (such as in "Why Isn't a Pretty Girl Like You Married?"), I occasionally had to check the front cover to make sure I hadn't grabbed the wrong book. Both women have been blessings indeed. Many thanks to my big sister who gifted m [...]


    6. When my mom was reading 'Let me be a Woman' she said she wanted to underline the whole book (it was so good) I told her that defeated the purpose of underlining, but when I read it I felt the exact same way she did! It was amazing!


    7. Age Appropriate For: 15 and up (some marital themes and matter best for older readers)Best for Ages: 15 and upElisabeth Elliot is an incredible woman whom I have looked up to for years. Though I might not always agree with everything she says, I know whatever she says comes from a heart that is devoted to God and is seeking him. As this year I am spending a lot of time reading about Biblical Womanhood, this was high on my list.One of the things I loved about this book is that it was from a mothe [...]


    8. Fairly narrow in scope as Elliot wrote this collection as a set of letters to her daughter when the latter was getting married. As such, most of the essays discuss womanhood in terms of the wife/mother relationship. Certain parts definitely feel dated (Elliot's citing of a statistic that 90% of women marry before 21, for example, as well as her tendency to set up "feminism" as a monolithic entity. [I found most of what she said about feminism fairly reactionary toward one *kind* of feminism, one [...]


    9. I am so grateful for this book in the strangest way possible, for without it I would never have begun to confront the strangle-hold sexism had in my life. I would never have struggled against the inevitable fate of becoming a good Christian woman, and later, a good Christian wife had I not found this collection, written by an esteemed, and "powerful" member of the female Christian population. Within this very anti-feminist work, full of essays on joyful submission, meekness, Holy marriage, and G [...]


    10. Everyone has a right to their opinion, but this attempt to tear down feminism and encourage women to be subservient.e from being offensive was entirely filled with contradictions, failed to properly support the belief and in fact in the end unintentionally strengthened feminism. She says women are better off subservient, but she proceeds to list "exceptions" to traditional families that worked and expressed how much she enjoyed traveling with a very free spirit. The more she gave examples, the m [...]


    11. So much wisdom to glean from this book. I would urge all young women to read this little book, a book which serves as an antidote against the falsehood of egalitarianism that is creeping in the church. Elliot is a clear example of how strong women can stand firm against this "serious distortion of truth."A few of my favorite quotes:"The life of faith is lived one day at a time, and it has to be lived -not always looked forward to as though the "real" living were around the next corner. It is for [...]


    12. Elliot's writing is lovely. Occasionally her arguments are simplistic, but although I personally struggle to accept the "traditional, conservative" Christian understanding of gender roles, I nevertheless find Elliot to be full of wisdom and truth. She may rub my feminist tendencies the wrong way, but she provides such a worthy text for wrestling with.



    13. This book is a delightful feast of wise and loving counsel. Full review coming soon. Thanks to Joy for giving me the opportunity to read this! :) <3


    14. This book of 49 short chapters is a collection of notes that Elisabeth Elliot wrote for her daughter on the meaning of womanhood. The notes were written in anticipation of her daughter’s impending marriage, so much of the advice centers on what makes a marriage successful, and the woman’s role in a marriage. This wasn’t quite what I was expecting, but I gleaned a variety of little nuggets of wisdom that are equally applicable in the life of an unmarried woman. Here is one such nugget: “N [...]


    15. "In order to learn what it means to be a woman, we must start with the One who made her.""Every creature of God is given something that could be called an inconvenience, I suppose, depending on one's perspective.  The elephant and the mouse might each complain about his size, the turtle about his shell, the bird about the weight of his wings.  The special gift and ability of each creature defines its special limitations.  And as the bird easily comes to terms with the necessity of bearing wi [...]


    16. This classic title on biblical womanhood holds a treasured place on my shelf, and its dog-eared pages are proof it has spent time off my shelf, as well. Written to her daughter, Valerie, this book is my favorite of Elliot’s amazing tomes. I highly recommend it to all women wanting to enter into a conversation with one of the spiritual giants of our age. Covering such broad topics as feminism and marriage, this book will be relevant to all Christian women, but I think it holds a special place i [...]


    17. Let Me Be A Woman is a little book with big impact! After having read Passion and Purity by Elisabeth Elliot (which was excellent), I was looking forward to reading this book. Set up in similar style, with short, easy-to-read chapters, Let Me Be A Woman discuses what it means to be a Christian woman, plus thoughts about marriage and similar topics that would benefit women of any age, married or unmarried.Definitely an impacting and inspiring book!



    18. While I personally may not have been quite at the point to where I could fully appreciate some of the advice and topics in this book (not having marriage in my near future- too young), it had a whole lot of wisdom! I also really liked the style of Elisabeth Elliot writing notes to her daughter. :) It was very readable, and the profound truths were given very honestly, boldly, and humbly.


    19. The book is short and succinct — but life changing. Elliot offers words of wisdom on the meaning of womanhood and shares that in order to learn who we are as women, we must start with the One Who made us.She unabashedly discusses marriage and singleness, submission to authority and the inherent differences between masculinity and femininity. In an age of feminism, this book is a beautiful reminder of the gift of sexuality, the gift of individuality and relationships. Men and women are not "equ [...]


    20. This is truly such a good book! It came to me to start reading it at the right time really, almost providentially I think, especially because in my tentative study of literature and culture I find so much feminism and crude defiance of the traditional, God-ordained callings of men and woman in life, marriage and the home, and this book was truly a refreshing draft of water, an uplifting and challenging reminder of the goodness and glorious beauty of God's perfect Design. It was made especially p [...]


    21. I read this one as a teen or young college student I believe, but it spoke to me on a much deeper level as a more "mature" woman :-) this time around. It's a collection of letters from Elisabeth Elliott to her daughter who just became engaged on marriage but also on womanhood. It's a mix of wisdom from Elisabeth's extraordinary life, principles from Scripture, many other scholars, and personal anecdotes. While it it may sound dry or boring, it's not. It is however, heavy reading if you take to h [...]


    22. via Carol to Mom Solid 3.5 stars. At first, I was LOVING it. Cape Cod, a godly woman, a precious mother-daughter relationship, AND a little Scottie named MacDuff. As the book progressed, the focus shifted to being a godly married woman, rather than a godly woman whatever your station in life. I understand that this is because Elliot wrote these letters to her daughter in the days leading up to her marriage. At first, I was thinking this would be a book I would get EVERYONE, but now I'm thinking [...]


    23. Here's a confession: I fully expected to HATE this book. I went into it all like "I'm a feminist, hear me roar!" and then was surprised by how much I actually didn't hate it after all. It's much more complementarian in nature than I would say I am, but every time I verged on thinking/feeling "uh wait, no, what about" she would address my exact thoughts in the next chapter. This isn't a book I 100% agree with or am on board with, but as far as books about womanhood (and especially about being a w [...]


    24. I'd like to try to read this book every year. Given the deluge of feminism and attempted dismantling of differences between men and women that we face today, this book is a refreshing spring breeze (with some punches of Elisabeth Elliot say-it-like-it-isms). Unquestionably helpful and rewarding for women who want to know more of the fullness of joy God intends for women. It's saturated with Scripture, spoken from a mother's heart, and possesses the tried and true wisdom of a widow and missionary [...]


    25. This book was excellent. I really enjoyed the writing style (letters to her daughter before she was to get married). The chapters were short and to the point. She really captured the true beauty of womanhood. I recommend this book to women both married and single. And call me crazy, but I think married men should read it as well (at least skim it). Elisabeth tells the real truth about being a woman and being a wife. Great book!


    26. A good read for any woman thinking about marriage. Elisabeth Elliot gives a very down-to-earth view on masculinity/femininity and what makes a marriage work. The only part that annoyed me was her repeated references to her opposition toward the feminist movement (I agree with her views, but I think she over-does it).


    27. Beautifully written, but a little erratic. This book was a compilation of letters written by Elisabeth to her daughter about womanhood. This book was very intimate and I gleaned some wisdom from its pages. There was a lot of repetition of principles, etc, but I think this would be a great read for a young woman aged 16-19. Great for a young woman's group or homeschooled young ladies.
