Five Fall Favorites // Missionary Biographies

Rebekah over at Read Another Page has been hosting a blog party. It's been great hearing of so many new book recommendations. I thought I would post my top five favorite missionary biographies. In no particular orders. 

In the Shadow of the Almighty

This book focuses on the life of missoinary Jim Elliot, who gave his life for the Auca people. 

Through Gates of Splendor

While the aforementioned book focuses on Jim Elliot, this book focuses on all the missionaries who died with Jim Elliot and their work with the Auca's. 

The Triumph of John and Betty Stam

This is the story of a missionary couple who gave their lives in China. 

Missionary Heroism

This book is a compilation of stories about missionaries.

Behind the Ranges

This is the story of another missionary who worked in China.

I hesitate to read any books about Jim Elliot just because it's a hard story! But thank you for sharing! Wasn't the book party fun??!!

Yes, the story about Jim Elliot is a hard story, but for me, also one of a challenge to press on.

Yes, it was very fun. =)
