Unfolding Destinies - The Ongoing Story of the Auca Mission
by Olive Fleming Liefeld - $8
Olive Fleming Liefeld, widow of the missionary Peter Fleming, relates her version of the events already familiar to readers of Elisabeth Elliot's Through the Gates of Splendor. Olive describes details of the fateful trip in 1956 during which Pete, Jim Elliot, and three others were killed by Waorani Indians in Ecuador.
In 1989, Olive returned to Ecuador and met the Indians who were responsible for her husband's death. There she discovered previously unknown pieces of the puzzle and gained new insight into the events themselves. She came away with a deeper understanding of the ways God works in the lives and destinies of His people.
Hudson Taylor's Spiritual Secret
by Dr. & Mrs. Howard Taylor - $6
What empowered Hudson Taylor's ministry in China?
The answer is unfolded in these pages. Written by Taylor's son and daughter-in-law, it shows us a man with fierce faith who believed that God truly would fulfill all He promises in Scripture.
For Christians longing for the inward joy and power that Hudson Taylor had, they can find the secret to it here. The secret, it turns out, is available to any who call on Christ's name.
"An easy, non-self-denying life will never be one of power," Taylor said. "Fruit-bearing involves cross-bearing. There are not two Christs—an easygoing one for easygoing Christians, and a suffering, toiling one for exceptional believers. There is only one Christ. Are you willing to abide in Him, and thus to bear much fruit?"
Amy Carmichael - 'Beauty for Ashes'
by Iain H. Murray - $8
Amy Carmichael (1867-1951) was a missionary and author who spent over fifty years of her life -- without returning home -- serving mainly low caste girls and boys in South India. Iain Murray's concise biography provides an enlightening and moving account of her remarkable life and love for her Saviour, as well as perceptively drawing lessons from it.
The Story of John G. Paton or Thirty Years as a Missionary Among South Sea Island Cannibal Tribes
by John G. Paton - $12
John G. Paton's thrilling autobiography relates a life spent as a missionary among the cannibal peoples of the South Sea Islands, and the education and development he helped bring to those remote isles.
The Triumph of John and Betty Stam
by Mrs. Howard Taylor - $12
The deaths of John and Betty Stam at the hands of communist soldiers and the “miraculous” survival of their daughter, Helen Priscilla, have been documented in multiple books, articles, blogs, and testimonies over the decades, becoming something of twentieth-century American evangelical missionary lore. Much like Jim Elliot and the “Auca Incident” twenty years later, the Stams’ deaths shocked American Fundamentalists, heightening anxiety over the spread of global communism and inspiring a new generation of missions efforts.
Peace Child - An Unforgettable Story of Primitive Jungle Treachery in the 20th Century
by Don Richardson - $10
In 1962, Don and Carol Richardson risked their lives to share the gospel with the Sawi people of New Guinea. Peace Child tells their unforgettable story of living among these headhunters and cannibals, who valued treachery through fattening victims with friendship before the slaughter. God gave Don and Carol the key to the Sawi hearts via a redemptive analogy from their own mythology. The "peace child" became the secret to unlocking a value system that had existed through generations. This analogy became a stepping-stone by which the gospel came into the Sawi culture and started both a spiritual and a social revolution from within. With an epilogue updating how the gospel has impacted the Sawi people, this missionary classic will inspire a new generation of readers who need to hear this remarkable story and the lessons it teaches us about communicating Christ in a meaningful way to those around us.
Shadow of the Almighty
by Elisabeth Elliott - $10
In 1956, five courageous young missionaries were brutally speared to death in the Ecuadorian jungle by those they hoped to befriend. The compelling story of their ultimate sacrifice has been powerfully portrayed in countless books and movies in the decades since their martyrdom.
But the measure of a life is greater than one event, and Shadow of the Almighty serves as a riveting chronicle of ow one of those young men, Jim Elliot, passionately threw himself into a life of faith, creating in his twenty-eight short years a legacy that continues to ripple through countless lives.
The following books will not be available at the book table. If you are interested in these books, we recommend purchasing them online.
To the Golden Shore: The Life of Adoniram Judson by Courtney Anderson
On February 12, 1812, Ann and Adoniram Judson sailed from Salem aboard the brig Caravan as two of the first missionaries to go out from North America. Watching the shoreline disappear from view, they could not have foreseen the impact of their journey on the future of the Christian world mission or on the thousands of men and women who would follow in their footsteps. After a short stay in India, they carried the Good News of Jesus Christ to the golden shore of Burma.
Drawing on letters and church records, Courtney Anderson paints a poignant portrait of Judson’s early life in dealing with the conflict between his desire for material success and the inner call to serve God. For Adoniram Judson the golden shore brought bitter hardships, imprisonment, and family tragedy. Yet, he never wavered in his commitment to win people to faith in Christ and to translate the Bible into the Burmese language.
Faithful Witness: The Life and Mission of William Carey by Timothy George
Now known as the father of modern missions, William Carey proved by example that missions work was possible. His zeal convinced people missions work was essential, and generations of missionaries followed in his footsteps. Shoemaker, botanist, translator, preacher, factory manager--William Carey was all those things and more. Most importantly, he was a faithful witness to the gospel of Jesus Christ amidst a life of personal grief, professional ridicule, and international strife.
The Lord has chosen to richly bless our ministry through the avenue of missions, and we look forward to the things that God is going to do in the hearts and lives of people around the world!
