Jim and Elisabeth Elliot’s only daughter shares never-before-published love letters between her missionary parents in a new book.
“My father and mother’s love was huge and deep because they were so committed to loving God first, that they felt that each of the other was a gift,” Valerie Elliot Shepard said. “I hope to carry on the legacy simply by telling the story.”
According to The Gospel Coalition, many of today’s believers may not know that these two legendary ministry leaders were single-mindedly devoted to pursuing God’s will for their young lives, certain their future callings would require them to sacrifice forever the blessings of marriage. Instead, they found their hearts intertwined.
