Elisabeth Elliot

Elisabeth Elliot’s inspirational accounts of her husband’s death as a missionary in Ecuador in the 1950s, Through the Gates of Splendor and Shadow of the Almighty, became evangelical staples. Elliot went on to write about faith and womanhood and hosted a Christian radio show. After years of suffering from dementia, she died in 2015 at age 88.
