One of the most renowned missionaries of recent years is Elisabeth Elliot, who moved to the remote jungles of Ecuador to bring the gospel to the Auca people. She remained there even after her husband Jim was killed by some Aucas. What inspires such selfless devotion to the gospel? One of Elisabeth's influences was Amy Carmichael, who had served as a missionary in India half a century earlier—she even wrote a well-known biography of Carmichael.
How many missionaries, through their writings and biographies, have inspired others to take up the call to bring the gospel to the nations? Surely the number is great. Few things prepare you for the joys and hardship of the mission field like reading about those who have been there before.
Even if you don't end up leaving your home as a full-time missionary, these biographies will inspire you to love Christ and preach the gospel wherever God has placed you. They'll encourage you also to bear up under sufferings, trusting the God who has all things in his hands.
