Why does God allow suffering? How is suffering connected to spiritual vitality? Elisabeth Elliot is well acquainted with suffering and sorrow in her own life. Her first husband, missionary Jim Elliot, was killed by Auca Indians, yet Elisabeth Elliot later went as a missionary and lived with the very same tribe that killed her husband. In this tape series, Elisabeth Elliot deals with the question of why God allows suffering. In doing so, she lays out the true tests for spiritual vitality. As she explores the Christian principle of “life through death,” she shows the importance of these tests of spiritual vitality in suffering and spiritual growth.
Elisabeth Elliot has been one of America’s most admired Christian women for decades. She shares wisdom gleaned from her experiences as wife, mother, missionary, Bible translator, radio broadcaster, speaker, counselor, and bestselling author. For nearly thirteen years she ministered through her daily radio broadcast, “Gateway to Joy.” She now focuses on writing and speaking with help from her husband Lars Gren.
