Books Reviews: Missionaries


Over the past year I’ve been blessed to read some wonderful books. Here’s a few that I’d love to share:

The Live Dead Journal 

My missionary aunt and uncle gave me this one as a graduation gift last spring, and it is incredible. The book is written by 30 missionaries (mostly from Africa and the Middle East) that share powerful stories and lessons learned.  It’s divided into 30 small chapters that are quick to read, and will leave you with much to ponder and put into action the rest of the day.

Keep a Quiet Heart–Elisabeth Elliot

There is so much wisdom and encouragement in this book. It inspired me. It challenged me. It showed me how much I have yet to learn about walking by faith. The chapters are short and easy to read, and cover a plethora of topics that are applicable to everyday life. Elisabeth Elliot is definitely one of my favorite authors, and I’m quite excited to read more of her books.

Living Waters–Brother Yun

Brother Yun is a preacher in China. He’s been imprisoned 31 times because of his faith in Messiah. He’s suffered more than I can ever image, and yet he shares the Gospel with greater strength because of it. Living Waters attacks the concept of nominal Christianity. It’s a call for believers to be disciples. It’s a powerful book that will ignite your heart for the Great Commission.

All these books are 5 stars

I’m so thankful for these precious souls who have allowed their heart and soul to be poured out on paper all for His glory.

What books have impacted your life this year?

“He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep
to gain that which he cannot lose.”
