Jim Elliots Apostolic Team

Before you go to John Piper´s article here are a few of my thoughts.
The martyrdom of Jim Elliot and his valiant apostolic team was one of the most important missiological demonstrations on how to reach tribes, peoples nations and tongues. It was prayed through, it was well planned, it was carefully executed. And they still died! A failure right? No, it was a tragedy in human terms but a great triumph of faith as we have seen through countless testimonies over the years.

The modern soft and potbellied church urgently needs to develop a theology of suffering and martyrdom! Maybe this article by John Piper will help us move in that direction. Go to John Piper´s article…
