Elisabeth Eliot was a unique treasure. In an age of Evangelical compromises with feminism, she stood alone in the manner in which she defended the dignity and privilege of being a woman. In that, she reminds me of Alice von Hildebrand, which is high praise in my book.
But she has left us now. She began to leave us some years ago as she slowly succumbed to advancing dementia. She recently suffered a series of strokes and died in her sleep this morning.
Her gain, our loss.
Here is World’s obituary.
