"Love means self-giving. Self-giving means sacrifice," Elisabeth Elliot observes in this award-winning classic. Published twenty years ago, Love Has a Price Tag still speaks powerfully to us today, as freshly as if it had been written only yesterday.
In this collection of essays, Elisabeth Elliot shows us what it means to live a life fully given to Christ. By depicting everyday encounters and events, she helps us to see meaning both in the mundane and the miraculous. From a hospital in Georgia to a mission station in the Andes, from a seminary in Massachusetts to a secluded house in Jamaica, Elisabeth Elliot introduces us to places and people where simple faith perceives the power of God in the stuff of everyday living.
Love Has a Price Tag offers a timeless spiritual perspective on the value of being a woman, wife, mother, and Christian.

Read information about the authorFrom the Author's Web Site: My parents were missionaries in Belgium where I was born. When I was a few months old, we came to the U.S. and lived in Germantown, not far from Philadelphia, where my father became an editor of the Sunday School Times. Some of my contemporaries may remember the publication which was used by hundreds of churches for their weekly unified Sunday School teaching materials.
Our family continued to live in Philadelphia and then in New Jersey until I left home to attend Wheaton College. By that time, the family had increased to four brothers and one sister. My studies in classical Greek would one day enable me to work in the area of unwritten languages to develop a form of writing.
A year after I went to Ecuador, Jim Elliot, whom I had met at Wheaton, also entered tribal areas with the Quichua Indians. In nineteen fifty three we were married in the city of Quito and continued our work together. Jim had always hoped to have the opportunity to enter the territory of an unreached tribe. The Aucas were in that category -- a fierce group whom no one had succeeded in meeting without being killed. After the discovery of their whereabouts, Jim and four other missionaries entered Auca territory. After a friendly contact with three of the tribe, they were speared to death.
Our daughter Valerie was 10 months old when Jim was killed. I continued working with the Quichua Indians when, through a remarkable providence, I met two Auca women who lived with me for one year. They were the key to my going in to live with the tribe that had killed the five missionaries. I remained there for two years.
After having worked for two years with the Aucas, I returned to the Quichua work and remained there until 1963 when Valerie and I returned to the U.S.
Since then, my life has been one of writing and speaking. It also included, in 1969, a marriage to Addison Leitch, professor of theology at Gordon Conwell Seminary in Massachusetts. He died in 1973. After his death I had two lodgers in my home. One of them married my daughter, the other one, Lars Gren, married me. Since then we have worked together.
