Better Than We Dreamed : The Story of Elaine Townsend Paperback / softback

Part of the Biography series


Read the story of a life lived safely within the lines, that God turned upside down.

From social star of 1930's Chicago to a Wycliffe missionary in South America and the USSR,Elaine Townsend's life was far from boring.

Meet the woman who became Cameron Townsend's wife, and discover how a life can be filled with adventure, by simply saying `yes' to God. Through each stage of Elaine's life her trust and dependence on her Saviour shines as an example to believers everywhere, yet there are also weaknesses with which we can all identify.

This account of her struggles and successes is filled with stories gathered from those who knew Elaine best, as well as insights into the mission work that renewed a generation's passion for Bible translation.

Both encouraging and challenging, this thorough biography leads the reader to rightly recognise Elaine Townsend as one of the great Christian women of the 20th century - a demonstration of what God can do with a willing heart.
