Lilias Trotter’s Biography

Friday, September 11th, 2015

You may not have heard of Lilias Trotter, but you know the hymn she inspired—“Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus.” After you read Lilias Trotter’s biography, A Passion for the Impossible, by Miriam Huffman Rockness, you’ll never hear that song without remembering Lilias and what she did. She left her life of privilege in England and her promising art career to settle in hostile Algeria. Dismissing her because she was a woman, the Algerian men accused her of being a British spy. But for the sake of the gospel, she never quit, no matter how many obstacles were in her path. You’ll marvel as you read about this woman’s passion for the impossible, her brilliantly gifted life, and the miraculous ways the Lord used her to share the gospel.
