When life gets too busy, too impersonal, and too much to handle, it's time to turn to God for some peace and quiet. "Keep a Quiet Heart" is a unique collection of some of Elisabeth's best work from her newsletter. More than 100 short passages offer a bit of relief from everyday life as they point the reader toward the everlasting love and peace of God.
"Tough-minded, kind-hearted, common-sensical, no-nonsense simplicities about love and loss, pain and peace, faith and family are Elisabeth's specialty. The depth-charges on these themes that Keep a Quiet Heart contains are worth their weight in gold. Here is a book choc-a-bloc with wisdom in the raw. Read it slowly, praying as you go."--J. I. Packer, author of Rediscovering Holiness and Knowing God"In Keep a Quiet Heart I find the growth of a soul. The stories are encouraging, the counsel is helpful, but most of all these straightforward essays show us the heart of Elisabeth Elliot. It is a gift for which we can all be thankful."--Richard J. Foster, author of Celebration of Discipline"Keep a Quiet Heart challenges us to respond biblically to the reality of life and to our culture. I was immediately drawn to 'Interruptions, Delays, Inconveniences!' My copy will be readily available for the multitudes of times I need to be encouraged to keep a quiet heart."--Cynthia Heald, author of Becoming a Woman of Excellence
