"Isn't it okay to spend time together if we're just friends?"
"If I never marry, will God take that desire away?"
These are some of the many questions posed in letters to Elisabeth Elliot by readers of her bestselling book Passion and Purity. In this beautifully repackaged edition of Quest for Love, she responds with sound, biblical guidance, dusting off "antiquated" concepts such as commitment, integrity, honor, and servanthood, and showing how they still apply to dating and singleness today. Intertwined are hopeful true stories of discovering love through God's direction.
Elisabeth Elliot was born to missionary parents and served as a missionary in Ecudor. In 1953 she married Jim Elliott and together they began work on translating the New Testament into the language of the Quichua Indians. Ten months later, Jim was killed by the Auca Indians while attempting to take the Gospel to that primitive tribe. Elisabeth continued her work among the Quichuas and later lived and worked among the Aucas. Today, she lives north of Boston, Massachusetts, with her husband, Lars Gren. Elisabeth is the author of a number of books, including Shadow of the Almighty; Passion and Purity; A Path Through Suffering; The Shaping of a Christian Family and Keep a Quiet Heart.
