"How did you handle the impatience of wanting to be with the man you loved?" "What is our role as single women--waiting around?" "How shall I know if this woman is right for me?' These and many more questions are asked of Elisabeth Elliot in response to her books and seminar appearances. In Passion and Purity, she emphasizes the need to commit daily to Christ all matters of the heart and to wait upon Him. She teaches this often-painful, yet rewarding dicipline by candidly tracing her love story with Jim Elliot to "serve as evidence that I've been there." Through letters, diary entries, and recollections, she shares the temptations, difficulties, victories, and sacrifices of two young people whose commitment to Christ takes priority over their love for each other. These revealing personal glimpses may help to remind you that only by putting your human passion and desire through His fire can God purify your love. Passion and Purity gives direction in such areas as: - Singleness or marriage - putting God's desires ahead of personal desires - what men look for in a woman - virginity and chastity - the man's and woman's role in relationships - dating

Helpful Book
4 stars By Rachel, Dec 09 2014
Elizabeth Elliot is always a fantastic writer, speaking with truth and grace. Unlike other books about purity which often include stories of regret, Elizabeth simply shares her own journey and the things that she learnt in the lead up to her marriage to Jim Elliot. Written with honesty and vulnerability, looking honestly at the struggles, this is a fantastic book for anyone trying to find the balance between passion and a pure heart before the Lord.

A must-buy book
5 stars By Alison, Feb 27 2013
If I had a lot of money I would arrange for this book to be given to each and every Christian girl as they reach their mid to late teens, and into their twenties.  This is rich wisdom written from a deeply personal experience.  Elizabeth Elliot is a woman who speaks words that change lives.  From her own experience of bringing her love life under the Lordship of Jesus she shares what it means to trust God with our hearts and our future and our choices and our longings and our pain.  So much can be learnt from what is in this book for the whole of life, not just relationships.  What makes this even more precious is that, after waiting seven years to marry the man she loved (Jim Elliot), a mere couple of years after they married Jim was martyred in South America.  You will not regret reading this book whatever stage of life you are at - but it is particularly helpful for young women (and men) who are serious about trusting God with their future.
