From the Back Cover

Rest Awhile in a Quiet Place

When you long for a quiet refuge away from the noisy, frenetic circumstances of day-to-day commitments--where do you turn? If you're Elisabeth Elliot, acclaimed speaker and author of many best-selling books, you look to one place alone: to the embracing arms of our omnipotent and infinitely loving heavenly Father.

Keep a Quiet Heart is a unique collection culled from the lead articles featured in Mrs. Elliot's newsletter over the past several years. "Mostly they are about learnng to know God," the author says. "Nothing else comes close to being as important as that. It's what we are here for." Join Elisabeth as she points the way to a deeper, more fulfilling--and restful--walk with God.

Elizabeth Elliot has, not only a way with words, but a way of reaching a woman's heart. She lifted me up and encouraged me to become a woman that would please God with a quiet and gentle spirit.

Elisabeth Elliot holds true to her style of communicating God's Word with extraordinary practicality and love. The articles are small, (perfect for devotional reading) and packed with truth. Will give you lots to think and pray about during the day.

I found this book about 7 years ago and have continually turned to it for comfort. I have given it as a gift over a dozen times and each reciever has found the same comfort. Perfect for a friend who cannot seem to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Elisabeth Elliot's approach is one of no nonsense.
She tells it like it is, yet gives hope.

All I can say is that this is the single most influential book in my library that I have ever read, apart from the Bible itself. As I read this I was daily convicted, taught, comforted and showed the loving, peaceful character of God. I've read this book cover to cover once and now flip back through my favorite chapters each morning - I've marked well over half as favorites!

Like everyone else has said, the chapters are short and easy to read as a part of a morning devotional (that's what I did) but they pack a punch in very few words. I will caution you that a lot of Elliot's ideas seem "old-fashioned" at first, and if you aren't prepared for that I'd imagine you could be turned off by some of what she says. But I would challenge you to really compare what she says with what Scripture says and, though it might be difficult to swallow, especially chapters about a woman's role in the family, I think you will find that every word is backed up by sound Biblical Truth and understanding. And, if you're looking for encouragement as you struggle against the world's interpretation of what a woman should be like today, look no further! Elliot hits the nail on the head a hundred times over.

Seriously, do yourself a favor and buy this book. You will NOT regret it.

...I found these short Evangelical essays to be based in Biblical truths and geared toward the problems of human life and the human condition and, in some instances, prophetic messages about the particular evils of our time and society.
The little essays may be read as daily devotional pieces or, as I did, the book may be approached and read through in several settings.

An excellent book from Elisabeth Elliot! I wanted a book by a faithful, sound older woman. I was not disappointed. She has challenged my thinking and encouraged me with her "no-nonsense" perspectives and love for others, even with it being an easy read book. If you are feeling like you need some strengthening and want to gain a little insight into Elisabeth herself, this is a great devotional.

You will never be the same again after you read the keen insights of Elisabeth Elliot. She pinpoints areas in life that need better responses, and then shares just how to do that. A very encouraging, life-changing devotional.

This book is so great! It can be read a little at a time. The excerpts tie together but I read one or two a day and just reap what the Lord is showing me through them. This book has been very timely in my life and addresses issues from all points of life. From waiting on the Lord to working mothers and pretty much everything in between. I highly recommend this book and know many other women who feel the same! Get it!!
