From the Back Cover
"The book you're holding tells a very moving love story. It's honest. It's practical. But even as it addresses the real questions and concerns of single men and women it always lifts our gaze upward--to the Maker who created us for Himself."--from the foreword by Joshua Harris, bestselling author of I Kissed Dating Goodbye
We know we need to commit daily to Christ all matters of the heart and to wait upon Him. But so often it is a painful, lonely process that takes longer than we want it to.
In her classic book, Passion and Purity, Elisabeth Elliot candidly shares with you her love story with Jim Elliot as evidence that she has been there. Through letters, diary entries, and memories, she shares the temptations, difficulties, victories, and sacrifices of two young people whose commitment to Christ took priority over their love for each other. These revealing personal glimpses, combined with relevant biblical teaching, will remind you that only by putting your human passion and desire through His fire can God purify your love.
Includes honest, biblical direction on these important matters of the heart
•loving passionately while remaining sexually pure
•whether or not to marry, and who is the right one
•the man's and woman's role in relationships
•putting God's desires ahead of personal desires
•how far is too far, physically
In a culture obsessed with dating, sex, and intimacy, the need for Elliot's freeing message is greater than ever.

I love Elisabeth Elliot's honesty with her struggles and feelings through-out her relationship with Jim Elliot. She points every struggle and doubt back to God, and uses a ton of Bible verses and other poems to encourage a godly mindset. I definitely recommend this for all ages of women, whether they're interested in dating, or are already married. Very inspiring!
