This book was just what I needed to read....I'm what many might call an "old maid" at 48, but read this book about 10 uears ago and it reminded me that God is in charge of bringing my mate to me..I do not need to be turning over every rock, or trying to gently or not so gently "influence" those who have caught my fancy. HE knows what is best for me...and I can count on him not only to bring him into my life, but also to speak clearly to him, too!! After all, I only want a man of God who listens and hears from God.
What if I never marry--will God take that desire away?
I have deep feelings for this guy, but he says I'm like a sister to him. What should I do?
Why should a man still be expected to initiate romance?
Isn't it okay to spend time together if we're just friends?
These are some of the many questions posed in letters to Elisabeth Elliot by readers of her best-selling book Passion and Purity.
In Quest for Love, the companion to Passion and Purity, Elisabeth shares many of these letters and responds to the writersí confusion and heartfelt needs with sound, biblical guidance. She dusts off ìantiquatedî concepts such as commitment, integrity, honor, and servanthood and applies them to dating and singleness today.
Intertwined with the questioning letters are hopeful stories of how men and women discovered love through Godís direction. As you read their honest revelations, youíll be able to ìdiscern the better wayî by discovering what happened when they put their love life under the authority of Jesus Christ.
Elisabeth Elliot is a popular speaker, radio teacher, and much-loved author of more than twenty-five books, including Passion and Purity, The Journals of Jim Elliot, and A Chance to Die. She and her husband, Lars Gren, live in Massachusetts.
