Abstract:

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 discipline 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, combined with relevant biblical teaching, 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. - Back cover.
