"She [Elizabeth Prentiss] was born in Portland, Maine in 1818 and died in 1878, two months before her 60th birthday. When I was a child I learned her hymn, 'More Love to Thee, O Christ.' Her book Stepping Heavenward (purportedly a fictional woman's journal which we can hardly help suspecting is to some extent autobiographical) came into my hands only a few years ago. I was both instructed and delighted by it, and have strongly recommended it to many."'More Love to Thee' (The Life & Letters) reveals the character of a woman who loved God and earnestly sought to help others to love Him. 'Fortunately for us,' she wrote, 'our faith does not entitle us to heaven anymore than our stupidity shuts us out of it; when we get there it will be through Him who loved us.'" -Elisabeth Elliot in the preface
"Reading Christian biographies has had an immeasurable influence in my own life and spiritual growth. To be able to see the hand of God, guiding, correcting, and sustaining one who trusts Him has encouraged me to believe that true discipleship is possible not only for the great figures of the Bible but for us ordinary folks as well. More Love to Thee
reveals the character of a woman who loved God and earnestly sought to help others to love Him." - Elisabeth Elliot
"I am delighted about the publication of the rare volume of The Life & Letters of Elizabeth Prentiss. We greatly need more biographies of godly women, and this work is certainly in that category." - Iain Murray
