Publisher's Description

Very few books on dating have stood the test of time like Passion and Purity. Its much-needed message remains strong and hopeful in an age when doing whatever "feels right" is common practice. Using her own life as an example, Elisabeth Elliot guides singles of both genders and of any age on how to put their love lives under the authority of Jesus Christ.
Passion and Purity covers dating issues such as:
•how to know which person is the right one to marry
•loving passionately while remaining sexually pure
•the man's and woman's role in relationships
•putting God's desires ahead of personal desires
•how far is too far, physically

This best-selling book now has a new cover, an updated interior design, and a foreword from popular author Joshua Harris. Quest for Love will be redesigned in a similar manner to help readers identify the books as a pair. While Passion and Purity shares the love story of Elisabeth and Jim, Quest for Love is a compilation of stories on how other men and women discovered love through God's direction. Together, these two remarkable books accentuate our need to commit daily to Christ all matters of the heart and to wait on his timing.

    I first came across this book when I was reading I Kissed Dating Goodbye by Joshua Harris. Harris quoted from Passion and Purity numerous times and I have been wanting to read it ever since.

    With all the books on relationships, even the Christian ones, I didn't have high hopes about it. But the moment I started reading Passion and Purity, I was challenged.

    The book is split into short, relevant topics with rather catchy titles. She writes about her experiences particularly with Jim and more importantly, her walk with the Lord. Of course, there are multiple Scriptures included which makes it all the more solid. Her honesty and straightforwardness about topics such as surrender, heartbreak, relationships is what sets it apart from other books. She doesn't offer a How To Succeed in relationships but rather, reminds us of surrendering and trusting this very fragile area in our Lord's hands.

    A friend of mine whom I lend the book to could not go through the book; she said Elisabeth's views were too radical. Perhaps there are others who would think so. But we are in fact called to be radical, set apart and this is exactly what Elisabeth exhorts us to be.

    As a whole, this book doesn't just touch on relationships but on living a life that honors God in every aspect. I am glad to say that this book got me started on spiritual journaling; it's been 3 years and I have not missed a day. I thank God for writers like Elisabeth Elliot who knows exactly what we need to know. A real treasure.

    Elisabeth Elliot is best known as the wife of martyred missionary Jim Elliot, as chronicled in her book, Through Gates of Splendor (1957). Christians are still awe struck by her unceasing ministry to the native people responsible for his death. While I have not yet read that work, an error I intend to correct, I have had the pleasure of reading her book Passion and Purity (1984). The subtitle Learning to Bring Your Love Life Under Christ's Control suggest an emotionless book of prescribed behavior to deal with Christian singleness. Passion and Purity is neither cold nor tactical. The strength of this book is that it is personal. At times it reads like great historical fiction as Mrs. Elliot answers the questions of modern single people by opening up the journals and letters of her youth and sharing her courtship with Jim. The Elliots courtship was intentional, Christ-centered, painful, beautiful and as humanly possible pure. This is not a how to book, but a why to book. The reality is we all know the mechanics of being pure, the challenge is holding onto our convictions in the face of ill-timed passion. I am grateful for the example of the Elliots.Elisabeth Elliot as an author proves herself to be wholly inspiring, convicting, and absolutely readable. Unwilling to part from her at this time, I have begun to read another of her many books. Single people and those who love single people should visit with Mrs. Elliot and her great God in this book.Review first posted at MattHallBlog.com
