Book Review- Passion and Purity

I am not good at finishing books quickly, but I'm glad that I kept coming back to this one. I started it last year and would read a couple of chapters at a time before it would it sit next to my bed and be forgotten about for some time. Then I would get lonely or confused and pick it back up again, and it would always have the perfect words for what I needed to be reminded of right then. Whether you are a guy or a girl, single or married there is something to be learned in this book. As a single girl this book met me right where I was, encouraged patience, putting God first and others second in how I approach relationships and made me reexamine what purity is at its core and what actions I want to take to keep my mind, body and soul pure for whatever God has in store for me. It was convicting and encouraging, and I highly recommend it. Elisabeth Elliot tells the story of how she and her husband, Jim, waited an agonizing amount of time before they could have each other. They both had to bend their wills and desires to the Lord and find satisfaction in Him before He allowed them to be together.
