Elizabeth Elliot

What the book is about:

In her classic book, Elisabeth Elliot candidly shares her love story with Jim Elliot through letters, diary entries, and memories. She is honest about the temptations, difficulties, victories, and sacrifices of two young people whose commitment to Christ took priority over their love for each other. These revealing personal glimpses, combined with relevant biblical teaching, will remind readers that only by putting their human passion and desire through His fire can God purify their love.

Why I like it:

I know I’ve already told you about Let Me Be A Woman by Elizabeth Elliot, and that is my very favorite of hers. But so often we want dating books for young women, and this still scores as one of the best ones available.

Honestly, being raised in the Kiss Dating Goodbye era (I’m not a fan), it is a turn-off to me that Joshua Harris wrote the foreword of the reprinting. BUT, the content inside is still the same and it is goooooood. There is memoir type writing- the love story that unfolds is so so sweet- sprinkled with nuggets of legit wisdom that is timeless when it comes to relationships with men. If you only picked one “dating advice” book (though that is a TERRIBLE descriptor in this case), this would be the one.
