Overview

"What if I never marry-will God take that desire away?"
"I have deep feelings for this guy, but he says I'm like a sister to him. What should I do?"
"Why should a man still be expected to initiate romance?"
"Isn't it okay to spend time together if we're just friends?"

These are some of the many questions posed in letters to Elisabeth Elliot by readers of her best-selling book Passion and Purity.

In Quest for Love, the companion to Passion and Purity, Elisabeth shares many of these letters and responds to the writers' confusion and heartfelt needs with sound, biblical guidance. She dusts off "antiquated" concepts such as commitment, integrity, honor, and servanthood and applies them to dating and singleness today.

Intertwined with the questioning letters are hopeful stories of how men and women discovered love through God's direction. As you read their honest revelations, you'll be able to discern the better way by discovering what happened when they put their love life under the authority of Jesus Christ.

    Life Changing

    I've read this book a total of three times and each time it ministers to me differently. Married now, I can look back compare between mistakes and reading this book. Reading this book was the best thing God could have ever led my singles leader to to give me. While Elliot's approach may appear to sound 'ancient' and 'old fashioned' it stood as a guideline and an honest perspective of what it is to be single and wait in the Lord. When I first read this book, it was the most crucial point in my life. I can't imagine the choices I would have made had God not spoke to me through what other might consider 'old fashioned' views. I am ever thankful unto the Lord for using this book to change my life as a Single For Christ. I pray it does the same for you. God Bless!
