More Love to Thee
The Life and Letters of Elizabeth Prentiss

Her writings have deeply touched the heart strings of tens of thousands of women the world over. This edition of her life and letters has been reprinted with the prayerful hope that her example will induce many to imitate her faith in our times.
“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 and letters of Elizabeth Prentiss. We greatly need more biographies of godly women, and this work is certainly in that category.” — Iain Murray
