The sequel to her famous book Passion and Purity, this volume is compiled of Mrs. Elliot’s responses to letters requesting her to further amplify the lessons of her first book. Stories of some who wisely followed her counsels and stories of some who did not are both contained here for our instruction and warning.
"What if I never marry–will God then take that desire away?"
"I have deep feelings for this guy, but he says I am like a sister to him. What should I do?"
"Why should a man still be expected to initiate romance?"
These are just a few of the questions posed in letters to Elisabeth Elliot by readers of her best-selling book Passion and Purity.
In Quest for Love, Elliot shares many of these letters and responds to the writers' heartfelt needs and confusion with sound, biblical guidance. With warmth and humor, she dusts off "antiquated" concepts such as commitment, integrity, honor, and servanthood, and then applies them to dating and singleness today.
Quest for Love is brimming with true stories about how men and women find each other. "The universal quest for love has always had its difficulties," the author writes. "At present it seems to have become a minefield–a very dangerous place through which, in order to thread one's way safely, one needs a guide." Elisabeth Elliot is that sage, emphatic guide.
