Passion and Purity by Elisabeth Elliot

30 May


As we were packing up books, Mom handed me a book and asked me if I wanted to read it. I looked at the cover, Passion and Purity. “Yeah, sure I’ll read it.” Needless to say, I finished it in one day. Very uncharacteristic of me. If you’re looking for a good book on purity and/or relationships, this one is excellent. I have read two other books, It’s (Not That) Complicated and Before You Meet Prince Charming Both were very good, and very helpful. However, the difference in Passion and Purity is that author Elisabeth Elliot is telling her own story. She explains some of the struggles she went through. Struggles like falling in love with a guy, but not knowing how he feels about you, waiting for the right guy, how do you know if he is the right guy, when you are in a relationship, how physical is too physical, etc. Struggles that most teenage girls, or even single women struggle with. So many purity books just give tips or dos and don’ts. It was wonderful to read one that went through her own story. And it was a beautiful story. I would highly recommend it.

I was not compensated for this review.
