What to Expect
A sort of sequel to Passion and Purity, this book combines the true stories of many different and diverse Christians as well as direct, biblical based wisdom from Elisabeth Elliot.
Short chapters with thought questions.
I really enjoyed this book. It shows that there is no formula and God is creative and merciful. The important thing for us is to hold Him as the center of our lives...and that means our relationships too.
We must pursue Him and His will in all areas of life!
From the Book
I wrote a lot of quotes down from this book over time, but I shall restrain myself. :-)
He always answers the cry of the man or woman who wills (against all wanting) to do His will. It is here that the battle is waged.
Maturity is the acceptance of limitations. Every choice made in life rules out a thousand possibilities. Love, in the last analysis, is a choice.
Fear God and nothing else.
Thanks for reading,
