Author(s): Elisabeth Elliot
Very few books on dating have stood the test of time like Passion and Purity. Its much-needed message remains strong and hopeful in an age when doing whatever feels right is common practice. Using her own life as an example, Elisabeth Elliot guides singles of both genders and of any age on how to put their love lives under the authority of Jesus Christ. Passion and Purity covers dating issues such as: how to know which person is the right one to marry; loving passionately while remaining sexually pure; the mans and womans role in relationships; putting Gods desires ahead of personal desires; how far is too far, physically.
Elisabeth Elliot was born to missionary parents and served as a missionary in Ecudor.

Elisabeth continued her work among the Quichuas and later lived and worked among the Aucas. Today, she lives north of Boston, Massachusetts, with her husband, Lars Gren.
