Summary

We know we need to commit daily to Christ all matters of the heart and to wait upon Him. But it is often a painful, lonely process that takes longer than we want it to.

In her classic book Passion and Purity, Elisabeth Elliot candidly shares with you her love story with Jim Elliot as evidence that she has been there. Through letters, diary entries, and memories, she shares the temptations, difficulties, victories, and sacrifices of two young people whose commitment to Christ took priority over their love for each other. These revealing personal glimpses, combined with relevant biblical teaching, will remind you that only by putting your human passion and desire through His fire can God purify your love. 

Passion and Purity includes honest, biblical direction on these important matters of the heart:

  • Loving passionately while remaining sexually pure.
  • Whether or not to marry, and who is the right one.
  • The man's and woman's role in relationships.
  • Putting God's desires ahead of personal desires.
  • How far is too far, physically.

In a culture obsessed with dating, sex, and intimacy, the need for Elliot's freeing message is greater than ever.

Passionless reader for a passion filled book.

I have listened to hundreds of audiobooks over the last five years. Credibility. Boom. I will start with the good. This is an amazing testament of true love. And true love waits. This book is riddled with the honest desires (sometimes to the point of discomfort) of Jim Elliot. Yet he speaks the full truth of what a man desires. Yes, even the intensely sexual desires that God has so beautifully given man. This is only one highlight of this wonderful tale of passion and purity. However, I must insist that you do not purchase THIS version. The narrator might seem alright on the sample, but in short time, her utterly robotic-like voice rips out nearly all the feelings from the emotion-filled moments. The intonation was frightful and her emphasis were placed so incorrectly that it was Unnerving. Several times I was nearly led to believe that Siri was monologuing the otherwise gorgeous and powerfully romantic accounts of Elisabeth Elliot. I am keeping an eye out for the name Tanya Eby (the narrator) so that I NEVER have to listen to her again. I would have much rather read it by paper; and I HATE reading paperback. In fact, it was such a good book, I will purchase the paperback and read it again just so it isn't undeservingly butchered by Tanya Eby. In conclusion: Excellent book, Beautiful story, AWFUL narration.

Amazing !!

This book really taught me to above all value and guard my purity and that God blesses those who wait on him for what he has for them. A man of God will value your purity and protect it at all costs. Don’t settle unless u know for sure that this is the man Jesus has for you.

Worth the listen

Practical, Truthful, Humble and Kind. These words describe EE and her story. Purity and Passion changed my perspective in ways I did not see coming.
