When I saw that this book was published, I was quite excited. My favorite part of the book was the intro and the last chapter and epilogue. Written by their only child and daughter Valerie Elliot Shepherd, this book, published in 2019, looks at their love story: how they went from acquaintances to friends, to pen pals, to Elisabeth falling in love with a single man minded Jim, to Jim tryWow…this biographical look at the love story and Marriage of Jim Elliot and Elisabeth Howard Elliot was spellbinding, amazing, and inspiring! For one reason, it's a beautiful love story and for another, it's wonderfully and richly written.
It was raw and real and I felt like I was watching Jim and Elisabeth’s story all over again. I believe the exact same reason is why I gave this book 5 stars.This has been an incredible glimpse into the love story of the Elliots, witnessing their beautifully inspiring confidence in God’s plan for their lives, and their deep-seated eagerness to honor him every step of the way. My favorite read so far in 2020.Such an encouragement to me! by B&H Books We see their eagerness to poThis has been an incredible glimpse into the love story of the Elliots, witnessing their beautifully inspiring confidence in God’s plan for their lives, and their deep-seated eagerness to honor him every step of the way. We all know Jim and Elisabeth to be great heroes of the faith and of their desire to put Christ first in every aspect of their lives but in this book, we also catch a glimpse of the lesser-known and deeply personal struggles between the flesh and the Spirit.
I enjoyed it way better than Elisabeth Elliot’s autobiographical look on her own story, Passion and Purity! Welcome back.
reading this and found myself strongly disagreeing with a lot of the ways things were handled during their relationship.
I have always been an Elizabeth Elliott, so when I heard about this new publication, I bought it immediately. So, to have this treasure of a book, written and edited so wonderfully by their daughter is a true gift.I was surprised to see someone chose to give this book a one star review because they were disappointed to see Jim and Elisabeth Elliot weren't, after all, the immaculate example they once saw in them. We see confident trust in God alone. “If I could express my one hope for compiling this book,” Valerie Elliot Shephard writes of her book Devotedly, “my prayer is that these entries of theirs will call us to search faithfully for God in His word. Having read all of EE’s books and having heard her speak several times, I was the intended audience and appreThese are the letters between Jim & Elisabeth Elliot before their marriage in the 1950s. Through a wealth of letting writing, when no other form of communication was possible, we see patient waiting on God’s timing. When I saw that this book was published, I was quite excited. It was neat how their daughter mostly let their writings do the talking but also getting to hear her perspective and memories. Published This book brings so much more insight than any of Elizabeth's writing, with even more letters, journal entries, and lots and lots of pictures! This book brings so much more insight than any of Elizabeth's writing, with even more letters, journal entries, and lots and lots of pictures!Valerie Elliot Shepard wrote a new and in-depth look at her parents' love story, and let me just tell you, I was charmed! For some, this story might move a bit slow in parts, the quiet unfolding of two devoted lives coming together over a (relatively) long period of time. Reading about their struggles,growth, ultimate love for God and most of all their patient surrender. Devotedly: The Personal Letters and Love Story of Jim and Elisabeth Elliot gives readers a beautiful image of the sacrifice and reward one can experience as a result of living this way. This was a laborious and surprising read for me. Published date : 2019-02-01 . She choose to accept the Lord's timing, His way in this whole drama...”“The practice of saying "I love you" has become so commonplace and cheap that it has caused untold misery by dashing one's hopes and damaging one's heart if there is no determination to marry as a result.” What would it look like to lay down your feelings, attractions, and desires to live a life wholly surrendered to God? The book not only contains personal letters and journal entries of Jim Elisabeth Elliot compiled together by their daughter, Valerie Shepard, but lessons for us to learn and apply today as we steward our own relationships.
"Passion and Purity" gave us insight into their incredible love story, but this book reveals the deeper passions and struggles of two people who long for the will of the Lord while also desiring one another. If you don’t know who J&E are, the context wouldn’t make much sense, even though Valerie does give a bit of their full story. While thankful for their story and seeing God’s sovereignty in it, I struggled a lot (!!!!)
Their daughter, Valerie, put it together and added commentary.I have liked pretty much any Elisabeth Elliot (Gren) book I have read (I've read about three or four I think, but not the ones on marriage or relationships).
