Now releasing with a fresh cover, On Asking God Why is a perceptive collection of Elisabeth Elliot's own meditations that confront the many issues we must deal with in our daily lives, from the ordinary occurrence of another birthday to serious topics like funerals, abortion, and divorce.

I have deep feelings for this guy, but he says I'm like a sister to him. What should I do?" "Why should a man still be expected to initiate romance?" "Isn't it okay to spend time together if we're just friends?" "If I never marry, will God take that desire away?" These are some of the many questions posed in letters to Elisabeth Elliot by readers of her bestselling book Passion and Purity. In this beautifully repackaged edition of Quest for Love, she responds with sound, biblical guidance, dusting off "antiquated" concepts such as commitment, integrity, honor, and servanthood, and showing how they still apply to dating and singleness today. Intertwined are hopeful true stories of discovering love through God's direction.

In one of her most personal books, Elisabeth Elliot shares her own perceptions on the meanings of the events in her turbulent life, including the death of her first husband at the hands of the Auca Indians of South America and the cancer that widowed her for the second time. Undeterred by grief and hardship, Elliot lived a productive life as a mother, missionary, author, and Christian intellectual. The themes of this collection touch on her both her life experiences and the overarching Christian values of overcoming difficulties, taking responsibility, exercising discipline, and the redeeming grace of God which, in spite of trouble, gives us our life, calls us to labor, and grants us our salvation.

Background In early 1956 Christian missionaries Roger Youderian, Nate Saint, Pete Fleming, Ed McCully, and Jim Elliot lost their lives on "Palm Beach" on the banks of the Curaray River in a steamy jungle in Ecuador. They were brutally killed by an unreached tribe they had worked long and hard to reach with God's love. Many thousands of individuals have come to know Christ in a personal and living way and thousands of others have altered the direction of their lives as a result of the shocking massacre and the many articles and books written about it. Even the Auca Indians who thrust those fatal spears have seen a significant portion of their number come to know Jesus Christ. Content This unique book contains transcripts of four messages given by Jim Elliot before leaving for the mission field. The first two messages are hard-hitting straightforward talks to seventh and eighth-grade students. The first is about "Spiritual Desire" including its nature and how to increase it. The second discusses "The Effects of Sin in a Christian." The third message, entitled "Peter," is an exposition of 1 Peter 1:3. The fourth, "God's Prophet," traces the concept and role of a prophet with the primary focus being Jesus Christ, the Father's ultimate Prophet. Robert Lloyd Russell grew up in the same local church as Jim Elliot and was a friend of the Elliot family for many years. Jim was one of his childhood Sunday School teachers and there was a period of several weeks when Russell and his parents and siblings lived with the Elliots in their home. One of Jim's brothers, "Dr. Bob," officiated at Mr. Russell's wedding.
