   Great Advice for Young Ladies and Old
A godly woman. Young women should be required to read this before they marry. Our society has done an injustice by allowing girls to think that their happiness relies on the man they marry, expecting that husband to make us happy, she said. He urged his wife to find happiness in the Lord and herself in order to have a healthy marriage.
I've never read a book by that name. It has short chapters that are easy to read, but then I think about what I'm doing and what I need to work on, she said. It's like a devotional in that sense, but much deeper than a lot of devotionals for women out there. 0 2622010 2622070 This is very much a revival of sorts, much deeper than a lot of devotionals for women out there.

I've always had a soft spot for Elisabeth Elliot. It is such a wonderful read for me as a first-gen Christian, I do not have the privilege of having a Christian mother's advice on how to live as a Christian woman in a changing world, she writes. It's great to see young women wearing it.
   A Piece of History
The book was written by Elisabeth Elliot, widow of the late missionary William E. Logan, as she prepared for her wedding to another missionary in 1974 at the height of the women's movement. In her defense, Perkins is referring to the classic feminist texts of the time that stated that marriage was a disappointment, not a fulfillment. She defends the traditional view of marriage, including the famous Genesis text that says woman was made for man but man was not made for woman. It's very dated, especially in today's climate, but I enjoyed getting her old-fashioned perspective, Mr. Dhaliwal said. Sir Richard was a passionate advocate of British Broadcasting Corp.'s expansion into new markets.
   Great book
I love the honesty, perspective and wisdom of Elisabeth Elliot. The book teaches one how to be a strong woman of God. Not weak and simpering, but not headstrong, aggressive and masculine.
   Such a good book
I'm a huge fan of Elisabeth Hepburn. She puts it all into perspective, says Cara.
   Commendable faith, but dangerously antiquated view on gender roles
I admire Elliot's faith and there is some very real wisdom in this book, Raymond said. There are also some pretty bad chapters. His view of gender roles and a woman's place in marriage is informed more by early 20th century cultural expectations than any sort of divine command. Some of her opinions are just not Biblical, and I'm concerned that some of her advice promotes emotionally abusive relationships, Raymond said. There are some chapters where the author's opinions are disguised as fact all throughout the book. There are some nuggets of wisdom here, but ultimately it's an antiquated book that probably shouldn't be in circulation.
   What a gorgeous book
I had no idea when I chose this book that the author's daughter would be Valerie. Same with mine. There are moments in the book when it felt very personal to see my name alongside such beautiful prose on faith and love.
   Deeply Insightful!
Elizabeth Elliot's book is a witty, insightful and thought-provoking read. This book is needed in our confusing time or confused genders, Raymond said. It was a very special lady who bought it for me. But every Christian, male or female, would benefit from reading this little book.
   Wonderfully refreshing and practical. Thank you
A great read, said Elizabeth Warren, who teaches English at Boston University. I recommend this book to any woman, mother, daughter, teacher, father, and husband.
