Rest Awhile in a Quiet Place

When you long for a quiet refuge away from the noisy, frenetic circumstances of day-to-day commitments--where do you turn? If you're Elisabeth Elliot, acclaimed speaker and author of many best-selling books, you look to one place alone: to the embracing arms of our omnipotent and infinitely loving heavenly Father.

Keep a Quiet Heart is a unique collection culled from the lead articles featured in Mrs. Elliot's newsletter over the past several years. "Mostly they are about learnng to know God," the author says. "Nothing else comes close to being as important as that. It's what we are here for." Join Elisabeth as she points the way to a deeper, more fulfilling--and restful--walk with God. 


"Tough-minded, kind-hearted, common-sensical, no-nonsense simplicities about love and loss, pain and peace, faith and family are Elisabeth's specialty. The depth-charges on these themes that Keep a Quiet Heart contains are worth their weight in gold. Here is a book choc-a-bloc with wisdom in the raw. Read it slowly, praying as you go."--J. I. Packer, author of Rediscovering Holiness and Knowing God

"In Keep a Quiet Heart I find the growth of a soul. The stories are encouraging, the counsel is helpful, but most of all these straightforward essays show us the heart of Elisabeth Elliot. It is a gift for which we can all be thankful."--Richard J. Foster, author of Celebration of Discipline

"Keep a Quiet Heart challenges us to respond biblically to the reality of life and to our culture. I was immediately drawn to 'Interruptions, Delays, Inconveniences!' My copy will be readily available for the multitudes of times I need to be encouraged to keep a quiet heart."--Cynthia Heald, author of Becoming a Woman of Excellence
