Some of the essays in this book are very good, convicting, and thought provoking. Worth reading it.

The one that I found most interesting is entitled, "Housework and High-Flown Ideas." If you want to "know" the wonderful and loving Elisabeth Elliot "mad", read this one. In this essay she challenges, with poignant sarcasm, the new ideas (this book was published in 1976) of feminism and equality of roles between men and women that were finding their way into the church. Here are a few excerpts:

A wonderful little collection of essays on a wide range of topics by one of my heroes of the faith. Gracious and wise and sometimes delightfully sarcastic.

"We are indeed 'miserable offenders.' We have done and left undone. We are foolish and weak and blind and self-willed and men of little faith. We run here, we run there, we form committees and attend meetings and attack the church and its organization and its isolation and its useless machinery and its irrelevance and ineffectiveness. But all

I normally love Elisabeth Elliot's writing, but this one just seemed to lack the insight and sparkle of her later works. Or her earlier ones, for that matter.

This book was really good, and I think that I learned a lot from it. Mrs. Elliot talks about bits and pieces of her life, and her brief thoughts about various subjects, which were very refreshing!

From the Author's Web Site: My parents were missionaries in Belgium where I was born. When I was a few months old, we came to the U.S. and lived in Germantown, not far from Philadelphia, where my father became an editor of the Sunday School Times. Some of my contemporaries may remember the publication which was used by hundreds of churches for their weekly unified Sunday School teaching materials. ...more
