We are a busy people. We frantically move through our days with hardly a moment of true rest and reflection. It's hard to comprehend the thought of being still, of leaving our anxiety and worry and impatience in the capable hands of a loving God. But that's exactly what we are called to do.
Using the title of one of her favorite hymns as her unifying theme, beloved writer Elisabeth Elliot offers this inspiring collection of reflections on living the Christian life--a life that is far less about doing than it is about receiving grace, peace, and rest for our weary souls. With engaging stories from her rich personal experiences as a missionary, mother, wife, widow, radio host, and internationally known public speaker, Elliot shows you the beauty and wonder of resting in God.
