Based on the title of one of her favorite hymns, Elisabeth Elliot offers a beautiful and inspiring collection of insightful reflections on living the Christian life. Drawing from her rich personal experiences as a missionary, a wife, a mother, a widow, and a speaker, Elliot illustrates biblical concepts such as hope, peace, and prayer with clarity and grace.
Falling into the ground and dying is not exactly the comfort one often expects, but the surprise of grace is infinitely unpredictable. This little volume is worth its weight in gold. Or, perhaps I should say, worth its weight in compost activator. My dad used to buy a small bottle of compost activator to encourage his compost pile to get on with its job of "dying." He had a beautiful yard of grass and flowers to show for his efforts in organic gardening. Be Still, My Soul is a little volume of soul activator of surprising potency bearing the weight of glory.
Each chapter has some kind of inspiration and truth to offer about our Heavenly Father's tender care and love.
I especially liked chapters 5 and 7. I find great comfort in knowing that while I will soon be divorced from a deceptive husband of 25 years that I'm never ever alone while raising my daughter. I will soon move from my support system here but I'll always be supported and loved by my Father in Heaven. Praise God!

Could not seem to get into Or maybe I just found it a difficult read at the time
