Winner of the C.S. Lewis Gold Medal for Outstanding Christian Juvenile Literature.

Like Anne of Green Gables, Amy Carmichael was known in her childhood for meaning well but getting into all kinds of trouble. She carried this indomitable spirit with her onto the mission field as she worked to rescue little girls from a life of depravity in the heathen temples. With Daring Faith tells missionary stories focusing on Amy's own childhood, the children she rescued, and her ministry of bringing the gospel to India.

Never content to do things man's way when the Lord was showing her a better way, Amy Carmichael was one of the first missionaries in India to adopt Indian dress. Amid Christians who considered manual labor dishonorable, she cheerfully settled down to doing her share of the work with the Dohnavur children. But the qualities of Amy Carmichael that will stand out to the reader are her daring faith, her overcoming spirit, and her tender love for the children she sought to rescue.  Her family grew to almost a thousand children before her death in 1951.

 In Amy Carmichael's victories in India, we see the victory of the Lord Jesus Christ over the powers of darkness.
