About this Item

In 1903 Amy Carmichael's book Things as They Are shocked many Englishmen an d Americans into taking a closer look at India. Unafraid of public criticis m, Amy Carmichael had revealed to the Western world the spiritual bondage o f India as well as the suffering of thousands under the supposedly "benign" religion of Hinduism. She raised a plea for the little children who were b eing sold into lives of shame as slaves in Hindu temples. 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 In dian dress. Amid Christians who considered manual labor dishonorable, she c heerfully settled down to doing her share of the work with the Dohnavur chi ldren. But the qualities of Amy Carmichael that will stand out to the reade r are her daring faith, her overcoming spirit, and her tender love for the children she sought to rescue. She was their beloved "Amma," or "Mother." H er family grew to almost a thousand children before her death in 1951. We hope that With Daring Faith will be a first step for our readers in discovering the wealth of insight and challenge that missionary biographies can offer. In Amy Carmichael's victories in India, we see the victory of the Lord Jesus Christ over the powers of darkness. Bookseller Inventory # RWARE0000014659

About this title

Synopsis:

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.
