About this Item: Christian Literature Society for India, Madras, 1974. Soft Cover. Condition: Very Good. Re-issue. MADRAS : 1974. [ First Published in 1926 ]. Green and black printed covers; stapled. Bright, tight and clean. Ex College Library with stamp to title-page only. No internal markings. VERY GOOD. Scarce. 51pp. SUNDAR SINGH was born into an important landowning Sikh family in village Rampur (Punjab state) in northern India. Sikhism, founded about 1699 AD, is a religion that teaches belief in one God and rejects the caste system; it had become one of the established religions in the area, standing apart from both Hinduism and Islam. Sundar Singh's mother took him to sit at the feet of a sadhu, an ascetic holy man, who lived in the jungle some miles away, while also sending him to Ewing Christian High School, Ludhiana, in order to learn English. The death of Sundar Singh's mother, when he was fourteen, plunged him into violence and despair. He took out his anger on the missionaries, persecuted Christian converts, and ridiculed their faith. In final defiance of their religion, he bought a Bible and burned it page by page in his home while his friends watched. Three nights later, he took a bath before going to the railroad track to commit suicide. While he was bathing, Singh loudly asked who was the true God. If the true God didn't show Himself that night, he would commit suicide. Finally, that night before the break of dawn, Singh saw a vision of Christ with His pierced hands. 1889 - Born at Rampur, Punjab. 1903 - Conversion.1904 - Cast out from home. 1905 - Baptised in Simla; begins life as a sadhu. 1907 - Works in leprosy hospital at Sabathu. 1908 - First visit to Tibet. 1909 - Enters Divinity College, Lahore, to train for the ministry. 1911 - Hands back his preacher's license; returns to the sadhu's life. 1912 - Tours through north India and the Buddhist states of the Himalayas. 1918 to 1922 - Travels worldwide. 1923 - Turned back from Tibet. 1925 to 1927 - Quietly spends time writing. 1927 - Sets out for Tibet but returns due to illness. 1929 - Final attempt to reach Tibet. 1972 - Sadhu Sundar Singh Evangelical Association formed. 8vo. **Reduced shipping on this item.

About this Item: London; George Allen & Unwin: First English edition Abridged translation by Olive Wyon, 1927. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. 8vo., 277pp., original cloth gilt. A VG+ clean copy. Sadhu Sundar Singh was an Indian Christian missionary. He is believed to have died in the foothills of the Himalayas in 1929. Searching since boyhood for the way to God, Sundar Singh found truth in Jesus Christ. On his sixteenth birthday, he was publicly baptised as a Christian in the parish church in Simla, a town high in the Himalayan foothills. For some time previously he had been staying at the Christian Leprosy Home at Sabathu, not far from Simla, serving the leprosy patients there. It was to remain one of his most beloved bases and he returned there after his baptism. At sixteen, the former Sikh became a Christian Sadhu, or holy man, and at great risk devoted his life to Christ. With bare feet and few possessions, Sundar crossed the precarious Himalayas between India and Tibet many times, sharing the gospel with Hindus, Buddhists, Sikhs. As he traveled, Sundar constantly read the Bible, prayed, and meditated, confident that God was always with him, even in the face of death. Preaching in India, Europe, and as far away as America, this Indian saint impacted thousands with his quiet yet bold words and actions. Seller Inventory # 3603

About this Item: SCM Press, London, 1927. Hard Cover. Condition: Very Good. Frontispiece - Portrait (illustrator). Sixth Edition, Revised. FIRST SCM EDITION. LONDON : 1927. [ Revised with new preface.]. Hardback. Preface- letter by the Sadhu himself. Green cloth; gilt lettered spine. Bright, tight and clean. Neat owner name. No internal markings. Spine not faded; gilt dull. Minor wear only. VERY GOOD. Scarce. (xv), 222 pages. SUNDAR SINGH was born into an important landowning Sikh family in village Rampur (Punjab state) in northern India. Sikhism, founded about 1699 AD, is a religion that teaches belief in one God and rejects the caste system; it had become one of the established religions in the area, standing apart from both Hinduism and Islam. Sundar Singh's mother took him to sit at the feet of a sadhu, an ascetic holy man, who lived in the jungle some miles away, while also sending him to Ewing Christian High School, Ludhiana, in order to learn English. The death of Sundar Singh's mother, when he was fourteen, plunged him into violence and despair. He took out his anger on the missionaries, persecuted Christian converts, and ridiculed their faith. In final defiance of their religion, he bought a Bible and burned it page by page in his home while his friends watched. Three nights later, he took a bath before going to the railroad track to commit suicide. While he was bathing, Singh loudly asked who was the true God. If the true God didn't show Himself that night, he would commit suicide.
