Amy Carmichael : a life abandoned to God by Sam Wellman( Book )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For Amy Carmichael, the road to Dohnavur, India, was paved with many memories. The sight of the poor old woman struggling with a heavy bundle in Northern Ireland, the foggy church hall in England where the hand of God seemed to rest on her, and the clear picture of Jesus praying in the garden, and then offering himself as the ultimate sacrifice. Surely if Jesus could give everything he had, she could do no less. And so in 1895, Amy Carmichael embraced an unusual mission, one that would last for the remaining fifty-six years of her life. The Dohnavur Fellowship would become, under her loving guidance, a place of sanctuary for more than one thousand children who would otherwise have faced a bleak future. Amy Carmichael's service for God also extended to the printed page, as she wrote nearly three dozen Christian books. Her life was characterized by obedience, total commitment, and selflessness, and serves as an example to Christians today. Those the world regarded as less than lovely, Amy Carmichael saw with the eyes of God and gave her life for them. - Back cover
