Be inspired by a woman who dared to follow God
Amy Carmichael understood true discipleship and lived it out. At a very young age she felt called to the mission field, followed God's guidance, and eventually went to India, where she would spend fifty-three years without furlough. While there, Amy founded the Dohnavur Fellowship, a refuge for children in moral danger-children who were orphaned or unwanted and sold to the temple. Amy became a mother for these children, and so they called her "Amma."
Even today, Amy's life of obedience and courage stands as a model for all Christians everywhere. We resonate with her desires and dreams, her faults and fears, her dedication and service. For former missionary and author Elisabeth Elliot, Amy became a role model. "She was my first spiritual mother," writes Elliot. "She showed me the shape of godliness."
A CHANCE TO DIE is the life story of Amy Carmichael. In this reverent biography, Elisabeth Elliot brings "Amma" to life, providing a compelling, unforgettable narrative that will provoke you to examine the depths of your own faith and encourage you to reaffirm your life and commitment to Christ.
Elisabeth Elliot was born to missionary parents and served as a missionary in Ecudor. In 1953 she married Jim Elliott and together they began work on translating the New Testament into the language of the Quichua Indians. Ten months later, Jim was killed by the Auca Indians while attempting to take the Gospel to that primitive tribe. Elisabeth continued her work among the Quichuas and later lived and worked among the Aucas. Today, she lives north of Boston, Massachusetts, with her husband, Lars Gren. Elisabeth is the author of a number of books, including Shadow of the Almighty; Passion and Purity; A Path Through Suffering; The Shaping of a Christian Family and Keep a Quiet Heart.
