A Chance to Die: The Life and Legacy of Amy Carmichael

$21.99

Paperback
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.

Incredible challenging biography
5 stars By Rachael, Oct 22 2012
I have been a fan of both Elisabeth Elliot and Amy Charmichel for many years - and reading Amy's story penned by Elisabeth is just wonderful! 
Where to start... 
Journey the life of Amy Charmichel, from a young girl to her later years, I was challenged by Amy's sacrifice and abandon to our Lord, as she served Him with the abandoned, enslaved and orphaned children of India. 
Amy's is a beautiful life, and excerpts from her journals and letters reveal how authentic her heart for God and for people was. 
Highly recommended for young women - really, all women alike!
