        Amy Carmichael, was born in 1867 in the village of Millisle, Ireland, and gave herself unconditionally to Christ. She went first to Japan but was told she could not withstand the climate. Following a short term in Ceylon, presently Sri Lanka, she landed in India in 1895 and remained there without a single furlough until she died on January 18, 1951.

        Amy Carmichael (1867-1951) was a missionary and author who spent over fifty years of her life--without returning home--serving mainly low caste girls and boys in South India. Iain Murray's concise biography provides an enlightening and moving account of her remarkable life and love for her Saviour, as well as perceptively drawing lessons from it.

        In 1903 Amy Carmichael risked her missionary support and shocked the Christian community with the publication of her book Things As They Are. Unlike many before her, Amy refused to sugarcoat her experience as a missionary in India. She wanted her readers to get an accurate picture of the desperate plight of some of the Indian people as well as the tremendous challenges that missionaries were facing. However, Amy's most shocking revelation was the plight of the temple girls, who were doomed to a life of abuse as they were "married" to the gods of the land.

          Compiled by Bee Trehane, Fragments That Remain is a compilation of notes and letters left behind by Amy Carmichael, after her death in 1951. Drawing from her many years as a missionary in countries such as Japan and India, Carmichael has left us words of inspiration, encouragement and guidance. In Amy's own words: "If to all our Lord asks of us-obedience, confidence in His love, guidance, purposes-we answer instantly, Yes, Lord, then there is nothing to hinder Him from using for our relief and help those eternal forces that are at His command. Limitless power is ours to use if we only know how, and if there is nothing in us to prevent its flow."

          Amy Carmichael was born at Millisle, in County Down, Northern Ireland, on December 16, 1867. In 1895 opportunity to go to India presented itself. This she eagerly accepted, and never again returned to Britain. After a period of language study she began touring the villages of the Tirunelveli District, Tamil Nadu with a group of Indian Christian women. She and her companions made a big impact on the countryside with their teaching and experience. Then in 1901, a seven-year-old child, who had run away from a Hindu temple, was brought to Amy. This incident resulted in the discovery by patient enquiry and research, of the Devadasi system by which baby girls could be dedicated to Hindu temples to become "servants of gods." These Devadasis inevitably had to serve as cult prostitutes . Amy was convinced that God had brought these facts to light in order that she should rescue and make a home for children who for this, or any other reason, were in dangers of immoral exploitation.

          Amy Carmichael went to South India in 1895 and remained there without a break until she entered into Life in January 1951. A great woman who did a great work? The impression left by this book is rather that she was the servant of a great God. Illustrated.

          The child of an Indian village, from a Hindu family, heard one afternoon of a God who loved her, and she lived from then on under His influence. Read this remarkable story of the girl who was embraced by the love of God and overcame every kind of opposition and trouble.

          Amy Carmichael, admired writer and missionary, tells the story of Arulai Tara (Star of Grace), the sister of Mimosa. Arulai was given a notebook during a great illness and told to "write what you can of the coming of the call of the unseen Spring." This book reveals the importance of preparing ourselves for obedience to God's call in our lives; the beauty in remaining faithful in preparing the ground God has given us.
          In the words of St. John of the Cross, Plowed Under illuminates for the reader the importance of "[living] in the world as though there were in it but God and thy soul."

          In this volume are sensitive lessons from a walk with pain. Like Rose From Brier, it has not been written by the well for the ill, but by a fellow-toad under the harrow. ("The toad beneath the harrow knows exactly where each tooth-point goes"). However Gold by Moonlight is not for the ill only. It finds its way into many rooms of human need. It is for all who walk in difficult places or are caught under any sort of harrow.

          This little book seemed to set an utterly impossible standard. It was however, the same standard I found in the words of Jesus: If you want to be my disciple, you must give up right to yourself, take up the Cross, and follow.

          Amy Carmichael was the eldest daughter of a large Christ-centered family in Millisle, Ireland. She learned at an early age that "nothing is important but that which is eternal." This understanding proved to be a foundation for her service to the Lord among the mill workers of Ireland, the Japanese briefly, and in India where she began her ministry to children in 1895 and where she remained until her death in 1951. This volume contains 365 daily readings that will encourage your heart to love and serve the Lord.

          A little book about Calvary love in common life. Based on 1st Corinthians 13.

          Letters written originally to the Dohnavur Fellowship Invalid's League, but now shared with any ill who care to have this rose from our brier. 198 pages, softcover from Christian Literature Crusade.

          There are times when the heart seems to stuggle for words rich enough to give adequate praise, deep enough to touch pain and personal weakness, or broad enough to include all of life's experiences. Amy Carmichael's poetry is pure gift to us because God gave her such words. Jesus was present to her, through her body was in a "confining pit", her soul soared.
          568 poems titled and divided into seven headings: Worship, Petition, Surrender, Ministry, Wartime, Encouragement, and Youthful Thoughts. Introduction by Elisabeth Elliot.

          Amy Carmichael was always ready to gather what our Father is always ready to give. To her there were no problems which were not met by the promises found in the Word. "Thou openest Thine hand, they are filled with Good." In 1931 an accident confined this missionary almost entirely to her room for the remaining twenty years of her life Taught and led of God through these difficult circumstances, Amy shared in writing to her "family" these spiritual insights learned. In these pages you will find some of these truths that she gleaned where He so abundantly gave.

          For the last twenty years of her life, until her death in 1951, Amy Carmichael was confined to her room, in constant pain. During this time she kept in touch with colleagues and friends through a flood of personal letters in which she shared the riches of her spiritual experience, offering encouragement, hope, consolation and occasionally reproof. Never intended for publication, these letters, written for specific individuals on particular occasions, have a wider message which may now for the first time be shared by readers of these selected extracts.

          The Dohnavur Fellowhsip is a group of Indian and European men and women who work together in the South of India. Its friends wanted to know how it began and they asked for something that would link up the stories already written; the beads should be strung on some sort of cord, they said. Others asked for another kind of cord. "What holds you together?" they asked; and we answered "A gold cord." Then our publishers asked us for something; a religous document they called it. We knew that nothing so formal was likely to evolve, but one morning early, before the crush of the day, a quiet private word ended this ineffective unwillingness. And so, in scattered hours, the writing has been done, helped by the comradeship of the whole Fellowship, and the tireless patience of several who searched the dull typescript for slips, helped to correct the proofes, and made the index.

          Amy Carmichael voices the inner thoughts we all have that bring discouragement, doubt and fear, and then gives a Godly response that dispels these false ideas.

          His Thoughts Said...His Father Said... provides bite-sized, biblical answers to your unspoken questions about:

          • God's guidance
          • spiritual dryness

          • and more
          Real-world answers to the hard questions of life. Enter the refreshing water of Amy Carmichael's writing and let the Father wash your doubts and fears away. Read a short portion in a free moment or pore over its pages prayerfully for hours.
