it was amazing
bookshelves: read-in-2010

Probably the best book I'll read all year. I savored each chapter that told of the sacrificial and selfless life of Amy Carmichael, an Irish missionary. Amy spent 53 years, without furlough, ministering in India. Founding the Dohnavur Fellowship, a safe haven for children in moral and spiritual danger. Her obedience to the Lord and example of one who gave all for Him is truly inspiring. My own life and aspirations seem in shallow in comparison and my complaints and worries so petty. This book urged me to a call of greater discipleship and I was sorry when the chapters ran out and the book ended. Elisabeth Elliot did a wonderful job depicting Amy's life and ministry in this book.
