Amy Carmichael: Beauty for Ashes (Iain Murray)

$13.00 $11.50

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.

“This is a love story of the noblest kind. It is an enriching consideration of a woman’s relentless love for her Savior, her Bible, her friends, and most uniquely, her love for lost, suffering and desperate sinners – to whom she gave her life. Such devotion as hers seems so distant. Reading this brief history will confront and help to close that distance.”
— John MacArthur, Pastor, Grace Community Church, Sun Valley, CA

“Iain Murray has written a superb account of this remarkable woman’s life . . . He has read her books and her poetry, and what he writes reveals a keen understanding of the motives and undertakings of an extraordinary woman. It warmed my heart and informed my mind . . . I cannot too enthusiastically recommend this book.”

About Amy Carmichael

Amy Carmichael was born in Northern Ireland in 1867 with a Presbyterian heritage. Early on in life she was touched by biblical teaching calling for wholehearted dedication to God and his Word. The annual Keswick Convention and the influence of people she met through that movement was part of this process. Her life is a narrative of love for her Lord, compassion for human suffering, and a willingness to sacrifice herself to whatever work God gave her to do. The abhorrent traditional religious practices that she saw in India caused her to be tireless in saving women and children both physically and spiritually, and to set about developing a remarkable place of refuge in Dohnavur. The work of the Dohnavur Fellowship continues to this day.
