Publisher Description

Amy Carmichael (1867-1951) served in India for over 50 years and is well-known for her work rescuing children from temple prostitution as well as her inspirational missionary writings.

This collection contains 13 of her earliest (and rarest) writings, in chronological order. All have been spell-checked and formatted for your eReader and are beautifully illustrated. You will be encouraged, challenged and inspired as you read of the impact and legacy that Amy Carmichael and her team had in India, rescuing little children and sharing the love of Jesus.

Included in this collection are the complete texts of:

1. FROM SUNRISE LAND (1895) - Amy Carmichael's first book, an intriguing look at her early missionary life in Japan and the many trials she faced. Includes lovely illustrations and many of Amy's own drawings.

2. FROM THE FIGHT (1900). Amy's first book from India, highlighting some of her earliest efforts in missions work in South India. (5 chapters)

3. THINGS AS THEY ARE: Missionary Work in South India (1903). One of her most well known and controversial books, it is a look at Amy's daily life in her work in South India, especially that of rescuing young children from temple prostitution (aka: "being married to the gods"). It was so shocking that many didn't believe what she'd written when it was first published, so this edition contains a number of letters from other missionaries confirming the truth of what Amy wrote. (32 chapters and dozens of illustrations)

4. OVERWEIGHTS OF JOY (1906). A sequel to Things As They Are, it continues the story of Amy’s missions work, honestly sharing its joys and struggles. (36 chapters, illustrated).

5. THE BEGINNING OF A STORY - very RARE booklet, taken out of print by Amy Carmichael as she felt it went against principles of walking by faith! Explains how Amy began to be involved in rescuing temple girls.

6. LOTUS BUDS (1909). A touching look at many of the precious children that Amy and her companions saved out of temple prostitution. (36 chapters, illustrated).

7. THE CONTINUATION OF A STORY (1914) - continues the story of Amy Carmichael's early ministry to temple children.

8. WALKER OF TINNEVELLY (1916) was a missionary and fiery revival preacher in India. He went to South India with the CMS (Church Missionary Society) in Tirrunevelly (South India) from 1885 until his death in 1912. He was a powerful preacher and helped form many evangelistic traveling groups. While he faced much opposition from Hindus he also saw sparks of revival, especially in 1905-1906. He was a mentor and teacher to Amy Carmichael and encouraged her in her work among temple girls and women. (39 chapters, illustrated).

9. MADE IN THE PANS (1917) - dozens of poems and songs written by Amy

10. PONNAMAL: Her Story (1918). The touching story of one of Amy’s faithful helpers in her mission. (17 chapters)

11. FROM THE FOREST (1920) - thoughts and musings written from the forest home Amy bought for the children in Dohnavur

12. NOR SCRIP (1922) - a book detailing the many answers to prayer that Amy and her team saw. (Similar to some of George Muller's experiences of answers to prayer, especially in regards to financial needs).

13. RAGLAND, PIONEER (1922). Documents the life and ministry of Thomas Ragland, an early missionary to South India who paved the way for the work of Amy and her team. (27 chapters).
