YWAM Publishing Amy Carmichael: Rescuer of Precious Gems

The Christian Heroes: Then & Now series chronicles the true stories of ordinary men and women whose trust in God accomplished extraordinary deeds for his kingdom and glory.

Driven by love and compassion, and sustained by faith and determination, Amy Carmichael defied the cruel barriers of India's caste system. The story of this young woman from Northern Ireland is a brilliant, sparkling example of God's love generously poured out to "the least of these among us."

For ages 10 and up.

Our lunchtime routine... grab the kids some food, sit down and pray, and open the Amy Carmichael book to the next chapter. Our hope was that we could introduce our children to ordinary people who lived out life in service to God in extraordinary ways (without the denominational slant that is found in so many "missions" books). These books are wonderful! They do such an excellent job of providing biographical facts woven into text that children can understand. One bummer was that this book discussed prostitution (not in great detail, but it was there nonetheless). Historically accurate, yes. Just something to be aware of when you are reading to younger children. We all walked away from this book marveling at Amy Carmiahael's faith . Great book!

This book doesn't even begin to cover all of Amy's valuable experiences and insights, but it is very interesting nonetheless. God used several of the stories in this book to challenged me.
