Summary

Amy Carmichael's (1867-1951) life was one of simple, determined obedience to God, regardless of the consequences. Her service in India is a vivid example of the impact one person who will fear God and nothing else can have. Driven by love, sustained by faith and determination, this young woman from Northern Ireland defied the cruel barriers of India's caste system.

Remarkable woman

This is a remarkable story about a truly remarkable woman. I strongly recommend it. My only criticism would be the frustrating frequent mispronunciation of Keswick throughout first part of the book.

Encouraging book!

What a wonderful testimony of a faithful servant of Christ! I listened to this audio book every time I had dishes to wash or work on the computer, and even on the sabbath as I watched the baby play in the grass! I have been encouraged and challenged by the life of Amy Carmichael! What a life she lives to God!y

Wonderful to read about missionaries from the past

I loved all the realism. Life in far off places wasn't Heaven on Earth. I like that the authors didn't candy coat the missionary work. It's not victory all the time on the mission field and the Benges' portray exactly that. I loved hearing about how Amy was so innovative by wearing the clothing of the culture she was ministering to. She didn't let well-meaning and ill-meaning people get her down. She dived into the culture and lived with the people she was reaching. They were not her servants, she was their servant. Well worth reading!

Great book, okay narration

The content of this book itself is great. Amy Carmichael served God and His children in remarkable ways that are inspiring to hear. It is eye-opening as well as encouraging. It gives glory to God. Even if you do not believe in Jesus, this book is still entertaining and a good biography of a woman who helped many, many people across the world. The narration was the only part that held me up a bit because it sounds like the narrator is reading it to a child. Otherwise, it is a solid read/listen.

Wonderful woman of God

This is a very simply written but profound book about a wonderful woman of God. I listened to it with my children and the authors did an excellent job of mentioning the heavy content without going into too much detail for little ears. We thoroughly enjoyed this book and highly recommend it.

Interesting, but not as good as some of the others

It was interesting at points, but it didn't grab my attention like some of the other books in the series. It seemed to have less memorable moments than most books I've listened to about missionaries. But if you want to learn the story behind who Amy Carmichael was, it will certainly accomplish that!
