A Chance to Die
Be Inspired by a Woman Who Dared to Follow God
Amy Carmichael understood true discipleship and lived it out. At a very young age she felt called to the mission field, followed God’s guidance, and eventually went to India, where she would spend fifty–three years without furlough. While there, Amy founded the Dohnavur Fellowship, a refuge for children in moral danger—children who were orphaned or unwanted and sold to the temple. Amy became a mother for these children, and so they called her “Amma.”
Even today, Amy’s life of obedience and courage stands as a model for all Christians everywhere. We resonate with her desires and dreams, her faults and fears, her dedication and service.
A Chance to Die is the life story of Amy Carmichael. In this reverent biography, Elisabeth Elliot brings “Amma” to life, providing a compelling, unforgettable narrative that will provoke you to examine the depths of your own faith and encourage you to reaffirm your life and commitment to Christ.
