In 1903 Amy Carmichael's book Things as They Are shocked many Englishmen an d Americans into taking a closer look at India. Unafraid of public criticis m, Amy Carmichael had revealed to the Western world the spiritual bondage o f India as well as the suffering of thousands under the supposedly "benign" religion of Hinduism. She raised a plea for the little children who were b eing sold into lives of shame as slaves in Hindu temples. Never content to do things man's way when the Lord was showing her a better way, Amy Carmichael was one of the first missionaries in India to adopt In dian dress. Amid Christians who considered manual labor dishonorable, she c heerfully settled down to doing her share of the work with the Dohnavur chi ldren. But the qualities of Amy Carmichael that will stand out to the reade r are her daring faith, her overcoming spirit, and her tender love for the children she sought to rescue. She was their beloved "Amma," or "Mother." H er family grew to almost a thousand children before her death in 1951. We hope that With Daring Faith will be a first step for our readers in discovering the wealth of insight and challenge that missionary biographies can offer. In Amy Carmichael's victories in India, we see the victory of the Lord Jesus Christ over the powers of darkness.
