More About Carmichael Amy

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Amy Carmichael (1867- 1951) was a Protestant Christian missionary in India, who opened an orphanage and founded a mission in Dohnavur. She was born in the small village of Millisle in Northern Ireland to devout Presbyterians, David and Catherine Carmichael and was the oldest of seven children. After her father's death, she was adopted and tutored by Robert Wilson, cofounder of the Keswick Convention. In many ways she was an unlikely candidate for missionary work. She suffered neuralgia, a disease of the nerves that made her whole body weak and achy and often put her in bed for weeks on end. It was at the Keswick Convention of 1887 that she heard Hudson Taylor speak about missionary life. Soon afterward, she became convinced of her calling to the same labour. Initially Amy travelled to Japan for fifteen months, but she later found her lifelong vocation in India. She was commissioned by the Church of England Zenana Missionary Society. Much of her work was with young ladies, some of whom were saved from forced prostitution. The organization she founded was known as the Dohnavur Fellowship. Dohnavur is situated in Tamil Nadu, just thirty miles from the southern tip of India. Under her loving guidance, the fellowship would become a place of sanctuary for more than one thousand children who would otherwise have faced a bleak future. In an effort to respect Indian culture, members of the organization wore Indian dress and the children were given Indian names. She herself dressed in Indian clothes, dyed her skin with coffee, and often travelled long distances on India's hot, dusty roads to save just one child from suffering. In 1931, Carmichael was badly injured in a fall, which left her bedridden much of the time until her death. Amy Carmichael died in India in 1951 at the age of 83. She asked that no stone be put over her grave; instead, the children she had cared for put a bird bath over it with the single inscription "Amma," which means mother in the Tamil. Amy Carmichael's work also extended to the printed page. She was a prolific writer, producing thirty-five published books including His Thoughts Said . . . His Father Said (1951), If (1953), and Edges of His Ways (1955). Best known, perhaps, is an early historical account, Things as They Are: Mission Work in Southern India (1903).

Amy Carmichael was born in 1867 and died in 1951.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Priceless  Jan 10, 2007
My only complaint is that its paperback, because this is the kind of book that I don't think I'll ever stop opening. Perhaps I'll get it rebound or something.
Mountain Breezes  Aug 10, 2006
It is a sad fact that many of Amy Carmichael's most moving poems are now found only in volumes long out of print. To remedy this situation is one of the goals of this publication. To make more accessible the many bits of poetry - usually untitled in situ - scattered throughout her various works of prose is another. But above all, we the editors wish to more adequtely display both the depth and breath of her saintly insights. For though they span nearly 55 years of her remarkable life, they are timeless.

Some of these 568 poems may strike the careful reader as (to use Amy's words) "not perfected" - but we are convinced they are a mere minority. (Can every sentiment of even the greatest muse be graded above average?) Most of her verses we find to be not only mature but truly discerning and stirring to the spirit. Some we regard as genuine masterpieces, both as to form and content - and we trust you come to the same conclusion.

Much effort has been taken to title the poems and to group them by theme, so as to increase their helpfulness to the heart yearning for a closer walk with Christ. Accordingly, we have divided them under seven major heads: Worship, Petition, Surrender, Ministry, Wartime, Encouragement, and Yourthful Thoughts. Many of the poems, of course, overflow the bounds of their designated category - for who can contain the zephyrs which sweep refreshingly across a mountanous terrain? And such are these "mountain breezes."

It is our desire and hope that the Spirit who moved the heart of His servant to express herself in these vibrant stanzas will captivate your heart and mind also as you enter into the cascade of these inspring minds.
