Prints in 3-5 business days
This book is a landmark work on missions in India by none other than Amy Carmichael herself. Telling, because it was written on the cusp between the old and the modern eras of missions, just at the... More > turn of the 1900's. The image of missionary as adventurer and explorer was just beginning to fade, and a revolution of world missions was yet just the stuff of dreams. This book is the gripping story of India in light and darkness. A land of child slavery, witchcraft, and entire populations dominated by Brahmin and Shamans wielding the threat of terrible curses, sickness and death. A land where the light of Christ has come in many places, but Christians in the West have lost interest in supporting the men and women living and dying to bring the gospel of Christ to peoples who might never hear His name! This book is both graphic and beautiful; showing humanity painted glorious in the light, and horrific in darkness. Amy Carmichael will be remembered down through the annals of history.< Less

And I have notes on a substituted ceremony, in which a sacrificial sheep is shaved so as to produce a crude representation of a human being, a Hindu sect mark painted on its forehead, a turban stuck on its head, and a cloth around its body. The picturesque, but barbaric ceremony of hook-swinging is now regarded with disfavour by Government, and, some time ago, I witnessed a tame substitute for the original ceremony, in which, instead of a human being with strong iron hooks driven through the small of his back, a little wooden figure, dressed up in turban and body cloth, and carrying a shield and sabre, was hoisted on high and swung round.”< Less
