More > Splendid is a tragedy worthy of the Greeks. Originally played at the Harbourfront Theatre in Toronto, Alive & Splendid remains one of those great pieces of art which is here to stay.

Prints in 3-5 business days

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.

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
