Item description for Edges Of His Ways by Amy Carmichael...
Overview MARCHING ORDERS FOR THE END BATTLE
The nation in which you and I live may presently be at peace, but the possibility of war always looms. Everything is heading toward the great and final battle which John describes in the Book of Revelation. In reality, the war between good and evil, God's kingdom and that of Satan, has been in progress since the Garden of Eden. The turmoil and strife we continually see reported in the newspaper and on TV testifies to this fact.
Jesus is already Victor over Satan. Every Christian, however, needs to experience this victory personally. Wherever we live, whatever our cultural situation, we are in a battle. Not only does Corrie point out how the Christian soldier needs to be prepared for this battle, she also tells of the wonderful provision God has already made to equip this army. Here are your marching orders.

More About Amy Carmichael
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).
