Item description for You Are My Hiding Place (Rekindling the Inner Fire) by Amy Carmichael & David Hazard...
Overview Writings that touch the pure-flaming heart of God. . .from the men and women who walked with Him through the ages. . .guiding into a deeper friendship with the "Father of Lights."
Can I trust God in every circumstance? Can I rely on His promises-of protection, security, safety, provision, comfort-when I most need them? Is God always there for me? So many struggle to find confidence in God. Amy Carmichael stepped faithfully into the darkness surrounding her, and found the greatest "refuge" of all-the sheltering love of God, who is with us in all things.
When Amy Carmichael (1867-1951) arrived in India, she had no idea the dangerous work ahead-to save young girls from cult prostitution in Hindu temples. Nor could she imagine the times of material need, physical danger, pain and debilitating illness, disappointment and attack by friends. From this crucible, she writes of her uplifting times with God-who calls us all to find safety in Him, to live honestly before Him, and to receive peace as we live in His presence.

More About Amy Carmichael & David Hazard
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).

One of my Favorite Devos Jun 5, 2008
Not sure when or how I got to have this book, but I go back to it over and over again. I love Amy and I especially love this book because of the format and the particular excerpts David Hazard chose. Amy constantly challenges you to live closer to the Lord and at an ever higher standard of holiness. A must have!
Great Devotional Aug 23, 2007
This is a great tool in sharing with others how perseverence in Christ and sharing with others makes all the difference in a fallen world. May our hearts be ignited with the burning of the Spirit that Amy experienced.
Amy Carmichael always touches my soul! May 1, 2007
This little book is wonderful. I own many books by and about Amy Carmichael. Amy's writings are always encouraging, and her insights inspire me to strive for what she had--a PERSONAL and CLOSE relationship with God. I recommend this book to anyone who wants a little something extra added to their devotional time; you can't go wrong with this one.
a good devotional, especially if you are familiar with Amy Carmichael Jul 8, 2006
The editor of this little book took 40 excerpts from the various books and writings of Amy Carmichael. At the end of each excerpt, the editor writes his own short prayer that goes along with the theme. These were meaningful daily devotionals for 40 days. They will probably mean more if you are familiar with the life of Amy Carmichael. (She was a missionary to India in the early 1900's.) For instance, some of the devotionals on suffering will certainly mean more to you if you are familiar with the suffering Amy went through in the final years of her life. Amy has "been there" and can speak from first hand experience...
I'd also recommend the biography of Amy called "A Chance to Die : The Life and Legacy of Amy Carmichael".
You Are My Hiding Place Mar 15, 2004
My mom gave me this book when I was in early high school. It spoke to me then as a young Christian, and it speaks to me now more than 15 years later. I go back to it every once in a while. It both challenges me and comforts me. I highly recommend this book. There are even small prayers at the end of each section that you can either pray yourself or help you begin your own prayer. I also spend time reading the verses surrounding the beginning verse of each chapter.
