Item description for Amy Carmichael: Let the Little Children Come by Lois Hoadley Dick...
Overview Converted to Christ at sixteen, Amy Carmichael worked in street missions for several years before serving two years as a missionary to Japan. At twenty-eight, she left for India, with high hopes of spreading the good news of Christ to the Indian people. The year was 1895, and Amy did not know she was about to encounter a practice that would revolutionize her life and ministry. A custom of the time later prohibited by law - permitted five- and six-year-old children to be "married to the gods" and thus launched into a life of prostitution. God richly blessed Amy's effort's and sent more and more of His "jewels" into her care. This is the story of her significant and remarkable work.
Publishers Description Arriving in India, Amy Carmichael sees little children married to pagan priests for temple prostitution. Amy rescues these children and provides a safe, healthy home for them.

A well written book about a remarkable lady. Apr 13, 2002
This book gives a concise biography of Amy's life, yet is written in a way to draw the reader into the circumstances and time in which Amy lived. I gained a great admiration for Amy. She truly lived out her love for the Lord and the Indian people.
A Wonderful Point of View Jun 22, 2000
This book opened my eyes to see the truth of the children in India. It broke my heart for these children, but I loved hearing the story of Amy's dedication to these children and how she changed thier lives. It encouraged me to see how God worked in the situations that she was in.
