Although Amy spoke often on the topic of suffering (she was bedridden at the writing of this book), she spoke more and more frequently on the topic of love...indeed her last words were on that topic. She who suffered much, loved much...and the capacity she had for that love was enlarged by her suffering. This is a short book, packed full of wisdom by a woman who, as was spoken of another, "bled Scripture"....the Scripture she quoted was from versions of the Bible that are now unknown to us...but how beautiful they are! And they give illumination on the subtleties of meaning that we do not appreciate in our current translations. I would say that as much as it was delightful read Amy's thoughts, it was equally enlightening to read those Scriptures. A delightful book which encourages me, who knows what it is to suffer.

I've read excerpts of this book in other Carmichael anthologies. It's great to have a copy of the complete book, to have alongside of several other works by her. This book contains short excerpts of her encouragements to others in Christ. I read a page each morning along with my other devotional materials. This one comes first.

Amy Carmichael says what my heart wants to say but does not know how. Extremely excellent in every way. Written for those who desire a closer walk with God.

This was a gift for someone else, but I took a quick look through and what I read I really liked. Very encouraging and I love Amy Carmichael.

This has been a blessing to read every time and I wanted to send it on to some friends.
So good to have it in paperback with attractive cover. I am a reader of Amy C. from way back.
