Disappointingly low view of Christ and the Bible, good overview of the great work God did through Amy Carmichael.
Good introduction to the marvelous things Christ did through her life.

But it is disappointingly shallow, having a low view of Christ and His Word.
Two thirds into the book and I think I haven't heard Christ mentioned even once. "Jesus" was mentioned twice I think, once as a quote from the Gospels. Never as God, never as Lord, never as one who should be loved and worshiped.
Often "God" is mentioned, but even then rarely as someone majestic and holy and exciting and the source of the greatest joy and awe.
The Bible is rarely emphasized, the guidance of God is usually something that Amy "felt" or "had a strong impression".

Would have really liked to be encouraged to love Christ more and do more for Him, but I guess I should use a different biography, maybe the one Elisabeth Elliot wrote, since she always point towards holiness and love for Christ.

I am inspired by her life, dedicated to God
The biography inspires me, by example, to live a life dedicated to serve God in obedient humbleness. It also shows how God allows difficulties so as to break the power of the old nature and release Christ in the Christian's life .

Faith building
These YWAM Christian biographies are very well done and show both the human frailty of the missionaries but also how God can perform the most amazing feats through them to help bring the unsaved into the Kingdom of God.
