A Chance to Die is a vibrant portrayal of Amy Carmichael, an Irish missionary and writer who spent fifty-three years in south India without furlough. There she became known as “Amma,” or “mother,” as she founded the Dohnavur Fellowship, a refuge for underprivileged children.
Amy’s life of obedience and courage stands as a model for all who claim the name of Christ. She was a woman with desires and dreams, faults and fears, who gave her life unconditionally to serve her Master.
Bringing Amma to life through inspiring photos and compelling biographical narrative, Elisabeth Elliot urges readers to examine the depths of their own commitment to Christ.
A gripping story featured on ABC Primetime with Diane Sawyer. Compelling story of love between a man and a woman, and a mission. On April 20, 2001, the plane in which missionaries Jim and Roni Bowers and their children were riding was shot down over Peru in an interception of a perceived drug plane. Roni and their seven-month old daughter, Charity, were killed. This tragedy has touched the lives of millions of people, believers and non-believers alike. If God Should Choose portrays the Bowers’ story coherently and completely. This sobering work will leave readers more committed to, in the words of Jim Bowers, ‘stay alert to the things that really matter, to cherish [their] loved ones even more, to be ever ready to explain (and live) the truth to friends who do not know Christ personally.’

For Dr. Elena Burroughs, life is divided into two chapters—before and after the death of her husband. Today marks the point that her span of being a wife is equal to her span of being a widow. Even her success as a psychologist and her worldwide acclaim for a book on the interpretation of dreams is dimmed by an unspoken If only. Then a new patient arrives, one so private only her first name is given. Impeccably dressed and escorted by two bodyguards, Sandra recounts a frightening series of recurrent nightmares. Elena agrees to consider her case more carefully, convinced that something ominous may be at work here. Elena’s interpretation of her dreams confirms that, indeed, the new patient and her family confront a powerful global network of dangerous forces. As the story unfolds, they face a key question of the Christian life: How do you understand and fulfill the will of God?

As the group begins to quilt in the Four Hearts pattern, will Diana open herself up to the friendship of the circle – and the love of a curious observer? Relax along the banks of the historic Ohio River and watch four searching young women transform into stable servants of the Lord. Their stories will warm your heart and inspire your soul.
