Several years ago I offered this book during the monthly book giveaway, and though I’ve yet to repeat a book, this one is just too good not to give away a few more copies of it. As I wrote previously:
Few books have the ability to grip the reader, bring tremendous illumination, conviction, and stirring of soul, and do it all within fifty pages. Such is the case for Amy Carmichael’s book God’s Missionary. It is as if Carmichael wrote the words with a dagger dipped in her own sweat and blood, for she not only sets a seemingly impossible standard for her readers but goes on to prove that such a life is possible by living the words she wrote.
This impossible standard, yet the call upon every Christian, as well as a summary of the book, is heard in the words of Jesus: If you want to be My disciple, you must deny yourself [give up the right to yourself], take up the Cross, and follow Me.
Amy Carmichael writes that as believers we are to be disentangled from the world, separated unto Jesus, and crowned (anointed) with love. We MUST have all three. Anything less is not Christianity. As Paul declared, we are to know nothing but Christ and Him crucified. May this be our single passion, pleasure, and desire.
I cannot recommend God’s Missionary any higher. It is one of those books I read a couple times a year—it never grows old, in fact the words become more sharp, the depth becomes more rich, and God’s pressing upon my soul becomes all the more intense.
This month, I’m excited to give away seven copies of God’s Missionary to a member of the deeperChristian community!
