Amy Carmichael

Beauty for Ashes

Iain Murray


‘This is a love story of the noblest kind. It is an enriching consideration of a woman’s relentless love for her Saviour, her Bible, her friends, and most uniquely, her love for lost, suffering and desperate sinners – to whom she gave her life. Such devotion as hers seems so distant. Reading this brief history will confront and help to close that distance.’ — JOHN MACARTHUR

‘Iain Murray has written a superb account of this remarkable woman’s life . . . He has read her books and her poetry, and what he writes reveals a keen understanding of the motives and undertakings of an extraordinary woman. It warmed my heart and informed my mind . . . I cannot too enthusiastically recommend this book.’ — IAN S. BARTER

‘Amy Carmichael receives a short but solid treatment from Iain Murray. I love the respect he has for her, even though she represents quite a different theological tradition.’ — TIM CHALLIES

Book review –’ beauty for ashes’

I found this to be both inspirational and challenging. It is thoroughly researched. Very readable. A great source for quotes for preachers & Christian workers. The 6 verse poem on page 2 is worth the price of the book alone, e.g. ‘No other reason can I find, No other reason can there be; No human love, were it not blind, Could ever are for me’. Above all it will move you to serve the Lord more faithfully. Steve J Carter
