Included in this collection are the complete texts of:
1. If (Calvary’s Love). A short but powerful look at what it means to live a life of love; sacrificial “Calvary” love.
2. Things As They Are: Missionary Work in South India (1903). One of her first books ever written, it is a look at Amy's daily life in her work in South India, especially that of rescuing young children from temple prostitution (aka: "being married to the gods"). It was so shocking that many didn't believe what she'd written when it was first published, so this edition contains a number of letters from other missionaries confirming the truth of what Amy wrote. (32 chapters and dozens of illustrations)
3. Overweights of Joy (1906). A sequel to Things As They Are, it continues the story of Amy’s work, honestly sharing its joys and struggles. (36 chapters, illustrated).
4. Lotus Buds (1909). A touching look at many of the precious children that Amy and her companions saved out of temple prostitution. (36 chapters, illustrated).
5. Walker of Tinnevelly (1916) was a missionary and fiery revival preacher in India. He went to South India with the CMS (Church Missionary Society) in Tirrunevelly (South India) from 1885 until his death in 1912. He was a powerful preacher and helped form many evangelistic traveling groups. While he faced much opposition from Hindus he also saw sparks of revival, especially in 1905-1906. He was a mentor and teacher to Amy Carmichael and encouraged her in her work among temple girls and women. (39 chapters, illustrated).
6. Ponnamal: Her Story (1918). The touching story of one of Amy’s faithful helpers in her mission. (17 chapters)
7. The Continuation of a Story (1914). As the title suggests, a short continuation and elaboration of the work at Dohnavur. (6 chapters).
