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.

In 1903 Amy Carmichael's book Things as They Are shocked many Englishmen and Americans into taking a close look at India. Unafraid of public criticism, Amy Carmichael had revealed to the Western world the spiritual bondage of India as well as the suffering of thousands under the supposedly "benign" religion of Hinduism. She raised a plea for the little children who were being sold into lives of shame as slaves in Hindu temples.
