This is the real deal. There’s no gloss, no fluff, no wishy-washy Christianity. The author, Leslie pushes past the ‘shallow, self-focused, pleasure-seeking femininity’ that is common in today’s society (even in Christian circles) and sounds the call ‘for the heroic femininity that world-changing women of history understood’.
This is not for the faint hearted. Read it only if you are ready to trade in the mundane, everyday, ordinary life for one that is ‘radically abandoned, poured-out, servant-hearted’…
Let us live looking up, looking on, standing true by the grace of Him who has called us.
– Amy Carmichael (1867-1961)
