A great read. This story is moving, impacting, and powerful. It truly shows the fearlessness and courage of these five men who were willing to obey the command of their Lord. The testimonies of these men will honestly convict your life. Highly recommend it!
through gates of splendor was a great missionary story... elisabeth elliot did a great job telling the story of the lives involved...... and to show how they trusted god for everything even till the end ..... and the widows kept that trust in the lord even after the deaths of there husbands...that shows what great faith they have in our almighty lord who always watches over his people....I know I will read this book again and again and will let others enjoy reading it to...... thanks for a great book
The way this book is written, it was as if I were there with these young missionaries. This was a good reminder of how things really are in the field. While I'm home in my comfortable home with all of my stuff, missionaries are busy reaching the lost with very little comforts.
Reading this book gave me a picture of what is required of being a missionary - total surrender to the Lord and total trust in Him. What an amazing, true, account of people who had given the ultimate for others to come to Christ. Christ wins! I couldn't put the book down.
