In 1956, five young men - Nate Saint, Roger Youderian, Ed McCully, Pete Fleming, and Jim Elliot - traveled into the jungles of Ecuador to establish communication with the fierce Waorani tribe. In a nearby village, their wives waited to hear from them. The news they received - all five missionaries had been murdered - changed lives forever. Recounted by Elisabeth Elliot, best-selling author and widow of pilot Jim Elliot, using private journals, letters, and photographs, along with personal accounts of their widows, families, and colleagues, the story told in Through Gates of Splendor remains profoundly influential generations later.

"I would say, without hesitation, God used this book to change my life."
In 1956, five young men, including Elliots husband, Jim, traveled into the jungles of Ecuador to establish communication with the fierce Huaorani Tribe, a people whose only previous response to the outside world had been to attack all strangers. The mens mission combined modern technology with innate ingenuity, sparked by a passionate determination to get the gospel to those without Christ. In a nearby village, their wives waited to hear from them. The news they receivedall five missionaries had been murderedchanged lives around the world forever.
Written while she was still a missionary in South America and at the request of the mens families, Through Gates of Splendor was Elisabeth Elliots personal account of the final mission of these five courageous men. Filled with quotations from letters, material from personal journals, a wealth of photographs, and an epilogue update, this reprint of the original hardcover edition tells a lasting story of Gods grace, unconditional love, and great courage. This story inspired the 2006 box office hit End of the Spear and is sure to inspire the next generation of servant believers.
Jennie WrenRoyalton, MNAge: 45-54Gender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5Profound inspirationAugust 2, 2015Jennie WrenRoyalton, MNAge: 45-54Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I first read this book a few years ago and couldnt put it down. It is a riveting true story of five men and their wives surrendered to and being used by God in the jungles of Ecuador. They were there to bring the Gospel to the Auca tribe, known to be murderously violent. In January 1956, the five men were killed by members of the tribe, but not before seeds of the Gospel had been planted. The author, Elisabeth Elliot, was one of the widows and she and her daughter actually lived with the Auca tribe (called the Waodani) for two years. The sister of another of the men, Rachel Saint, also lived with the tribe a people who now know God.
Steve Saint, son of one of the men, accompanied Waodanis Indians Mincaye and Tementa to the International Conference for Itinerant Evangelists (Amsterdam 2000), where they gave their testimonies. In the days following Elisabeths death, I read in one article that at that conference, more than 70% of those attending attributed their service to the inspiration they received from those five men.
In the wake of Elisabeth Elliots recent death, with her name and her writings and recordings more visible in the news, it is my hope and prayer that through her witness, many more people learn of these men who freely gave their lives that this tribe would come to faith, and would find courage to let themselves be used by God.

debbie kPartlow, VAAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Real story of real missionariesAugust 3, 2011debbie kPartlow, VAAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The 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.
ElizabethInHisGrip5 Stars Out Of 5July 24, 2011ElizabethInHisGripQuality: 5Value: 5Reading 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.
