A powerful story of great courage and God's grace.
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.
