Publisher's Description

A documentary about the sacrifice of five men that led to the redemption of a whole tribe.


Beyond the Gates of Splendor tells the true story of five young couples who became missionaries to Ecuador in the 1950s, forsaking the comforts of the United States for life in the Amazon jungle. There they attempted peaceable contact with the Waodani, a tribe known for excessive violence. The Waodani brutally killed all five husbands. Amazingly, the wife and child of one of the slain men, and the sister of another, went to live and share Christ s salvation with the very people who had murdered their loved ones.

This study guide will help you discuss some of the major themes of Beyond the Gates of Splendor. What are people like without law, left to their own devices? How do we live in the shadow of death? How can we love our enemies?
