Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The unforgettable true story of five men who braved Auca lances. This edition includes a follow-up chapter that will give readers a unique perspective. Five men entered the jungle in search of a savage tribe . . . and never returned. In January 1956, a tragic story flooded headlines around the world. Five men, spurred by a passion to share the good news of Jesus Christ, ventured deep into the jungles of Ecuador. Their goal: to make contact with an isolated tribe whose previous response to the outside world had been to attack all strangers. Through Gates of Splendor, the story of Nate Saint, Roger Youderian, Ed McCully, Pete Fleming, and Jim Elliot, was first recorded in 1956 by Jim's widow, Elisabeth. Decades later, its story of unconditional love and complete obedience to God still inspires new readers. This edition contains subsequent developments in the lives of the families and the Waodani tribe.

Synopsis:

It was a story that shook the world. In the autumn of 1955 five young men had dared to make contact with a Stone Age tribe deep in the jungles of Ecuador. The goal: to establish communication with a people whose only previous response to the outside world had been to attack all strangers. // The men's mission combined modern technology with innate ingenuity, sparked by a passionate determination to get the gospel to a people without Christ. // After several preliminary overtures of friendship, the men set out on a crucial January day in 1956 for a meeting with the Waorani tribesman, who had reacted with apparent tolerance to earlier gifts and messages. // The story of Nate Saint, Roger Youderian, Ed McCully, Pete Fleming, and Jim Elliot was recorded several months later by Jim's wife, Elisabeth. Through Gates of Splendor has since become a classic, one that has inspired hundreds of thousands of people.
