I would say, without hesitation, God used this book to change my life. Chuck SwindollIn 1956, five young men, including Elliot s 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 men s 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 received all five missionaries had been murdered changed lives around the world forever.Written while she was still a missionary in South America and at the request of the men s families, "Through Gates of Splendor" was Elisabeth Elliot s 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 God s 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."
