Through Gates of Splendor
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 passion to share the good nes of Jesus Christ, ventured deep into the jungles of Ecuador. Their goal: to make contact with an isloated tribe whose previous response to the outside world ha been to attack all strangers.
At an agreed-upon time, their five young wives sat by their radios, waiting for a message that never came...
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 of the Waodani tribe.
