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. Unabridged. 6 hours, 45 minutes. Read by Marguerite Gavin.
