Vision Video Through Gates of Splendor, DVD

In 1956, Jim Elliot and four other men---missionaries to Ecuador's fierce stone-age tribe of Auca Indians---were brutally martyred. But it was not the death of the mission! Narrated by Jim's wife, Elisabeth, this DVD chronicles the gripping story of men and women willing to let God work through them at any cost. DVD special features include scene selection, and English and Spanish languages. Approx. 36 minutes.

Note: Please be advised that this film contains brief nudity.

This documentary highlights the lives and sacrifice of five young men who shared a passion to reach the Auca people in Ecuador, 1950's. Actual footage is shown of their first encounters with the Auca, the aftermath of the massacre, but especially God's amazing transformation of the murderers and their tribes when the families of the men came to offer not just forgiveness, but the Gospel which initially sent these men into the jungles. Narrated by Elisabeth Elliot, widow of one of the men, the documentary was probably low-budget, accounting for less visual/audio quality. It is still well-worth seeing and inspirational. I also highly recommend her book by the same title even more.

I had seen a movie about this subject and at the end they showed the actual people in the above film. The quality of the film wasn't that good and I would rate it just "OK". I have read the book, by the same name,however,and I highly recommend it!
