Heartbreaking but beautiful. I gave this a 4 star rating not because the writing was amazing (it was dry/slow at times) but more because the faith and daily living of these men (and their wives) was truly amazing. But let me tell you, going into it with no idea of what happens was in this case (and this case only) NOT the thing to do. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. We’d love your help.
The film recounts the story of Through Gates of Splendor, but from the perspective of Steve Saint (the son of Nate Saint, one of the missionaries killed in the encounter) as well as from Mincavani, one of the tribesmen who took part in the attack. Some of the thoughts that came to mind when reading this book were, what makes a man so completely devoted to his faith?
5 men risked, and finally gave, their lives to bring the message of God's salvation to a small group of primitively Ecuadorian Indians. Even though I thought it was crazy that these 5 men put themselves in harm's way, their death actually converted far more and opened the door wider than if they would have lived. His grace is at the nucleus of … While I was indeed longing for a good, old-style missionary story, this was more realistic than most, quite matter-of-fact indeed, without showing the missionaries as heroes as some others do.
Some of my contemporaries may remember the publication which was used by hundreds of churches for their weekly unified Sunday School teaching materials. From the Author's Web Site: My parents were missionaries in Belgium where I was born. I am left feeling moved and inspired to continue to serve and sacrifice Christ no matter what the cost. It has given me so much to think about, and what encouragement it is to see people living by faith and not by sight amidst persecution. 5 men risked, and finally gave, their lives to bring the message of God's salvation to a small group of primitively Ecuadorian Indians. An amazing account of the ministry of the five men that were killed by Auca indians in 1956. I would love to have a friend read it so we could talk about it! Oh to be so grounded in spiritual truths that even the most debilitating tragedies can be met with such faith! Much of the story is taken directly from the diaries kept by the missionaries. "Through Gates of Splendor" tells the bittersweet story of five missionaries. Five, who sacrificed everything they had on earth, in hopes of bringing someone new to God. My first time reading this entirely through. Written Elisabeth Elliot, newly widowed wife of Jim Elliot, the reader comes to know each missionary couple personally through their journals and recollections.
I don't think I could ever have the level of faith these men did. The book is Elliot's first book, and arguably her most well known work. It's a good story that would have been better told by someone else. "Through Gates of Splendor" tells the bittersweet story of five missionaries. 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. Very happy I read this!
The book was about 5 American missionaries who were murdered by the hands of those they were striving to teach and convert to Christianity.
Written Elisabeth Elliot, newly widowed wife of Jim Elliot, the reader comes to know each missionary couple personally through their journals and recollections. The earnestness of the five missionary couples will carry readers through slower parts as the book chronicles months of preparation, detailed accounts of attempts to befriend the Indian tribe, and the final climactic moments in which the wives await news of their …
So very interesting. Later, Steve Saint, the son of one of the slain men moved his family from Florida to live with the same Waodani family that had killed his father. True story of 5 male missionaries who were murdered by indigenous people in Ecquador in the fifties. All five of the men were killed by the tribe. Wow. The book was published in multiple languages including English, consists of 304 pages and is available in Paperback format. Once again it goes back to that desire the 5 men had to bring the Gospel to every man. Having said that this was fascinating. A beautifully crafted documentary about five young missionaries who were martyred by a savage tribe of Indians in the mid 1950s and the heroic effort of reconciliation that has followed. This story inspired the 2006 box office hit End of the Spear and is sure to inspire the next generation of servant believers.
It bored me to death, but probably most likely because I am young. It's a good story that would have been better told by someone else. |
