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.
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 and the Waodani tribe.
