About this ebook

The true story of five young twentieth-century martyrs.

In 1956, five young men traveled deep into the jungles of Ecuador to establish communication and share the gospel with the fierce and isolated Waorani tribe. In nearby villages, their wives huddled around radio receivers, eagerly awaiting news of the historic encounter. The news they received sent shock waves around the world and changed their lives forever.

Beautifully told through the eyes of Elisabeth Elliot, in partnership with the other four missionaries’ wives, and featuring original diary entries and photos, Through Gates of Splendor is a timeless classic, a harrowing story of self-sacrifice, and a powerful wake-up call to anyone pondering the call to follow Christ…. wherever he may lead.
