Through Gates of Splendour: The five missionary martyrs of Ecuador
The inspiring story of five missionaries who were martyred in the jungles of Ecuador as they attempted to reach the local people with the gospel.
In 1956 the world was stunned by a shocking event.
Five young Americans: Nate Saint, Roger Youderian, Ed McCully, Pete Fleming and Jim Elliot, had ventured into the jungles of Ecuador on a mission to share the Word of God with the local tribes.
Tragically, they were savagely murdered by the very people they had come to save.
In Through Gates of Splendour Jim’s widow, Elisabeth, tells their remarkable story of courage and devotion to Christ in the face of danger and difficulty.
Elisabeth Elliot served as a missionary in Ecuador and worked with her husband Jim Elliot on translating the New Testament into the language of the Quichua people. Elisabeth authored several classic books including Shadow of the Almighty, Through Gates of Splendour and Passion and Purity.
