Through Gates of Splendor

In 1956, five young men, including Elliot’s husband, Jim, traveled into the jungles of Ecuador to establish communication with the fierce Huaorani Tribe, a people whose only previous response to the outside world has been to attack all strangers. The men’s mission combined modern technology with innate ingenuity, sparked by a passionate determination to get the gospel to t

    This is probably one of the most famous missionary stories in the world.

    Five men, sold out for God, entered the dangerous territory of the Auca tribe in Ecuador in the 1950’s to try and reach them with the Gospel. They never returned. Their bodies were found a few days later on a beach. Elisabeth Elliot, the wife of Jim, collated their journals and filled in the gaps with first-hand knowledge.

    Five men, sold out for God, entered the dangerous territory of the Auca tribe in Ecuador in the 1950’s to try and reach them with the Gospel. They never returned. Their bodies were found a few days later on a beach. Elisabeth Elliot, the wife of Jim, collated their journals and filled in the gaps with first-hand knowledge.

    What struck me most forcefully was the wholehearted commitment of every one of these men to give up everything worldly for the sake of Christ. This, despite pressure and opposition from many, perhaps unexpected, directions; they were well educated, with bright futures and still young!

    Pete was expected to become a college professor or Bible teacher. But to throw away his life among ignorant savages. It was thought absurd.

    Jim wrote to his parents: ‘Seems impossible that I am so near my senior year, and truthfully, it hasn’t the glow about it that I rather expected. There is no such thing as attainment in this life; as soon as one arrives at a long coveted position he only jacks up his desire another notch or so and looks for higher achievement–a process which is ultimately suspended by the intervention of death. Life is truly likened to a rising vapor, coiling, evanescent, shifting. May the Lord teach us what it means to live in terms of the end, like Paul who said, ‘Neither count I my life dear unto myself, that I might finish my course with joy….

    Nate wrote, It was the first time that I ever really heard that verse: ‘Follow me, and I will make you to become fishers of men.’ The old life of chasing things that are of a temporal sort seemed absolutely insane….As we have a high old time this Christmas, may we who know Christ hear the cry of the damned as they hurtle headlong into the Christless night without ever a chance. May we be moved with compassion as our Lord was. May we shed tears of repentance for those we have failed to bring out of darkness. May God give us a new vision of His will concerning the lost and our responsibility.

    The stark contrast between the statements of these men and our, often, half-hearted commitments to the cause of Christ today are convicting and challenging. Are we called to any less, in terms of our heart devotion?

    One of the men, Roger, had already experienced the hardships of a missionary life, yet still went willingly with the others believing it was of God:

    A missionary plods through the first year or two, thinking that things will be different when he speaks the language. He is baffled to find, frequently, that they are not. He is stripped of all that may be called ‘romance.’ Life has fallen more or less into a pattern. Day follows day in unbroken succession; there are no crises, no mass conversions, sometimes not even one or two to whom he can point and say, ‘There is a transformed life. If I had not come, he would never have known Christ.’…The forces of evil, unchallenged for so long, are now set in array against the missionary.

    Every prospective missionary should read these paragraphs. This is the reality. Mass conversions and daily encouragements would in our day be referred to as ‘fake news!’ The missionary life is hard….

    One of the things that makes this book is the reaction of the wives to the news that their husbands have all been killed. They had committed them to God and continue to trust that God is faithful and knows what He is doing despite their grief.

    From the author, Cause and effect are in God’s hands. Is it not the part of faith simply to let them rest there? God is God. I dethrone Him in my heart if I demand that He acts in ways that satisfy my idea of justice. There is unbelief, there is even rebellion, in the attitude that says, ‘God has no right to do this to five men unless….

    The women recognised that God allowed the terrible tragedy to unfold. They stood by the decision of their men when questions were asked as to why they had gone into Auca territory in the first place; the men had sincerely believed it was the will of God.

    Events that took place afterwards reveal aspects of God’s bigger plan, but that’s contained in other books, so I won’t spoil it for you! Eternity alone will tell how many souls were saved as a result of the sacrifice of these men either through hearing about the story or through people responding to the missionary call.

    There are many spiritual lessons in this book that can be applied directly. I recommend that all Christians read this. Then, instead of just saying, “Wow, that’s inspirational”, or “What a sad story”, take up the torch and follow wherever Jesus is leading you.

    This book is clean: Free of bad language and sexual content. There is violence due to the subject matter but it isn’t sensationalised.

    it was amazing

    I rate this book 5 stars for the story itself, the writing is actually more like 4 stars at best. This book has really made me think. I find myself in moments of silence returning back to the story and the messages one can draw away from it. The book was about 5 American missionaries who were murdered by the hands of those they were striving to teach and convert to Christianity. Some of the thoughts that came to mind when reading this book were, what makes a man so completely devoted to his fait

    “When life’s flight is over, and we unload our cargo at the other end, the fellow who got rid of unnecessary weight will have the most valuable cargo to present the Lord.”

    “When it comes time to die, make sure that all you have to do is die.”

    It is a thought provoking book and reflection upon one’s own conversion and faith.

    review of another edition

    The powerful and “cut-to-the-heart” challenging account written by the widow of one of the 5 young missionaries who gave up their earthly lives with the death-defying intention of reaching the Auca Indians in Ecuador for the sake of their Sovereign God and His Gospel. I am profoundly impacted by their testimony, as I am by the events following this book: Elisabeth, widow of Jim Elliot, and Rachel Saint, the sister of another one of the her martyrs Nate, remained in Ecuador in their work amongst

    5 stars for the story, 4 stars for the writing – got lost in the details of the preparations & it could have done with some editing.

    This section below was the most compelling to me:
    “The other wives and I talked together one night about the possibility of becoming widows. What would we do? God gave us peace of heart, and confidence that whatever might happen, His Word would hold. We knew that ‘when He Putteth forth His sheep, He goeth before them.’ God’s leading was unmistakable up to this point. Each of us knew when we married our husbands that there would never be any question about who came first — God and His work held held first place in each life. It was the condition of true discipleship; it became devastatingly meaningful now.

    It was a time for soul-searching, a time for counting the possible cost. Was it the thrill of adventure that drew our husbands on? No. Their letters and journals make it abundantly clear that these men did not go out as some men go out to shoot a lion or climb a mountain. Their compulsion was from a different source. Each had made a personal transaction with God, recognising that he belonged to God, first of all by creation, and secondly by redemption through the death of His Son, Jesus Christ. This double claim on his life settled once and for all the question of allegiance. It was not a matter of striving to follow the example of a great Teacher. To conform to the perfect life of Jesus was impossible for a human being. To these men, Jesus Christ was God, and had actually taken upon Himself human form, in order that He might die, and, by His death, provide not only escape from the punishment which their sin merited, but also a new kind of life, eternal both in length and in quality. This meant simply that Christ was to be obeyed, and more than that, He would provide the power to obey.”
