Compelling and Authentic
I first read this book nearly 30 years ago as a High School student, it challenged me and changed my life. Through Gates of Splendor introduced me to the idea that vision, preparation, and sacrifice, anchored in a profound love for God can in fact change the world. I am still blown away by the honesty of Elizabeth Elliot's writing. She so vividly portrays the youthful zeal and ultimate hopefulness of these men right up to the unimaginable moment of their death. Their passion to reach the lost in the jungles of Ecuador 50 years ago still serves as profound inspiration for Christians today. The Christian community now faces the challenge of reaching multitudes locked behind a religious veil who have never heard of the great love Jesus demontrated on the cross. It will take a new generation willing to prepare and sacrifice to reach them. Thankfully we have this example of authentic faith to provoke us in prayer and action. It was a true pleasure to hear the words of this compelling story so wonderfully narrated by Marguerite Gavin.

The Narrator takes away from the story
I'm SOOO SAD about the narrator. The story is incredible. It's so distracting 😞 to listen to the narrator and really takes away from the story.
