Editorial Reviews

One of the most gripping missionary sagas of our time. Five missionaries went into the land of the savage Aucas. Their offer of friendship was rejected, and the Aucas killed the missionaries. Elisabeth Elliot, wife of one of the martyrs, her daughter and Rachel Saint would not give up and eventually lived among and brought the Gospel to the Aucas. Narrated by Elisabeth Elliot, Through Gates of Splendor is an effective demonstration of God's grace at work during an unforgettable moment in modern missions history.

Caution: This DVD contains original film footage of Auca natives shot by Nate Saint which includes some brief nudity.

This movie accurately explains why and how the 1950s tragedy happened, and why those who lived through it call it God's plan for blessing. Hearing the accounts from the 5 wives' point of view and seeing the men's primary source video, helps to piece the story together through the lens of family. Recent video enlightens the viewer to show differences between "now" and "then." Being able to hear the tribal folks' point of view is a treat, as well. They speak in Huaorani with English subtitles.

Also interesting are the anthropological tidbits from anthropologists who had studied the Huaorani as well as other "untouched" ethnic groups in Africa and the Pacific. The cultural contrasts and comparisons were fascinating.

This story is entertaining, gripping, true, and thought-provoking. A good starting point in discovery of the past, present, and future of the Amazonian tribes in Ecuador.

For those who have been touched and inspired by Elisabeth Elliot and the five missionaries who died for the sake of the gospel of Christ, this is a documentary worth seeing. It gives faces to the names and stories we have become so familiar with, and provides bits of information to fill in some gaps. Worth the time to watch. Worth the money to buy.

This is an excellent, moving, true story, of missionaries in Equador in the 1950s. This is a presentation based on the book, Through Gates of Splendor, and in narration, photos, and videos by one of the missionaries' sons, and eye-witnesses.

This film, as I see it, is a concrete example of what it looks like to walk in the Spirit. She was surrendered to Christ, living a life that was about building His kingdom instead of her own. I have only been a Christian for 8 years and do not know what missionary work looks like (I'm 61 and not likely to do any, but I want to understand it); the film helped me in that it provided a glimpse of that. That also helped me understand that witnessing about Christ doesn't have to be done in some rigid way, but that the gospel message could be proclaimed in a very unstructured setting and bit by bit if necessary. I am glad to know that, it takes some pressure off me regarding opportunities that might arise.

Great documentary and great preview to the movie, "The End of The Spear." Anyone with a heart for missions should see this.

I'm reminded of this scripture as I think about this movie. It's the true story of missionary families who went down to live in the east jungles of Ecuador to bring the Christian religion to a wild tribe of people who were known to be head hunters. The story shares the sacrifices they made to share their Christian belief, and their willingness to die for their beliefs. You also see great examples of unconditional charity and forgiveness. One might question if the ultimate sacrifice that was paid was really necessary and if greater precautions could have been taken and still had similar success among the natives. (Only God knows.) Nevertheless it's an inspiring yet sad story.
