Publisher's Summary

Jim and Pete turned to see the Auca men, their deadly spears raised, running toward Nate, Ed, and Roger. Jim stood in the river, his hand on his pistol. Should he defend himself? He already knew the answer. Each man had promised the others that he would not save himself by killing those they had sought out in Jesus' name. Jim Elliot and his coworkers surrendered their lives in Ecuador's jungle, trusting that their sacrifice would not be in vain. Decades later, this dramatic event has challenged countless Christians to live with one great purpose: To bring the gospel to those who have never heard. (1927-1956).

    "Profound Example of God Moving in Someone's Life"
    Would you listen to Jim Elliot again? Why?

    Yes, incredibly inspiring and enriching story.


    Have you listened to any of Tim Gregory’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yes, without spoiling the outcome, the part about the encounter with the indian tribe and how that experience brought them to know God.


    Any additional comments?

    I was moved to tears.

    "Great Overview"

    As with most abridged works it felt at times that the authors were working hard to summarize the story which made it feel a little lacking for details, but I guess I could have just read "Through Gates of Splendor". I did feel like I got a great high level overview, but I would say that it felt like many of the spiritual details were removed. I cannot be too critical because I have not read the Through Gates of Splendor. Overall with the time. Thanks.
