Author: Elizabeth Elliot

Image "He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose" - Jim Elliot.   We will never be able to forget the five young men who were violently killed in the Ecuadorian jungle by the Auca indians they were seeking to reach with the gospel. The widow of one of these men, Elisabeth Elliot, records their bravery and dedication to Christ in the face of danger and difficulties.

Marj stood at the wireless; her eyes were closed. After a while she spoke: “They have found a body” … 

Through Gates of Splendor is a 1957 best selling book written by Elisabeth Elliot. The book tells the story of Operation Auca, an attempt of five American missionaries - Jim Elliot (the author's husband), Pete Fleming, Ed McCully, Nate Saint, and Roger Youderian - to reach the Huaorani tribe of eastern Ecuador. All five of the men were killed by the tribe. The book is Elliot's first book, and arguably her most well known work.The title of the book is derived from the fourth stanza of the hymn "We Rest on Thee". This hymn was famously sung by the missionaries before the men left for Huaorani territory in January 1956. The lines read:
We rest on Thee, our Shield and our Defender.
Thine is the battle, Thine shall be the praise;
When passing through the gates of pearly splendor,
Victors, we rest with Thee, through endless days.
Elliot wrote the book while still a missionary in Ecuador. She wrote the book at the request and cooperation from the families of the five men. She was given copies of letters and other writings which were extensively quoted from in the book. Interesting to note, is that the original edition of the book was first published in 1957, or one year before the first peaceful contact with the Huaorani was made. In subsequent publications of the book, epilogues have been added to tell about what has happened to the Huaorani tribe since Operation Auca, and what has happened to the missionaries' families.
