Beyond the Gates of Splendor

Overview

In 1956, a group of five American missionaries were sent to Ecuador, where they introduced themselves to the Aucas, a tribe of indigenous people who lived near the Eastern Amazon River. The Auca tribe was among the most violent societies on Earth -- six out of ten deaths among the tribe were homicide, and they were even more bloodthirsty with outsiders than they were with their own.

Overview

In 1956, a group of five American missionaries were sent to Ecuador, where they introduced themselves to the Aucas, a tribe of indigenous people who lived near the Eastern Amazon River. The Auca tribe was among the most violent societies on Earth -- six out of ten deaths among the tribe were homicide, and they were even more bloodthirsty with outsiders than they were with their own. The Americans attempted to convince the Aucas of their good intentions, but they were soon speared to death by members of the tribe. However, after word reached the United States that the missionaries had been murdered, the wife of one of the fallen men traveled to Ecuador to continue her husband's work. Within two years, a profound change came over the Aucas -- their murder rate fell by 90 percent, and in time, the newly peaceful tribe renamed themselves the Waodani. Beyond the Gates of Splendor is a documentary which recounts this extraordinary true story as Steve Saint, the son of one of the murdered missionaries, travels to Ecuador to visit with the Waodani tribe.

    Powerful Story Of Forgiveness And Hope!

    Just an amazing documentary of life! Great interviews with actual family members. Awesome photography and soundtrack. Was a great but emotional progression from the moment the lives of the missionary men were taken to the salvation of an entire race. Truly a moving, spiritual story of how the grace, mercy, and forgiveness of Christ can change not only us but those around us!!! Loved seeing how the tribe is doing today!!!!

    Amazing Film and Story

    It's not very often that a movie (or documentary if you like) comes along with a story as powerful and beautifully told as Beyond the Gates of Splendor. At the time (January 1956) it seemed like such a tradegy and waste of life when 5 missionaries were killed in Ecuador at the hands of the Waodani. This film goes on to tell the incredible story since then of forgiveness and love on the part of the family members left behind. Not only is this an amazing story but the film is does exceptionally well weaving loss, tears, saddness with an occasional interjection of laughter to help the viewer through to the end. Don't miss buying this. It will impact how you see and respond to those who have wronged you.
