Awsome Dec 5, 2006
The awsome story of one mans journey to reach out and save a civilaztion. very well written and layed out. A great read, you feel as if you know Nate by the end of the book. A must read!!!
Inspiring, life changing story Dec 14, 2001
I just finished reading this book aloud to my children, ages 8 and 6. Each day, they begged me to read more. Our family was already familiar with what happened to the five missionary martyrs, including Nate Saint and Jim Elliot. After reading this book, we all felt that we were a part of Nate Saint's family, and we wept at the end of the book. The book was very well-written and very appropriate to read to children, but also very interesting for my husband and myself. In fact, about halfway through with my children, I finished reading it myself while they were asleep. Nate Saint's story was very challenging to all of us to fully devote our lives to Christ.
Wonderful, inspirational book! May 10, 2000
This book is all about a Christian man that gave his love of flying planes to God. This inspriational story about Nate Saint tells of his life, from his childhood, to his tragic death in Ecuador. Nate was actually a martyr for God. By the death of his friends and himself, he acutally opened up the door for others to minister to the savage Auca tribe. This is a wonderful book, I highly reccommend it!
