A life of commitment Dec 10, 2007
Why is a person's life important?
Enjoyable as this biography was, I struggled for a time to understand Nate Saint's passion for such a small tribe when he was such a skilled and intelligent individual. Couldn't someone else do the job?
Ask that question when you read the book, and you'll be treated to a powerful reminder that for Christians, life value is not found in name recognition or influence or popularity (though Saint's death brought those things about!). Instead, Saint highlights the truth that value in the Kingdom of God is determined by unquestioning, always hoping, joyful submission to God's will. As God directs Nate's life, you will rejoice to see people come to know Christ through Nate's commitment to serving his Savior.
The book is simple, clear, and wonderful. I read it when I was 10, and understood it perfectly. I read it again when I was 21, and enjoyed it just as much. I cannot recommend this book highly enough.
Jungle Pilot Dec 2, 2006
At first I thought this would be just another book about a missionary dying for God. Don't get me wrong thats great, but I've just heard it so many times. This book is different, I've heard this story my whole life, but reading it on my own, I had a different understanding. I really enjoyed it and I know you would to.
Brilliant. Jul 11, 2006
I've read some biographies of amazing men that have fallen flat. This is not such a biography. It is entertaining and interesting. Russel Hitt does a wonderful job at painting a picture of a very real man who had failings and giftings and willingly laid his life down for the sake of Christ. This story is one of many that have influenced my life greatly.
Dated; Timeless Jan 9, 2006
This is one of the multitude of venerable Christian missionary biographies, ala Through Gates of Splendor or Evidence Not Seen or Peace Child. It feels a little dated in its presentation and context, but it is contemporary to its subject, and with only a minimal dose of sentimentalism, this book provides a thorough and enlightening presentation of the life and example of Nate Saint - a seemingly selfless and cheerful martyr for the message of God's Son. Beyond the account of the murder itself, which is treated frankly, insight is given into jungle penetration method, the business of building a mission, and Saint's small aircraft innovations. Your missionary canon is not complete without this one.
Life Changing Book! Sep 14, 2005
Awesome, awesome true story about five missionaries (particularly the life of Nate Saint, though, obviously) and their families sharing the lives to the many various tribes of Indians found in the Ecuador mountains. I love to read biographies, however, this one has been one of my all-time favorites. I purchased another copy on this site to pass along to a friend.
