0915684853. 236 pages, 8 plates, cloth, dj, very good. From the dj: This book demonstrates Christian commitment on four levels: It tells you about the backgrounds of five evangelical missionaries. And what brought them to deny themselves, leave their homes and families, and go among 'the most hostile savages known'-the Auca Indians of Ecuador. When the five men are cruelly massacred, it tells how the wife of one and the sister of another accept the challenge and carry on the work. What it takes to venture among the Aucas again, knowing little of their language and with the threat of their sharp spears ever present...Finally you will read how the Auca massacre and its aftermath continue to influence the church throughout the world to renewed commitment.
