Steve Saint was five years old when his father, missionary pilot Nate Saint, was speared to death by a primitive Ecuadorian tribe. In adulthood, Steve, having left Ecuador for a successful business career in the United States, never imagined making the jungle his home again. But when that same tribe asks him to help them, Steve, his wife, and their teenage children move back to the jungle. There, Steve learns long-buried secrets about his father's murder, confronts difficult choices, and finds himself caught between two worlds.

Soon to be a major motion picture, End of the Spear brilliantly chronicles the continuing story that first captured the world's attention in the best-selling book, Through Gates of Splendor.

    " Can't say how much I loved this book! Had to remind myself many times not that it is nonfiction. Amazing testimony of faith! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Evelyn | 2/15/2014

    " Shows that God has a plan to accomplish His purposes which may look just the opposite to we who see only a single event rather than the big picture that God sees. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marsmannix | 2/10/2014

    " as an atheist and former fundamentalist, i was presently surprised by the humane tone of this memoir, another take on "Through Gates of Splendor". Makes me wonder what happened to Elisabeth Elliot to make her so legalistic. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 EronMarie | 2/9/2014

    " Great story of Jesus's love for people shown by missionaries. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 LuAnn | 2/9/2014

    " Excellent account of Steve Saint's involvement with the man and tribe of Amazon natives who killed his father. A story of forgiveness and transformation. Also talks about Steve's work in developing air vehicles for jungle transportation and helping the people deal with pressure from outsiders. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alice | 2/7/2014

    " This is a true and amazing story of how God works through tragedy for a higher purpose. In this case, it was to bring the gospel to a violent tribe of people called the "Auca" - naked savages. I am currently re-reading it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Beka | 2/6/2014

    " An amazing story that is impossible and inconceivable without God's love. Though the entire book is moving and eye-opening, I cried through the last few chapters. I was just overwhelmed by the events and responses that they had. This book is a must read for all Christians or for those who ask why God lets bad things happen. "

    " AUDIO BOOK REVIEW: The story: 5 missionaries are killed by the ultra-violent Waodani tribe in the rain forest of Ecuador. The family stays on. His son grows up among the people who killed his father and comes to consider them family. After going away to college, he returns with his own family, now including teen-aged children, to help these people learn to do for themselves the things that those of us who live in the modern world take for granted; things like building a clinic and learning use modern medicine and building an airstrip to get from place to place without requiring days of arduous bush-whacking. A fascinating people, premise and story. Less fascinating is the reader. I found myself getting tense and aggravated with his delivery and even losing track of the story at times because of it. For the first time I understood the difference between reading a book and performing it. The reader is accomplished enough but seems to have no sense of timing or emphasis. He rushes willy-nilly through sentences and paragraphs only to rather off-handedly throw away their endings. The words he chooses to emphasize often are so far off the mark that I lost track of what he was saying, trying to figure out what he actually meant or wondering why he made the choices he did. If you can concentrate on the story and not be picky about these kinds of issues, go for it. Otherwise, I would recommend just reading the book itself and making your own dramatic choices. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lisa | 1/20/2014

    " An amazing story. What you'll get out of this book probably differs depending whether you're Christian or not (I'm not), but it's still a deeply compelling story that will make you think about your own life. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brad | 1/11/2014

    " This book will challenge your comfort zone. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karen | 1/11/2014

    " Amazing, inspiring, if you ever doubt that God can, and will, use every part of our lives that we give to him....then you need to read this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amy | 12/28/2013

    " Excellent read on 3rd world missions. This book really changed my heart towards missions work. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jody Elliott | 12/11/2013

    " Fabulous and informative. I would recommend to anyone interested in the subject. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 John | 12/11/2013

    " An astonishing, true-life adventure story, told with matter-of-fact humor and understatement. If you don't believe God cares about you and can intervene in your life, this book may challenge your thinking. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Eric | 4/17/2013

    " This is a sort of 'rest of the story' for those who only know of the tragic death of Jim Elliot, Nate Saint, and their friends at the hands of the Auca (Waodoni) tribe. I was thrilled at the working of God's hand in such a 'godless' area. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Barbara Macmillan | 1/12/2013

    " The wives of these amazing men tell the account of how the death of their husbands led to the salvation of a tribe of people in South America. Amazing faith builder. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Aimee | 9/23/2012

    " good book. amazing forgiveness "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Annalise | 8/23/2012

    " I genuinely enjoyed the book. I have always loved missionary stories, but I especially appreciated this one. My family knew people who knew the Saints and the Elliot. The book brought much laughter and a few tears. It's definitely worth the read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mindy | 4/5/2012

    " I really enjoyed this book. This book really shows how anyone can change when God is a part of their lives! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Corrina | 1/21/2012

    " Great look at another culture struggling to reach a more modern-day spot in the world, while also struggling with their faith. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chelsea | 11/17/2011

    " One of the most inspiring books I've ever read. I can read it again and again! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Donna | 10/21/2011

    " Definitely a good use of my time to read this book. At some point I will watch the movie again and it will be more meaningful to me. The book contains much more information and covers and broader period of time than the movie. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carol | 9/30/2011

    " This was a hard book to read. Sitting in California reading about missionaries to foreign countries doing God's work and dieing for their beliefs is uncomfortable. This is a very moving book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cathie | 8/10/2011

    " A fascinating and inspiring book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rick | 3/24/2011

    " highly enjoyable. Rather different than the movie, both are good. Made me want to read several other books centering on this story. "

    " Didn't read but watched movie. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bethanie | 3/7/2011

    " Easy read and hard to put down, and what makes it even better is knowing that it is a true story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kdesoto | 2/7/2011

    " A very interesting true story. Steve Saint's father and 4 other missionary men were speared the the Auca's in 1956. This story is about Steve's trips along and with his family back in Ecuador. The people came to love each other. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Helbin | 2/3/2011

    " One of the best Christianity books for readers of all types. I suggest this for 15+. If you like history and religion then this book is one you want to consume again and again! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brenda | 1/7/2011

    " Amazing Book! It was Funny yet sad at the same time! I couldn't stop reading it!!! "

    " I have always enjoyed the story of Nate Saint, Jim Elliot, and the Auca Indians. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shawn | 4/11/2010

    " Although a little choppy with the feeling of a journal, this story is well worth the read. The Saint family set the bar high for those wishing to serve other people and God. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Winnie | 2/25/2010

    " This was intriguing. I read it some time ago and what was important was not only the commitment, but also the forgiveness for these "savages" which they acted out of fear.
    What a challenging message to any of us! "
