    I simply could not put this book down. The experiences of Steve Saint and his family in reaching the Wadoni (sp?) defines what it means to be a Christian, displays perfect execution of the Great Commission, and demonstrates again the lesson taught by Jesus that there is no greater love...

    This is a great book. It is an unbelievable true story. I wish I was there to actually see the people and the places. The author, as a child, lives with the very same tribe that killed his father. He ends up having a love for these people anyway. How the tribe became "God followers " i...

    I've often read that a good author should be able to bring his readers to both laughter and tears, and this book did that for me several times. Not necessarily because Steve Saint is a great writer; with his heritage and experiences anyone should be able to write a great book. "End...

    I gave this five stars not for it's beautifully written epigraphs, pacing of plot points, or writing style, because honestly it has none of these things. It is a beautiful story that reminds you of what is important in God's economy. I think for Americans and other first world Christia...

    It has probably been twenty or so years since I first read "Jungle Pilot," the life story of Nate Saint, and I remember being disappointed that his death, and those of his fellow missionaries, were never fully explained. Thus, I was quite interested when a friend (who has actually met ...

    Very moving with some valuable life lessons..... ...

    An amazing true account of how the sacrifice of five men's lives changed a savage people group, and touched the hearts of all who heard about it. Told by Steve Saint, son of one of the men murdered in 1956. Includes photos of Steve and his family with the Waodani people, many of whom h...

    If you read the January 30, 1956 edition of Life magazine, this 2005 release by Steve Saint will cover very familiar territory for you. Nearly a half century following that Life cover story, Saint revisits the savage murder of his pilot-missionary father and four of his co-workers. In ...

    This book was not what I expected, but, I was not disappointed. It's an amazing story of change, courage, acceptance, love, hard choices, tough love, priorities, understanding,... and so much more. I was in awe and fascinated by each of the people we met in this story. I was int...

    "End of the Spear" is written in such a way that it feels like you're sitting down for a chat with Steve Saint in your living room. The stories of what happened next after five American missionaries were speared to death in the Amazon jungle of Ecuador in 1956 flow, startle, inspire, a...

    Another great book about the continuing story of the five missionaries speared to death in the Ecuadorean jungle. This book is written by the son of one of the martyred men. After his father was murdered when he was 5, his aunt, mother, brother, sister and him go to live with this once...

    Amazing read on how a person can be so forgiving despite what's being done to their loved ones. Nate Saint, one of the 5 missionaries who were being savagely killed in Ecuador in 1956; and his sister Rachel still went back to the tribe, befriended them and stayed there till a ripe old ...

    Wonderful, wonderful read. A very good follow-up companion to "Through the Gates of Splendor". I believe it is really is a necessary read to see truely how God was working through what on the surface is a real trajedy. It also shows that just because one does God's work on earth, they ...

    I was definitely left wanting more...I wanted to know a lot more about this fascinating culture, so for that alone it was worth reading, but the writing was not strong enough to keep me totally engaged. ...

    Very enjoyable read! This is a great reminder that our ministry, even if it seems insignificant (like ministering to a small tribe with no influence on the outside world) can be used by God in ways that will never be fully comprehended until glory. This book made me laugh so much, but ...

    End of the Spear, the book is much more honest than its movie version, which I felt was slightly over dramatised. Not that there is anything wrong with that. The book, while not as fast paced as the movie, was far more personal as it reflected Steve Saint's thoughts, fears and anxi...

    This is the true account of the son of an Ecuadorian mission pilot. The pilot and three others were speared to death by the Waodani natives after spending many aerial visits bringing them food and gifts. The son ends up living with and helping the same people who speared his father. He...

    I rarely give 5 stars to a book. Usually 4 stars means I really liked it. End of the Spear had a deeper effect on me. The story, which is a true story, about a man who became like family to the very people in the Waodani tribe that murdered his father and uncle, was so incredible that ...

    Powerful, funny, dramatic, and life changing. I loved learning about the Waodani culture and how they phrase things. I was moved at how careful Nate Saint was at making sure he did not take over but taught them how to do things only when they asked and made sure they could do it withou...

    Amazing telling of what happened with the next generation after the book Through Gates of Splendor where the son of one of the missionaries who was speared to death goes to live with the natives who killed his father, to help them create a sustainable life in the modern world. Gripp...

    After reading "Through Gates of Splendor" earlier this year (see #13 above), I really wanted to read this subsequent story written by the son of Nate Saint, the pilot who had died along with four other missionaries in the Amazonian jungle in the 1950s. Steve tells a very moving story o...

    An amazing story and so well written. Saw the movie many years ago, and am very familiar with Mr. Saints story. The insight into this culture that the Saint family so obviously loved and we in turn so loved by the people with whom they served and lived. Mr. Saint clearly could have car...

    Captivating, and faith building. It is enjoyable and worth reading. If you've not already told the Lord you will do whatever He wants, where ever He wants, this book could be life changing. (Tell the Lord that every day; He doesn't need our permission, but He waits until we want to be ...

    I was definitely left wanting more...I wanted to know a lot more about this fascinating culture, so for that alone it was worth reading, but the writing was not strong enough to keep me totally engaged. ...

    Very enjoyable read! This is a great reminder that our ministry, even if it seems insignificant (like ministering to a small tribe with no influence on the outside world) can be used by God in ways that will never be fully comprehended until glory. This book made me laugh so much, but ...

    End of the Spear, the book is much more honest than its movie version, which I felt was slightly over dramatised. Not that there is anything wrong with that. The book, while not as fast paced as the movie, was far more personal as it reflected Steve Saint's thoughts, fears and anxi...

    I rarely give 5 stars to a book. Usually 4 stars means I really liked it. End of the Spear had a deeper effect on me. The story, which is a true story, about a man who became like family to the very people in the Waodani tribe that murdered his father and uncle, was so incredible that ...

    Powerful, funny, dramatic, and life changing. I loved learning about the Waodani culture and how they phrase things. I was moved at how careful Nate Saint was at making sure he did not take over but taught them how to do things only when they asked and made sure they could do it withou...

    I simply could not put this book down. The experiences of Steve Saint and his family in reaching the Wadoni (sp?) defines what it means to be a Christian, displays perfect execution of the Great Commission, and demonstrates again the lesson taught by Jesus that there is no greater love...

    This is a great book. It is an unbelievable true story. I wish I was there to actually see the people and the places. The author, as a child, lives with the very same tribe that killed his father. He ends up having a love for these people anyway. How the tribe became "God followers " i...

    An amazing true account of how the sacrifice of five men's lives changed a savage people group, and touched the hearts of all who heard about it. Told by Steve Saint, son of one of the men murdered in 1956. Includes photos of Steve and his family with the Waodani people, many of whom h...

    If you read the January 30, 1956 edition of Life magazine, this 2005 release by Steve Saint will cover very familiar territory for you. Nearly a half century following that Life cover story, Saint revisits the savage murder of his pilot-missionary father and four of his co-workers. In ...

    After reading "Through Gates of Splendor" earlier this year (see #13 above), I really wanted to read this subsequent story written by the son of Nate Saint, the pilot who had died along with four other missionaries in the Amazonian jungle in the 1950s. Steve tells a very moving story o...

    An amazing story and so well written. Saw the movie many years ago, and am very familiar with Mr. Saints story. The insight into this culture that the Saint family so obviously loved and we in turn so loved by the people with whom they served and lived. Mr. Saint clearly could have car...

    Captivating, and faith building. It is enjoyable and worth reading. If you've not already told the Lord you will do whatever He wants, where ever He wants, this book could be life changing. (Tell the Lord that every day; He doesn't need our permission, but He waits until we want to be ...

    This will forever be one of the most tragic and remarkable events in the history of the work of missionaries and those reaching out to people in remote places. It was so interesting to learn about what happened long after that fateful January day, and the journey that God still had pla...

    Part biography of the author's father, a missionary to a tribe in Ecuador and part autobiography of the author himself as a young boy who lost his father to the very people he had been trying to reach with the Gospel. Heart-breaking, inspiring and very interesting. ...

    This is an amazing story and gave me chills. It's amazing the good that came out of what man thought for bad. It was a very long book and took me forever to read. I encourage people to watch the movie. ...

    This book and in fact the entire story are awe inspiring. How is it possible to learn to love your father's killer on such a profound level? How can you make him part of your family now? Steve Saint offers some radical answers and has truly found that path to peace from a tumultuous pa...

    Powerful and engaging - I knew little bits, but reading the whole book, and living it along with the Saints, was compelling and faith-increasing. Amazing to read about God's workings! Highly recommended ...

    Very enjoyable read! This is a great reminder that our ministry, even if it seems insignificant (like ministering to a small tribe with no influence on the outside world) can be used by God in ways that will never be fully comprehended until glory. This book made me laugh so much, but ...

    End of the Spear, the book is much more honest than its movie version, which I felt was slightly over dramatised. Not that there is anything wrong with that. The book, while not as fast paced as the movie, was far more personal as it reflected Steve Saint's thoughts, fears and anxi...

    This is the true account of the son of an Ecuadorian mission pilot. The pilot and three others were speared to death by the Waodani natives after spending many aerial visits bringing them food and gifts. The son ends up living with and helping the same people who speared his father. He...

    I rarely give 5 stars to a book. Usually 4 stars means I really liked it. End of the Spear had a deeper effect on me. The story, which is a true story, about a man who became like family to the very people in the Waodani tribe that murdered his father and uncle, was so incredible that ...

    Powerful, funny, dramatic, and life changing. I loved learning about the Waodani culture and how they phrase things. I was moved at how careful Nate Saint was at making sure he did not take over but taught them how to do things only when they asked and made sure they could do it withou...

    Amazing telling of what happened with the next generation after the book Through Gates of Splendor where the son of one of the missionaries who was speared to death goes to live with the natives who killed his father, to help them create a sustainable life in the modern world. Gripp...

    After reading "Through Gates of Splendor" earlier this year (see #13 above), I really wanted to read this subsequent story written by the son of Nate Saint, the pilot who had died along with four other missionaries in the Amazonian jungle in the 1950s. Steve tells a very moving story o...

    An amazing story and so well written. Saw the movie many years ago, and am very familiar with Mr. Saints story. The insight into this culture that the Saint family so obviously loved and we in turn so loved by the people with whom they served and lived. Mr. Saint clearly could have car...

    Captivating, and faith building. It is enjoyable and worth reading. If you've not already told the Lord you will do whatever He wants, where ever He wants, this book could be life changing. (Tell the Lord that every day; He doesn't need our permission, but He waits until we want to be ...

    This will forever be one of the most tragic and remarkable events in the history of the work of missionaries and those reaching out to people in remote places. It was so interesting to learn about what happened long after that fateful January day, and the journey that God still had pla...

    Part biography of the author's father, a missionary to a tribe in Ecuador and part autobiography of the author himself as a young boy who lost his father to the very people he had been trying to reach with the Gospel. Heart-breaking, inspiring and very interesting. ...

    This is an amazing story and gave me chills. It's amazing the good that came out of what man thought for bad. It was a very long book and took me forever to read. I encourage people to watch the movie. ...

    This book and in fact the entire story are awe inspiring. How is it possible to learn to love your father's killer on such a profound level? How can you make him part of your family now? Steve Saint offers some radical answers and has truly found that path to peace from a tumultuous pa...

    Powerful and engaging - I knew little bits, but reading the whole book, and living it along with the Saints, was compelling and faith-increasing. Amazing to read about God's workings! Highly recommended ...

    What a wonderful book! The audio was fantastic and the stories inspiring and challenging, loved it! ...

    This is a great book. It is an unbelievable true story. I wish I was there to actually see the people and the places. The author, as a child, lives with the very same tribe that killed his father. He ends up having a love for these people anyway. How the tribe became "God followers " i...

    I've often read that a good author should be able to bring his readers to both laughter and tears, and this book did that for me several times. Not necessarily because Steve Saint is a great writer; with his heritage and experiences anyone should be able to write a great book. "End...

    I gave this five stars not for it's beautifully written epigraphs, pacing of plot points, or writing style, because honestly it has none of these things. It is a beautiful story that reminds you of what is important in God's economy. I think for Americans and other first world Christia...

    It has probably been twenty or so years since I first read "Jungle Pilot," the life story of Nate Saint, and I remember being disappointed that his death, and those of his fellow missionaries, were never fully explained. Thus, I was quite interested when a friend (who has actually met ...

    Very moving with some valuable life lessons..... ...

    An amazing true account of how the sacrifice of five men's lives changed a savage people group, and touched the hearts of all who heard about it. Told by Steve Saint, son of one of the men murdered in 1956. Includes photos of Steve and his family with the Waodani people, many of whom h...

    If you read the January 30, 1956 edition of Life magazine, this 2005 release by Steve Saint will cover very familiar territory for you. Nearly a half century following that Life cover story, Saint revisits the savage murder of his pilot-missionary father and four of his co-workers. In ...

    This book was not what I expected, but, I was not disappointed. It's an amazing story of change, courage, acceptance, love, hard choices, tough love, priorities, understanding,... and so much more. I was in awe and fascinated by each of the people we met in this story. I was int...

    "End of the Spear" is written in such a way that it feels like you're sitting down for a chat with Steve Saint in your living room. The stories of what happened next after five American missionaries were speared to death in the Amazon jungle of Ecuador in 1956 flow, startle, inspire, a...

    Another great book about the continuing story of the five missionaries speared to death in the Ecuadorean jungle. This book is written by the son of one of the martyred men. After his father was murdered when he was 5, his aunt, mother, brother, sister and him go to live with this once...

    Amazing read on how a person can be so forgiving despite what's being done to their loved ones. Nate Saint, one of the 5 missionaries who were being savagely killed in Ecuador in 1956; and his sister Rachel still went back to the tribe, befriended them and stayed there till a ripe old ...

    Wonderful, wonderful read. A very good follow-up companion to "Through the Gates of Splendor". I believe it is really is a necessary read to see truely how God was working through what on the surface is a real trajedy. It also shows that just because one does God's work on earth, they ...

    I was definitely left wanting more...I wanted to know a lot more about this fascinating culture, so for that alone it was worth reading, but the writing was not strong enough to keep me totally engaged. ...

    Very enjoyable read! This is a great reminder that our ministry, even if it seems insignificant (like ministering to a small tribe with no influence on the outside world) can be used by God in ways that will never be fully comprehended until glory. This book made me laugh so much, but ...

    End of the Spear, the book is much more honest than its movie version, which I felt was slightly over dramatised. Not that there is anything wrong with that. The book, while not as fast paced as the movie, was far more personal as it reflected Steve Saint's thoughts, fears and anxi...

    I rarely give 5 stars to a book. Usually 4 stars means I really liked it. End of the Spear had a deeper effect on me. The story, which is a true story, about a man who became like family to the very people in the Waodani tribe that murdered his father and uncle, was so incredible that ...

    Powerful, funny, dramatic, and life changing. I loved learning about the Waodani culture and how they phrase things. I was moved at how careful Nate Saint was at making sure he did not take over but taught them how to do things only when they asked and made sure they could do it withou...

    After reading "Through Gates of Splendor" earlier this year (see #13 above), I really wanted to read this subsequent story written by the son of Nate Saint, the pilot who had died along with four other missionaries in the Amazonian jungle in the 1950s. Steve tells a very moving story o...

    Captivating, and faith building. It is enjoyable and worth reading. If you've not already told the Lord you will do whatever He wants, where ever He wants, this book could be life changing. (Tell the Lord that every day; He doesn't need our permission, but He waits until we want to be ...

    This will forever be one of the most tragic and remarkable events in the history of the work of missionaries and those reaching out to people in remote places. It was so interesting to learn about what happened long after that fateful January day, and the journey that God still had pla...

    Part biography of the author's father, a missionary to a tribe in Ecuador and part autobiography of the author himself as a young boy who lost his father to the very people he had been trying to reach with the Gospel. Heart-breaking, inspiring and very interesting. ...
