Book Review of
Jungle Pilot The Story of Nate Saint, Martyred Missionary to Ecuador
Even after 60 years, the account of missionary pilot Nate Saint and his four friends martyred in Ecuador by the Auca tribe remains an inspiration. Not only is the story itself an edge-of-your-seat adventure, but Saint’s life story also grips readers and compels them to consider how they can live fully abandoned to God.
Jungle Pilot is the story of Nate Saint the pilot who died in the jungle with Jim Elliot when they were trying to preach the gospel to the Auca tribe. I think that this is a great story that should be read. It is about sacrifice and also love for the Savior. It is great to read another side and also have his son help write it.
If you have read about Jim Elliot, then you should pick up this book to see the story from a different angle and find another Godly man who gave his life to bring people to Christ.
This is one of the best missionary biographies that I have read. Years ago I read quite a few books on Jim Elliot, but I didn’t read this book about Nate Saint until more recently. This is a great Christian biography and would be a good book for high schoolers to read.
