End of the Spear
Okay, this one will be on the serious side. We just saw End of the Spear. Highly recommend it. It is powerful, moving, unforgettable, challenging, and overall very well done. It is beautifully filmed and the music is wonderful. For those of you that have read Through Gates of Splendor or other Jim/Elisabeth Elliot books, it takes a slightly different perspective because it is from Steve Saint’s view (Nate Saint’s son). What a challenge to pray for missionaries and to support them. It is very clear on the message of the Gospel! Half the profits are given to organizations to support tribal work. So, go see it! It is violent (but not gratiutous) and has partial nudity (tribal clothing or lack thereof) so I would not recommend it for anyone under the age of 12.
