The End of the Spear

This new movie from Every Tribe Entertainment opens in select theatres today! I have heard nothing but great reviews of the film and I encourage everyone to go out and see it. If you aren't familiar with this film allow me to briefly summarize it.

In 1956 five missionaries were killed in Ecuador. Their deaths made headlines and their stories have lived on. Those men were Jim Elliot, Nate Saint, Peter Fleming, and Roger Youderian. "End of the Spear" is the movie based on their tragic murders and the mercy that their families showed the natives. It is a story not only about giving your all for God's Kingdom, but it is a story about the power of mercy.

Both Cal Thomas and Gene Edward Veith have written wonderful reviews of the film, which I've listed under Top Articles. This is a film about Christian missionaries and its success or failure in the theatre will say alot right now as more and more "Christian" or Christian themed films are being made and drawing a crowd. Your support for this film in needed, so go out and see this film, and let it spark in you a desire to read the numerous books out on their story.
