The Christian Book group will meet on November 16 at 7 p.m. at the home of Quin Kowalski.  Our book for discussion is “Through the Gates of Splendor” by Elisabeth Elliot.  It is the 1957 best seller that tells the story of Operation Auca, an attempt by American missionaries to reach the Huaorani tribe of Ecuador.  The missionaries were killed by the tribe.  The book was published one year before the first peaceful contact was made with the tribe and includes epilogues that tell about what has happened to the tribe and the missionaries’ families since Operation Auca.
