End of the Spear

January 8, 2006

Someone has turned the famous martyrdom of missionary Nate Saint and his 4 buddies into a movie. Will it rise above the usual “Christian crap” level? We’ll see. But it’s plain that deep pockets are funding it, since it it slated to open in lots of theaters on Jan. 20. In the meantime, here is the trailer and stuff.

For those of you who don’t know, it is a gripping story that was big news in its day. Nate Saint was one of the people who inspired me to become a missionary. He and the other four risked their lives to take the message of Jesus to a violent tribe. They were all killed. But that wasn’t the end of the story.

As an American missionary kid who grew up in Japan, I'm a child of two cultures, while not fully belonging to either. This gives me a sightly different view of the world.

  2. Hmm. Trailer looks good. Maybe I can drag Erick to the theater for this one.
