    "No Greater Love" is about the lives and the love of five young men [Jim Elliott, Nate Saint, Roger Yuderian, Ed Mccully, and Pete Fleming]. You can read about them in "Through Gates of Splendor" and "End of the Spear." They loved a tribe of people [Waodani] in the Amazon rain forest, whose numbers were dwindling because of murders and revenge killings. In trying to tell these people about the love of God for them, they were killed. But God's love became known to the people through their sacrifice and what happened after it. Now many of the people "follow God's trail," and no longer kill, but help one another.
