Item Description...
"Against the Gates of Hell" is a riveting story of missionary Henry T. Perry and his life in Turkey from 1866 to 1913. Based on previously unpublished letters and diaries, the book provides an eyewitness account of the last years of the Ottoman Empire, years that are the foundation for the modern Middle East. "Against the Gates of Hell" also provides a new witness to the Armenian massacres of 1894-1896 and the even more devastating ethnic cleansing of 1915. They also contain historical testimonies of Moslem/Christian relations that have assumed renewed importance since the events of September 11, 2001.

The Turkey of the Ottoman Empire was a Moslem state, and Perry frequently used his linguistic and diplomatic skills to protect the growing Christian community. Perrys diaries and letters describe the horrors of the Armenian massacres, the Christian witness of the martyrs, the massive relief effort that he administered for the widows and orphans, and his personal commitment to love friend and enemy alike.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Against the Gates of Hell  Mar 5, 2004
Against the Gates of Hell is an inspiring revview of the life of a Christian missionary serving in Turkey from the 1860's to the end of that century. The devotion of Henry Perry to the salvation of the Turks and Armenians where he taught, preached, established schools, hospitals and orphanages, during which time death claimed 5 infant daughters and his wife, is beyond under-
standing in the modern era.

While American missionary societies supported hundreds of doctors and missionaries who labored in the face of overwhelming aggression against the Armenians, Western world powers ignored the horrible slaughter of innocents by a dying Ottoman Empire,
The author documents the story with clarity, insight and specificity and brings to life events of 150 years past.
