"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 Based on previously unpublished letters and diaries, the book provides an eyewitness account of the last years of the Ottoman Empire, years that are the foundation for the modern Middle East.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.
