Based heavily on previously unpublished letters and diaries in Harvard's Houghton Library, Against the Gates of Hell is the riveting story of missionary Henry T. Perry and his life in Turkey from 1866 to 1913.

Gordon Severance, Diana Severance

Many of the issues Perry struggled with in his day have strangely become contemporary again in our time. Terrorism, ethnic cleansing, economic upheaval, the boiling pot of Middle Eastern politics, the civilizational clash between Christendom and Islam- the same ferment was stirring in the waning days of the Ottoman Empire. We cannot well understand our own times without looking closely at those of Henry Perry.--Timothy George, Dean of Beeson Divinity School, Samford University, and Executive Editor of "Christianity Today"
