Publisher's Summary

What happens when a nineteen-year-old boy leaves home and heads into the jungles to evangelize a murderous tribe of South American Indians?
For Bruce Olson, it meant capture, disease, terror, loneliness, and torture. But what he discovered through trial and error has revolutionized the world of missions.
Bruchko, which has sold more than 300,000 copies worldwide, has been called "more fantastic and harrowing than anything Hollywood could concoct." Having lived with the Motilone Indians since1961, Olson has won the friendship of four presidents of Colombia and made appearances before the United Nations because of his efforts. Bruchko includes the story of Olson's1988 kidnapping by communist guerrillas and the nine months of captivity that followed. This revised version of his story is an amazing reminder that simple faith in Christ can make anything possible.

Excellent: sensitive Gospel communication

If you can tolerate the narrator you will love the story of a young man on God's mission with the message of his Son in the power of the Holy Spirit - couldn't put it down it was so exciting. It's a great example of picking up your cross daily that parallels Jesus leaving Heaven to live amongst us so that he could communicate with us as it says in Hebrews 1:

In the past God spoke to our forefathers through the prophets at many times and in various ways, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom he made the universe. The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word. After he had provided purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven.

Bruchko finds that the tribe God calls him to are seeking God and, rather like Cornelius in Acts 10, has told them to expect a man who will tell them how to get reconciled with God.

His sensitivity to working within their culture is wonderful to see an the results speak for themselves. You can hear Bruchko himself on Youtube but this book is one not to be missed.
