Summary

For Bruce Olson it meant capture, disease, terror, loneliness and torture. But what he discovered by trial and error has revolutionized the world of missions. Living with the Motilone Indians since 1961, Olson's efforts have also won him the friendship of four presidents of Colombia and appearances before the United Nations. This updated edition of Bruchko includes the story of his 1988 kidnapping by communist guerrillas and the ten months of captivity that followed. Bruce Olson's story will amaze you and remind you that simple faith in Christ can make anything possible. Book jacket.
