Item description for Bruchko and the Motilone Miracle: How Bruce Olson Brought a Stone Age Tribe Into the 21st Century by Bruce Olson & James Lund...

The powerful sequel to Olson's best-selling missionary classic, "Bruchko," details his missionary work and events from the 1970s to the present.

Publishers Description

If not for what you have already done, there would be no Motilones anymore--only a few tattered peasants with neither land nor pride. You are pursuing the wisest possible course in educating people to fight their own battles with Colombian national society, while trying to maintain land and preserve a sense of cultural identity. With the strength and energy you have already shown you have performed miracles." --Dr. Stephen Beckerman Department of Anthropology, University of New Mexico

Bruchko and the Motilone Miracle, the powerful sequel to Bruce Olson's best-selling missionary classic, Bruchko, is a remarkable tale of adventure, tragedy, faith, and love. It shows how, despite incredible dangers and obstacles, one humble man and a tribe of primitive, violent Indians--by joining together in simple obedience--have been transformed forever by the sovereign will of god. This book, which details Olson's missionary work and events from the 1970s to the present, will stir and encourage the hearts of readers to serve and follow God passionately.

Community Description

Reviews - What do customers think about Bruchko And Motilone Miracle?

A Visit With an Old Friend  Aug 4, 2007
The original Bruchko book is one of my favorite books of all time. So when I heard he had written a second book which updated his story into the present day, I purchased it quickly. It was like getting reacquainted with an old friend. You see Bruchko grappling with the losses of Gloria and Bobarishora. You see his spirit rekindled after hearing a couple of the younger Motilones speaking at a peace conference. You feel his joy as the nation of Columbia recognizes that 420 acres of jungle land belong to the Motilone people (truly known as the Bari people).

The first 36 pages rehash the first Bruchko book, while the rest of the volume brings the story into the present day (with occasional looks back into the past).

You get to read the details of Bruce's entanglements with terrorist groups and drug dealers. You get his first person account of his brutal 1988 abduction by the ENF and his mixed feelings about the current direction the Motilones are taking. You get the sense that the younger Motilones want to modernize more and to forego some of the tribal traditions that Bruce has been trying hardf to safeguard. Yet Bruce is confident in the Lord that God will continue to raise up Motilones who walk in our Lord's trail.

If you love the first book, you'll definitely want this one, too. But this is also a good place to start even if you have never heard of Bruchko.
Truth is stronger than fiction  Oct 18, 2006
After hearing Bruce Olson speak over a year ago and reading his first book, Bruchko, I have researched every magazine article and other source I could find on the life of this very special man. So when the sequel came out I was very excited to order my copy. It does an excellent job of filling in the later years, right up to the present.

The gripping story of Olson's unorthodox life in the this site jungle challenges every stereotype we may have of missionaries. As a passionate and driven 19-year-old, he left a comfortable, bookworm existence in Minnesota and followed his God-given dream to travel to South America, where he was violently captured by a reclusive, murderous tribe of stone age Indians. And he has lived with them ever since!

Bruchko and the Motilone Miracle unfolds all the events that have happened in Olson's life with the Indians, who are now transformed into a productive and positive cultural force in Colombia. It covers the account of Olson's unbelievable response to his kidnapping and captivity in 1988 by one of the armed rebel groups using the jungle as their base of operations.

There are so many reasons why I was attracted to this story. It's a high adventure journey filled with love, suffering, resurrection, social redemption, and victory over evil. I'd like to see the movie made -- and made on a big scale, because it would enthrall audiences more than the most elaborate Hollywood action film. In this case, truth is stronger than fiction!
