    The best book yet

    This summer I read Bruchko for summer reading going into the 8th grade. I had heard minor details about it and they were miniscule compared to Bruce's full experience. I go to a classical Christian school and we had to write an essay for our book. One of the paragraphs was explaining the biblical truths displayed iin the book. I am pretty sure that that was the easiest paragraph I have ever written because the book is teeming with them. Whatwas so amazing to me was the fact that Olson had absolutely everything that he needed, but I was devastated at the deaths that he experienced. God was truly with this man and Bruce Olson was truly dependant on God. This goes to show that God will give us what we need if we trust in Him.
