This book is Erik's life story including the adventures of the flutemaker as he traveled Central and South America. It is also a tale of the people he met and the fascinating stories they told.
Erik says, "I will take you from my home in a chicken coop in Guatemala, to the President of Fiji, from an ancient Mayan temple in a jungle, to the basement of an Argentine judge where guerrillas hid bomb-making tapes. We will get lost on a live volcano, feed a street gang in Costa Rica, play flute to a poisonous snake and walk into an underground guerilla headquarters in Colombia. All the while becoming aware of a loving presence from beyond the natural realm as I go Bumping Into God."
The proceeds from this book go to support the home for the Kids of Cascabel; originally 18 kids rescued from a garbage dump in Nicaragua.

I just finished Erik's book and it reopened my eyes. Sometimes we forget or don't see how God is moving around us.
This book is an inspiration and a motivation for ministry.

I'm just now at the "The Night at the Pier" in your book. Less than a hundred pages to go and I really don't want it to end. Sign of a good book, right there. Thank you and God bless.

"Reading Erik's story has been a totally captivating joy for me this past week. I was able to walk in his shoes. His, is a testimony that will transform many lives. I know it has for me. I even bought a copy for my son."

I play your flutes in the morning and evening... and to my surprise, my neighbors are still smiling ;). During my metro journeys back and forth across Prague I enjoy your thick book. Writing is drawing with the mind. As a former magazine editor and Time freelancer, your writing is an inspiration. I enjoy your refreshingly fluid way of storytelling. Thanks! Peace and blessings.

Who knew Erik the flutemaker to be a gifted author as well as an excellent musician! I was totally entertained by his book, "Bumping Into God." His bizarre life experiences and goofy illustrations had me turning pages anxiously wanting to know, "What happened next?" What an amazing life saga! So much more entertaining than watching Ozzie Ozborne on reality TV. Erik's descriptive narratives of all his escapades are told with such a flare that I felt like I was his best friend and that we were passengers seated together on the "bus of life." Even though we all have our own stories, Erik's are truly more entertaining than most. I'm so fortunate to have bumped into Erik and discovered "Bumping Into God."

What an adventure!! I laughed out loud, and cried while taken on a roller coaster ride of adventures - not only those of the flutemaker, but so many stories meticulously recorded of others... So candid and open, refreshing and inspiring! From the wonderfull stories, to the cartoon artwork, this is a journey that I am thrilled to have lived vicariously through the pages of Bumping into God!

I love, love, love, love, love your book... Big potential to do good. It's really and literally wonder-ful!!!
There are no words to express how much I love it, how much I feel blessed.
This is not a book you only read. This is a book to transform people... many tears have run from my cheeks and laughter has enlightened my soul from the moment I opened it!
I wept hot tears with you on your flight to L.A, I feared for you being haunted by the mob. I absolutley adored the the puppy from hell.
Yes, I do want to publish it. It's beautiful and it's motivating.

I have read dozens upon dozens of biographies and continually read biographical stories. Erik's autobiography is one of the best and most entertaining I have ever read.
It will take you on a spiritual journey, traveling through several countries and different continents, following Erik from his early childhood to this present day. You might be tempted to forget at times that what you are reading is not a great fictional adventure, but is actually a true story of one man's road to truth.
You'll have a hard time putting this book down, as one exciting scenario leads to another and yet another. With the book's unpredictability you'll have a hard time knowing what is around the next corner.
I laughed and cried as I went with Erik on his life journey. I thought I knew this man they call Erik the Flute Maker before reading his autobiography, but what I read blew me away. He had never told me how full and exciting, many times dangerous, his life has been.
I cannot recommend this book enough. I hope and pray that everyone who gets the chance to read Bumping Into God does so. I'm sure they won't be disappointed.

I purchased Erik's book on a Sunday morning and I started reading it Sunday evening and I finished it on Thursday morning. I couldn't put it down. It is a wonderful book. I've read hundreds of books and Erik's book is right up there as one of the best. It is very well written and not only tells Erik's story but there are many other testimonies of what God has done in other peoples lives. Amazing and wonderful testimonies of God's miracles. This book made me laugh and it made me cry. I will recommend this book to all my friends
