This is my life story with around 100 cartoons of my artwork depicting my adventures as I traveled across the planet.
I will take you from my home inside a chicken coop in Guatemala, to a meeting with the President of Fiji, from battling a spirit on top of a 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 through the eyes of a young doctor walk into an underground guerrilla camp in Colombia. All the while becoming aware of a loving presence from beyond the natural realm as I kept Bumping Into God.
The remaining books I have ready to ship are now a collector's item as this was our last printing.
The proceeds from my book support our work with special needs children in Nicaragua. My books are all signed, however, if you would like me to dedicate the book to you or someone else, just let me know in the comment box at check out, I will be happy to do that.
Comments from my readers:
Dear Erik: During my metro journeys back and forth across Prague I enjoy your 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. JOHN GODDARD IN PRAGUE CZECH REPUBLIC
Dear Erik, I want to publish it. I love, love, love, love, love your book...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 absolutely adored the The Puppy From Hell. Yes, I do want to publish it. It's beautiful and it's motivating. GITTA IN GERMANY, RABAKA-PUBLISHING
Bravo! I'm hooked and reading when I should be sleeping. Bravo! Garth in Texas.
I am in chapter 5 of Erik's book and can't put it down. I haven't read a book in an awfully long time that made me laugh and cry not even half way through. What an inspiration! PAUL L. IN SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA
Dear Erik, What a wonderful sense of humor you have. I loved your book! What an exciting life. It certainly held my interest from beginning to end. You are quite the adventurous soul… I laughed and cried with you and feel like I really got to know you. I also enjoyed your imaginative artwork. Sincerely with love, Joanie at Lighthouse Point, Florida.
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. RON IN COLORADO
This is probably the best book I've ever read, and I'm only almost halfway through! I would definitely recommend this book! YOUTUBE COMMENT
Erik: Less than a hundred pages to go and I really don't want it to end. Sign of a good book, right there. BRANDON IN TEXAS
"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." TODD IN DOS PALOS, CALIFORNIA
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! 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." CAROL in FREDERICKTOWN PENNSYLVANIA
Erik, 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 wonderful 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 have read dozens upon dozens of biographies and Erik's autobiography is one of the best and most entertaining I have ever read. IT WILL TAKE YOU THROUGH SEVERAL COUNTRIES AND DIFFERENT CONTINENTS. You'll have a hard time putting this book down, as one exciting scenario leads to another…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. CURTIS in WASHINGTON.
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 CORDY in MIAMI, FLORIDA
