Thousands; or ‘I have set the land before you’.


A brief biography of missionary Bruce Rattray, who saw thousands of people enter the Christian church in the jungles of Kalimantan, Indonesia.

For this book, I interviewed Bruce for three weeks just before his death, and then re-wrote an existing typescript from the prolific and popular WEC author Stewart Dinnen.

Underneath the story of a truly huge and miracle-filled movement to the Christian faith is another story of love found, mislaid and found again. I cried along with Bruce retelling the story. Published by WEC Publications in 2010. Thanks to Bruce and Annette’s family, a slightly amended second edition with a new cover and title was produced in Australia and is now widely available as below. I’m really pleased to see the book with a fresh lease of life.
