When a Man Loves a Rabbit: Learning and Living with Bunnies
ISBN 978-0-9780-273-0-8
Paperback, 138 pages

When a man loves a rabbit, it changes his perspective on a variety of subjects. Bruce Atchison once kept bunnies in tiny cages for his own amusement, considering them to be cute but witless beasts. Once he allowed his companions to roam free in his home, and after he related to them on their terms, bunnies such as Gideon, Harry, Esther, Zacchaeus, Neutrino, Pandora, Otto, and Buns taught him the truth regarding their species.

This book chronicles Bruce Atchison’s adventures with his house rabbits and the lessons they taught him. He found that, far from being stereotypically dull fur-clad carrot eaters, these creatures have well-defined personalities. He also discovered that bunnies could learn whatever was to their advantage and had a highly developed sense of fun. For example, Gideon enjoyed hurling rolled up socks between his legs like a football quarterback.

The bunnies Bruce Atchison cared for had strong characters, initiative, and a stunning ability to get into mischief. With the help of newsgroups, email lists, and personal experience, this author shares the fascinating and heart-warming knowledge he gained during his years with rabbits.

Deliverance from Jericho: Six Years in a Blind School
ISBN 978-0-9780273-1-5
Paperback, 196 pages with 6 internal black and white photos

Imagine being a disabled child, hastily sent to a boarding school hundreds of miles from home, and being kept there for months at a time. This was the fate of most physically and mentally impaired students half a century ago. Intellectuals and government officials once believed that the best way to educate “handicapped youngsters” was to segregate them from the able-bodied population, concentrating those pupils into large institutions.

Deliverance from Jericho: Six Years in a Blind School is the story of Bruce Atchison, one such child. Shuttled between a dysfunctional family and an uncaring asylum, his feelings and experiences are related here in a candid fashion. Through his partially-sighted eyes, readers are given a glimpse beyond the manicured lawns and impressive facades into the daily life of Jericho Hill School for the Deaf and Blind.

The author describes how he and his classmates learned Braille, used an abacus for arithmetic, and played sports, educational aspects which are not generally known to the public. Apart from those differences, school life was basically the same as in other institutes. Jericho had its bullies, its cliques, its out-of-touch administrators, and its deplorable food.

"It is possible for most sighted people to imagine total blindness. But how many can even begin to realize what it is like to live in the half-seen world of those with impaired vision? Bruce Atchison's Deliverance From Jericho tells of a childhood with just such limited sight, and how he was sent to a school for the blind in a city far from his home. Suddenly confronted by a bewildering environment of unsympathetic teachers, incomprehensible rules, unappetizing meals, and bullying fellow-pupils, he struggles to adjust and even finds some few precious moments of laughter. And, throughout his years there, lingers the always-present gnawing homesickness and longing for his family." ~ Ian C. Strachan, science fiction writer

How I Was Razed: A Journey from Cultism to Christianity
Paperback ISBN 978-1-62137-143-4, 240 pages 

But even if we, or an angel from heaven, were to be a preacher to you of good news other than that which we have given you, let there be a curse on him.
-- Galatians 1:8 (BBE)

Bruce Atchison Joined a house church in 1971, believing that the Lord led him to an elite congregation. Its teacher captivated him immediately with his supposedly advanced revelations from God.

Throughout Atchison's fifteen-year attendance, church elders chided him whenever they prayed but he "lost his healing." No matter how he built up his faith, nothing happened.

How I Was Razed shows how the heavenly Father saved Atchison from this lay minister's evil influence and led him to the joy of authentic Christianity. Though this author is almost blind, God marvelously improved his spiritual sight through the expositional teaching of John MacArthur, Hank Hanegraaff, R. C. Sproul, Ravi Zacharias, and many more.
