Endorsements

“Through Eric's story you will hear about the beauty of my beloved country, Rwanda. His story shows how God's love and presence can overcome suffering and evil in our world.” -Immaculee Ilibagiza, author of the New York Times bestseller Left to Tell

“World Vision’s founder prayed, ‘Let my heart be broken by the things that break the heart of God.’ The world has too many orphans—children like Eric, children Jesus loves. But this story of horror and tragedy is also a story of healing and hope. This book is important; it teaches us that there is still a large role for Christians to play in helping Rwandan orphans. Read this book and catch a glimpse of the heart of God.” -Dean Hirsch, president, World Vision International

Publisher's Weekly

The author was 16 in 1994 when he fled for his life as Hutus set out to eradicate Tutsis in Rwanda. Those 100 days of genocide left more than one million people dead and also left 120,000 orphans. Irivuzumugabe survived by hiding for 15 days in a cypress tree, watching from above as Hutu killers combed the brush, killing anyone they found. He wondered about the fate of his family; he wondered if he would survive the lack of food and water. Fifteen years later, the author shares his story—and the stories of other survivors—with American readers. “I want you to know of my struggle so that you too may feel the call to forgive,” says the young man who in 2005 founded Humura Ministries to help fellow orphans in Rwanda. This story mirrors many told by those who came through Rwanda's genocide, yet the power of this book comes from a call to forgiveness worldwide as well as from the author's understanding of suffering. Americans can only benefit from this story of God's provision and grace. (Sept.) Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.

    It is so hard to believe that such a horrible thing happened to so many people in such recent years. This book spoke to my very heart and soul. I see God so much clearer after reading this book

    Irivuzumugabe's book is a wonderful account of both personal struggle and collective healing for those who survived the Rwandan genocide. He manages to detail the horrors of his experience in an intelligent and poetic way. "A price must be paid to hold on to bitterness; a price must be paid when we open our hearts to forgiving others. God wants so much more for the brokenhearted than for us to be paralyzed by sorrow and hurt. He wants us to lean hard into him, past the pain." (p. 162) Buy this book. It is truly a hidden treasure!

    I was not expecting this book to touch some very deep feelings that challenges me to forgive and show others what forgiveness looks like. Sometimes forgiveness hurts before it heals.

    This book is not just a story of survival, but of forgiveness, healing and ministry. Eric became a christian after the genocide and found that God was with him through all the horror of it. As he heals, he grows and shares the love, grace and mercy of God to others in pain, the true point of this book. A great historial snapshot of a horrific evil, one that must not be forgotten or overlooked.

    This book does a great job of not just making us aware of this horrific genocide, but the 2nd half of the book focuses on how God can heal and redeem any evil. It deals honestly with the struggles Eric has understandably dealt with in seeking answers to the question "why?" There is actually great personal application and this book certainly helps put our "trials" in perspective.
