    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.
