Product Description

Thursday of Easter week, 1994, the most Christianized country in Africa became home to the continent's worst genocide. Rwanda, often idealized as the model nation for evangelism in Africa, descended into tragic darkness as Christians took up arms to kill other Christians, leaving over a million dead over 100 days. Emmanuel Katongole (raised by a Hutu mother and Tutsi father) describes how the Rwandan Genocide is a reflection of the deep brokenness found in the Church today - not solely in Africa, but in the West as well. Katongole helps us to understand how and why tribalism has unfortunately become an unquestioned feature in Christian practice today. He believes that by looking at what happened and why, we can find hope for the global body of Christ, and develop a Christian identity that bears witness to the hope of the Gospel and the peace of Christ.

Publisher's Description

In 1994, the most Christianized country in Africa became the site of its worst genocide. The tragedy was in Rwanda, but what happened was a mirror reflecting the deep brokenness of the church in the West. Yet by looking at what happened and why, we can find hope for the global body of Christ.
