World Visions founder prayed, Let my heart be broken by the things that break the heart of God. The world has too many orphanschildren 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

RikkiVermontAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5A surprisingly powerful and poetic book.September 3, 2011RikkiVermontAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Irivuzumugabe'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!

Sometimes forgiveness hurts before it heals.
Susan5 Stars Out Of 5Excellent! Well worth readingMarch 4, 2011SusanQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This 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.
noel5 Stars Out Of 5August 22, 2009noelThis 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.
