Item Description...
Overview
In 1994, as his country descended into the madness of genocide, Anglican Bishop John Rucyahana underwent the mind-numbing pain of having members of his church and family butchered. John refused to become a part of the systemic hatred. He founded the Sonrise orphanage and school for children orphaned in the genocide, and he now leads reconciliation efforts between his own Tutsi people, the victims of this horrific massacre, and the perpetrators, the Hutus. His remarkable story is one that demands to be told.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A Must-read  Dec 29, 2007
This book is an awesome description of the treatment of people on Rwanda; the reactions from developed countries makes one realize how insular and selfish people can be. Everyone interested in world events and mission work should read this description of the genocide recorded by Bishop Rucyahana. It is also a great example of forgiveness and hope from people who have suffered so much.
 
A Compelling Book, an Even More Compelling Author  Dec 17, 2007
Having been blessed enough to meet with Bishop John twice this year-once in my country and once in his, I can tell you that this man is even more powerful than his account of those tragic events in 1994. He is truly devoted to his work-Reconciliation, as well as his school, which he gave us a tour of. If you want to know what has happened in Rwanda, I would suggest reading this book, along with "Murambi: Book of Bones.", "Shake Hands with the Devil." and "We Wish to Inform You.." for a more complete picture. If you wish to know what is going on right now in Rwanda, Bishop John is a very integral part of that process, and his book is a faithful portrayal of his work.
 
Uneven, but still compelling  Nov 30, 2007
This book, reviewing the Rwandan genocide of 1994, is a compelling read. Bishop John Rucyahana, who lost family in the horrific events of that year, brings an African perspective to join the many western viewpoints that have mourned the deaths of over 1.1 million Africans.
One item of note is that Rucyahana is not intent to simply identify systemic political issues as the root of the evil that was seen (though he acknowledges their role), nor to focus too narrowly on individual organizers of the slaughter. Instead, he reminds us that this event should keep before us the human capacity for unimaginable evil.
Yet simultaneously Bishop Rucyahana sees real hope and reconciliation flowing among the people of Rwanda in the wake of this genocide.
For all these reasons, the book is compelling and deserves reading as a story of how great good can be brought out of the most heinous evil.
On the other hand, the book could have used a bit more editing. At times, the text simply doesn't flow well, which is regretful for such an important book.
As supplementary background, an interested reader might also be interested in We Wish to Inform You That Tomorrow We Will be Killed With Our Families: Stories from Rwanda.
 
No one is blameless  Sep 24, 2007
Within a world of differing political opinions and cultures it remains painful to recognize the inhumanity of man that flaunts indifference to others at every opportunity. The contrast of evil and of love towards others is acutely apparent and as described in this book is an echo of history, and the reality of our collective existence. This book retells the ongoing battles we face, and the sense of responsibility that we each have to shoulder. Rwanda is an example. When they were challanged and forced to choose, they chose God and to love one another. This book is a difficult read, my suggestion; read the ending before pushing this book aside.
 
If You Want to Know What Happened...  Sep 7, 2007
Bishop John Rucyahana is Rwandan. He was a refugee in Uganda during the Rwanda genocide and in this book he illustrates for us the historical origins of the genocide, the reason that the plan succeeded, and the answer to the questions of reconciliation.

For each of us who care about how such evil can be possible in the world, The Bishop of Rwanda gives us those insights. Using true stories to illustrate both the evil of the genocide and the miracles of reconciliation, Bishop John ultimately tells a story of hope for the future of Rwanda.

If you want to know what happened, why it happened, and what you can do to keep it from happening again, this book is an excellent start. If you want to understand Rwanda so that you can assist in the reconciliation process there, this is an great text to begin your understanding.
