Item Description...
In 1994, at least 1,117,000 innocent people were massacred in a horrible genocide in Rwanda. Here, Anglican Bishop John Rucyahana recounts the story of this atrocity and the events leading up to it. But this book is also the story of the new Rwanda-a country that has turned to God-and is being blessed. As his country descended into the madness of genocide, Rucyahana saw friends and family murdered. He survived to become a voice for harmony and healing-with a mission to rebuild his beloved Rwanda and to bring a ministry of reconciliation and God's love to the whole world.

Reconciliation after Genocide  Mar 28, 2007
In 1999 I went to Rwanda and met John Rucyahana, new bishop of the Anglican Diocese of Shyira, in the NE of Rwanda. The fighting was still going on in his area and we traveled everywhere with military escorts. Reading this book brought many memories back to me of those few weeks in the shadow of the three dormant volcanos where the Silverback gorillas call home. The unbelievable massacre of over a million people in the small country in three short months, the departure of any Western help and the devastating horror still shock our sensibilities. Bishop John has told the truth in this book not only of the slaughter of his people but of the more amazing work of reconciliation and healing which is taking place today on the killing fields of Rwanda.
A needed reminder to the Western world  Mar 20, 2007
"In 1994, at least one million, one hundred and seventeen thousand innocent people were massacred in a horrible genocide in Rwanda, my homeland in central Africa. We are still finding bodies--buried in pits, dumped in rivers, chopped in pieces." These are words from the introduction of John Rucyahana and James Riordan's book, The Bishop of Rwanda.

In his book, Rucyahana recounts a history of genocide in Rwanda, from its causes to its completion. On its own, it is a thorough examination of the events of the Rwandan genocide, but the author truly makes it a compelling account: he was there. John Rucyahana became the bishop of the Shyira diocese of Rwanda in 1997, serving his term during the violence. He escaped death many times. Friends and members of his family were not so fortunate. Today, he has committed himself to reconciliation within the country of Rwanda and has founded an orphanage dedicated to providing for children orphaned during the genocide there. All things considered, John Rucyahana is more than qualified to write this book.

The Bishop of Rwanda begins with the story of a Rwandan family stricken by violence. This is quite possibly one of the most shocking parts of the book. Rucyahana continues to explain the causes of this violence, as he begs the question: what would turn two peaceful, harmonious peoples against one another? The answer is surprising and outraging. From there, he gives a history of the violence from its rise to its fall. He ends with an explanation of the need for reconciliation and the current efforts toward that end.

Throughout this book, however, the purpose remains the same: to explain how, even through all of this violence, in the end God was glorified. Now that the genocide is over, Rwandans are turning to God as never before.

Due to its subject, The Bishop of Rwanda is a very violent book. All throughout the book there are graphic descriptions of murder and other violent behaviors. Thus, this book should probably not be read by someone under the age of 16. However, the overall message of the book is good, especially considering the current similar situation in Darfur, and I highly recommend it for those 16 and older.

It's always been easy to be complacent. It's even easier today, when much of the world embraces the concepts of freedom and equality. The Bishop of Rwanda gives the Western world a much needed reminder that things like this do happen and need to be stopped. More than that, it gives everyone a reminder that God can turn even a tragedy like genocide into a victory. - Peter Semple, Christian Book
