Ignatius Press Led By Faith: Rising from the Ashes of the Rwandan Genocide

For three months in the spring of 1994, the African nation of Rwanda descended into one of the most vicious and bloody genocides the world has ever seen. Immaculee Ilibagiza, a young university student, miraculously survived the savage killing spree that left most of her family, friends, and a million of her fellow citizens dead. Immaculee's remarkable story of survival was documented in her first book, Left to Tell: Discovering God Amidst the Rwandan Holocaust.

In Led By Faith, Immaculee takes us with her as her remarkable journey continues. Through her simple and eloquent voice, we experience her hardships and heartache as she struggles to survive and to find meaning and purpose in the aftermath of the holocaust. It is the story of a naive and vulnerable young woman, orphaned and alone, navigating through a bleak and dangerously hostile world with only an abiding faith in God to guide and protect her. Immaculee fends off sinister new predators, seeks out and comforts scores of children orphaned by the genocide, and searches for love and companionship in a land where hatred still flourishes. Then, fearing again for her safety as Rwanda's war-crime trials begin, Immaculee flees to America to begin a new chapter of her life as a refugee and immigrant-a stranger in a strange land.

I wanted to experience her thoughts and seek how she realted to our Lord for all her strength. Also how HE will provide protection and safe haven for those who believe and ask. She did a marvelous job of expression and example.

I was thoroughly engrossed in this true story of living in the aftermath of the Rawanda genocide. This young woman's story of faith and forgiveness is a lesson for us all. I also recommend the book that comes before this one, "Left to Tell", which tells the before, during and immediate after of the genocide from her very personal perspective.
