Full Product Description
The genocide in 1994 left the Rwandan people feeling God was lost or hidden, a common feeling when people have experienced violent abuse against them. Because of the appalling slaughter of the genocide, Satan and evil are often perceived to be more powerful than God.
This book suggests a way forward. Although God was not responsible for the carnage of the genocide, he does want to be part of the healing of its wounds. Christ Walks Where Evil Reigned is a book of action, outlining God's plans for Rwanda and in all countries and communities like it that are searching for healing and wholeness.

Christ Walks Where Evil ReignedDiane Morrison, via The Good Book Stall
This is not an easy book either to read or to review, dealing with matters so dark and disturbing that the presence of study questions at the end of each chapter strikes an incongruous note. The book makes a creditable attempt to examine in depth the events leading up to, and the reasons behind, the terrible atrocity of 1994. It is a complex matter with many interwoven issues, and the authors handle it as even-handedly, honestly and comprehensively as is possible in a work of this size, including the roles of the church and governments without excusing any of the actual participants. The big questions run throughout: How to bring about healing and reconciliation in a people so brutalised and devoid of trust? How to handle the need for justice, the desire for revenge, the disillusionment with God and His people? With many fearing a recurrence of the violence, the matter is urgent, but healing cannot be rushed. The book ends on a note of cautious hope, tempered with realism. Rwanda’s recovery will be a long hard road for all concerned, and its fate holds lessons and warnings for many other places in the world where division and hatred take an increasing hold.
