Led By Faith by Immaculle Ilibagiza

Original Title: Led By Faith

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 and friends, and more than a million of her fellow citizens, dead. As hundreds of killers hunted for her, Immaculee formed a profound and transforming relationship with God that transcended the bloodshed and butchery - a relationship that enabled her to emerge from the slaughter with a spirit purged of hatred and a heart brimming with forgiveness. Immaculee's astonishing story of survival was documented in her first book (with Steve Erwin), 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 fights to survive and find meaning and purpose in the aftermath of the genocide. It is the story of a nave and vulnerable young woman, orphaned and alone, navigating 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. She struggles along with her country to heal from the wounds of war and to keep hope, love, and forgiveness alive, then eventually emigrates to America to begin a new chapter of her life - a stranger in a strange land. With the same courage and faith in God that led her through the darkness of genocide, Immaculee discovers a new life that surpasses anything she could have imagined while growing up in a tiny village in one of Africa's poorest countries. It is in the United States, her adopted country, where she can finally look back at all that has happened and truly understand why God spared her ... so that she would be left to tell her story to the world.

Dare We Speak Of Hope by Allan Aubrey Boesak

Original Title: Dare We Speak Of Hope

The phrase "hopeful politics" has dominated our public discourse in connection with the inspiring rise of Nelson Mandela in South Africa and the remarkable election of Barack Obama as president of the United States. But what happens when that hope disappoints? Can it be salvaged? What is the relationship between faith, hope, and politics? In this book Allan Boesak meditates on what it really means to hope in light of present political realities and growing human pain. He argues that hope comes to life only when we truly face reality in the struggle for justice, dignity, and the life of the earth. Dare We Speak of Hope? is a critical, provocative, prophetic -- and, above all, hopeful -- book.

Our Lady Of Kibeho by Immaculée Ilibagiza

Original Title: Our Lady Of Kibeho

Before the atrocities of the 1994 genocide, which left more than a million people dead, the Virgin Mary and Jesus Christ appeared to eight young people in the remote village of Kibeho, Rwanda. They warned of the coming bloodshed, but prophesised that it could be averted if Rwandans opened their hearts to God and embraced His love. Their powerful spiritual message spread throughout the country, with thousands making pilgrimage and experiencing the miracles. Our Lady of Kibeho goes to the heart of these remarkable events. Immaculée Ilibagiza draws on her first-hand experiences, visiting the sites before and after the holocaust. There, she witnessed true miracles and had direct contact with the visionaries themselves. Her discoveries tell a powerful message of reconciliation, enlightenment and peace. This deeply personal and moving story is certain to help spread the message of love, hope and peace delivered in Kibeho throughout the world - a world desperately in need of Divine inspiration.

The Unburdened Heart by Suzanne Eller

Original Title: The Unburdened Heart

The word forgive is not, as many people think, one dimensional. It does not just mean let go and let God, a challenge for anyone who has experienced traumatizing abuse, injustice, neglect, or abandonment. In The Unburdened Heart, Suzanne Eller explores with readers the multiple facets of forgiveness found in the Scriptures, focusing in particular on the idea of leaving one place to go to another. Anyone can, with the help of God's Spirit, leave pain to find wholeness, leave regret to find purpose, and leave the past to live fully in the present. The Unburdened Heart uses the power of story along with biblical teaching to lead readers into healing and a forgiving lifestyle.

Forgiveness Considered by Henry J. Charles

Original Title: Forgiveness Considered

Book Explains the Concept of Forgiveness Henry J. Charles brings forgiveness into modernity as an integral moral imperative PORT-OF-SPAIN, Trinidad and Tobago (Release Date TBD) When the concept of forgiveness takes the center stage, most Christian and Western culture-oriented people usually relate it to its religious connotation, in every likelihood drawing on the ultimate expression of forgiveness in the death of Jesus Christ on the cross. Author Henry J. Charles, though affirming the roots of forgiveness in the Biblical heritage, considers the notion in its broader dimensions as an ethical imperative, one also capable of geo-political application. FORGIVENESS CONSIDERED first explores the word in its biblical and non-biblical meanings. It also clarifi es the several misrepresentations and misconceptions of forgiveness in ordinary understanding. In other portions of the book, the author deals with forgiveness as a special process akin to a fundamental change in character. He also deals with implications of forgiving and forgetting, and the idea that certain acts can be considered unforgiveable. The book finally looks to special geopolitical contexts, where nations attempt to come to term with histories of brutality and oppression, as a way to envisage and realize a more liberating future. He examines the realities of amnesty, forgiveness, and reconciliation in South Africa, in the light of the latters history of apartheid, in the hope that forgiveness and reconciliation may be accorded a much wider application in human affairs than repairing the serious breaches that occur in interpersonal relations.

Seizing The Nonviolent Moments by Nancy Small

Original Title: Seizing The Nonviolent Moments

Life is filled with opportunities to practice nonviolence. If we kept track, we'd be surprised at how often we get to choose a violent or nonviolent response to a given situation. Seizing these moments is a spiritual practice that shapes a nonviolent heart. Many people doing this together shapes the heart of a nonviolent world. This book is a humble and accessible approach to nonviolence based on the belief that no one is perfectly nonviolent. We are all works in progress. Each chapter presents an imaginative interpretation of a scripture story about seizing a nonviolent moment that sheds new light on nonviolence and its spirituality. Stories of contemporary peacemakers woven throughout offer lessons for living a spirituality of nonviolence for our times. Prophetic words from the US Catholic bishops emphasize the essential role of peacemaking in renewing the earth. Questions following each chapter inspire personal reflection and make the book a welcome resource for classrooms, parishes, and small groups. The more we seize the nonviolent moments in our lives, the more we are transformed by them. And the more we experience the power of nonviolence within ourselves, the more we believe in its potential to transform our troubled world.
