The Angels Have Left Us PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Angels Have Left Us free pdf Following the massacres that decimated Rwanda in 1994, the author carried out hundreds of interviews in the country and elsewhere with government, military and United Nations officials, pastors and church leaders, survivors, refugees and displaced people. This book focuses on the part played in these events by churches in Rwanda, throughout Africa and around the world -- sometimes a story of heroism and self-sacrifice, but too often one of cowardice, ethnocentrism and corruption. The author analyses the roots of the tragedy, looks at the future of a shattered church in a shattered country, and poses hard questions about what the church and the ecumenical family should do in a world where poverty, oppression and hatred are creating many potential Rwandas. On the tenth anniversary of the genocide in Rwanda, this book has been reissued, with a new preface and Afterword.
