Led by Faith | [Immaculee Ilibagiza]

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. Immaculée 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. Immaculée's remarkable story of survival was documented in her first book, Left to Tell: Discovering God Amidst the Rwandan Holocaust.

Publisher's Summary

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. Immaculée 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. Immaculée's remarkable story of survival was documented in her first book, Left to Tell: Discovering God Amidst the Rwandan Holocaust.

In Led By Faith, Immaculée 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 naïve 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.

Immaculée 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, Immaculée flees to America to begin a new chapter of her life as a refugee and immigrant - a stranger in a strange land.

With the same courage and faith in God that led her through the darkness of genocide, Immaculée discovers a new life that was beyond her wildest dreams as a small girl in a tiny village in one of Africa's poorest countries.

It is in the United States, her adopted country, where Immaculée can finally look back at all that has happened to her and truly understand why God spared her life . . . so that she would be left to tell her story to the world.

    Story
    "Interesting perspective"

    I wasn't sure if I liked this at first. The writing is very direct and simple which isn't bad but sometimes felt a little flat. However, I did enjoy being inside her head. She can be a bit repetitive but hearing her talk about her faith gave me a different perspective into her Catholic prayer life and her relationship with God. Basically this book is following her prayers throughout her journey. It's rare to get to hear a person's perspective on their relationship with God that just presents itself as it is instead of preaching it to you.

    Story
    "One of the most inspiring books I've ever read!!!"
    What did you love best about Led by Faith?

    Immaculee's story is both heart-wrenching & inspiring. I'm so glad she read it herself. It helps you to feel like you were on the journey with her. She has inspired me to nurture my relationship with God & to live a life of gratitude & meaning.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes! I didn't want to stop listening! And when I had to, I couldn't wait to get back to it. I actually listened to it twice in less than a month...and now I'm listening to it for a third time.

    Story
    "A marvelous factual heartrending story"

    This story is an eyeopener to the facts of the genocide in Rwanda by one who was in the middle of it and was very close to being discovered and brutally murdered herself. Her ability to have genuinely forgiven all the killers, especially the man who killed some of her family, is amazing and powerful. This audiobook is very professionally narrated by Lisa Renee Pitts.

    "Left to Tell is a hard act to follow."

    I really liked Led by Faith and I am so grateful for the follow up story. It wasn't quite the Five stars that "Left to Tell" would get. I would almost recommend listening to this one first and then getting the original story. I actually bought Led by Faith before getting Left to Tell. It is a more peaceful, less on the edge of your seat story.
