K. V. Turley on how good can come from even great evil.
Ten years ago an extraordinary book appeared. Left to Tell: Discovering God Amidst the Rwandan Holocaust by was a memoir of a survivor. At the time, there was a vogue for such memoirs, often recalling some shocking childhood experiences and recounting how the writer overcame them. Left to Tell was different. The experiences its author had survived were truly life shattering. What she had been left to tell, however, was not simply how she survived those experiences but how they had brought her closer to God and how, when all looked lost, the power of forgiveness had transformed her life.
