Left to Tell: Discovering God Amidst the Rwandan Holocaust

Immaculee Ilibagiza grew up in a country she loved, surrounded by a family she cherished. But in 1994 her idyllic world was ripped apart as Rwanda descended into a bloody genocide. Immaculee's family was brutally murdered during a killing spree that lasted three months and claimed the lives of nearly a million Rwandans. Incredibly, Immaculee survived the slaughter. For 91 days, she and seven other women huddled silently together in the cramped bathroom of a local pastor while hundreds of machete-wielding killers hunted for them. It was during those endless hours of unspeakable terror that Immaculee discovered the power of prayer, eventually shedding her fear of death and forging a profound and lasting relationship with God. She emerged from her bathroom hideout having discovered the meaning of truly unconditional love--a love so strong she was able seek out and forgive her family's killers. The triumphant story of this remarkable young woman's journey through the darkness of genocide will inspire anyone whose life has been touched by fear, suffering, and loss.

Malcolm Gladwell Audio & Video

Malcolm Gladwell is a Canadian writer and author of many best-selling non-fiction titles about interesting and current aspects of sociology and psychology as they apply to the social sciences. Gladwell grew up the son of a British father and a Jamaican-born mother. While he was born in England, the author moved to Canada at the age of six.

Gladwell stayed in Canada until graduating college in 1984, with the exception of a brief stint in 1982 when he interned with the National Journalism Center in Washington, DC. The author later moved to New York City where, in 1996, he became a staff writer for The New Yorker. His first book, The Tipping Point, was published in 2000 and enjoyed critical success along with sales of over 1.7 million copies. Gladwell has received several awards and honors in addition to his success as an author. In 2005, Time magazine named him as one of its 100 most influential people.

In Blink, Gladwell's second non-fiction work, readers will begin to understand the inner workings of their mind; how they make decisions and why others might make different choices. Blink is narrated by Malcolm Gladwell and is available as an audio download or CD. One of Gladwell's later works, Outliers: The Story of Success, is available on download and explores the reasons behind high achievement in some individuals. Lastly, What the Dog Saw: And Other Adventures features an anthology of some of Gladwell's most brilliant pieces from The New Yorker.
