Frederick: A Story of Boundless Hope
By Frederick Ndabaramiye & Amy Parker / W Publishing
“My God won’t let me do that.” In 1994 Rwanda, young Frederick Ndabaramiye knew these bold words would likely be his last. But when he refused to kill innocent civilians on a bus, the cords of God’s love bound him—serving as a tourniquet that saved his life even as his hands were severed. A gripping testimony! 240 pages, hardcover from Nelson.

Frederick is an amazing true story of one person’s account during and after the Rwandan genocide. It tells of the horrific events which were experienced by the author, Frederick, as well as the obstacles he overcame and soared above through the power and strength of Jesus. Frederick teaches the reader about what took place during the Rwandan genocide, faith in God, and forgiveness.
As I was reading the accounts of what took place in Frederick’s life, I could not even to begin to imagine what he had gone through (even though it was printed out in ink upon the pages I was viewing). Frederick stayed true to his faith in God, even when facing a horrific situation. Frederick did not allow his disabilities to drag him down, but instead they lifted him up and provided a much bigger purpose for him in this life. God continually remained by Frederick’s side in every step he took, guiding and protecting him. I also believe that God is not finished with Frederick yet, there are still greater triumphs in store for Frederick through his Lord Jesus Christ.
Frederick has inspired and encouraged me to stay true to my faith in God and know that there is nothing impossible when you have God by your side. Frederick displays the works of God throughout Frederick’s life and how God used his bad circumstances for good.
I highly recommend Frederick for all readers!
