As a bible teacher, Ignatius K. Oliphant is truly dedicated to his objective of letting everyone know about the New Testament Christianity to touch and change the lives of many. Once in a while, he meets a person whose life changes his. To lend his voice to one courageous Rwandan woman whose story may be as inspiring as any gospel story, Oliphant publishes a biography, titled INGABIRE.

“I had previously thought I heard everything about the horrific event of the Rwanda Genocide until I met Ingabire,” Oliphant admits. “She told me that she had a story to tell, and she was looking for an author… no author in the world would turn her down just after having met her a few hours and learning a little about her past. I knew right then that we were going to produce a book that would change the lives of millions of people—and hers and mine of course.”

Oliphant’s book is the remarkable true story of Ingabire who was born to a life of torment, suffering, and broken dreams. She never got a chance to live a normal life. Despite all her shortcomings, family rejection, poverty, molestation, genocide, abusive relationships, suicide attempts, and other heartbreaking yet inspiring experiences as a fugitive, she miraculously survived to tell her story of great triumph.

Ingabire’s name may also bring to mind Victoire Ingabire Umuhoza, Chairperson of the Unified Democratic Forces (UDF)—a coalition of Rwandan opposition parties with a large base of active members in Rwanda, Europe, U.S.A. and Canada. The more prominent Ingabire was a party candidate for Rwanda’s 2010 elections. With a powerful name and story behind it, INGABIRE is no doubt an exceptional biography that can change countless lives by preaching about the greatness and strength of the human spirit.
