Book Description

Nov. 9 2011

It's the greatest story never told: that of a boy who met Jesus and dared to ask Him all the questions that have consumed mankind since the dawn of time.
His name was Segatashya. He was a shepherd born into a penniless and illiterate pagan family in the most remote region of Rwanda. He never attended school, never saw a bible, and never set foot in a church. Then one summer day in 1982 while the 15-year-old was resting beneath a shade tree, Jesus Christ paid him a visit. Jesus asked the startled young man if he'd be willing to go on a mission to remind mankind how to live a life that leads to heaven.

Segatashya accepted the assignment on one condition: that Jesus answer all his questions - and all the questions of those he met on his travels - about faith, religion, the purpose of life, and the nature of heaven and hell. Jesus agreed to the boy's terms, and Segatashya set off on what would become one of the most miraculous journeys in modern history. Although he was often accused of being a charlatan and beaten as a result, Segatashya's innocent heart and powerful spiritual wisdom quickly won over even the most cynical of critics. Soon, this teenage boy who had never learned to read or write was discussing theology with leading biblical scholars and advising pastors and priests of all denominations. He became so famous in Rwanda that the Catholic Church investigated his story. The doctors and psychiatristswho examined Segatashya all agreed that they were witnessing a miracle. His words and simple truths converted thousands of hearts and souls wherever he went. Before his death during the 1994 Rwandan genocide, Segatashya continued his travels and conversations with Jesus for eight years, asking Him what we all want to know: 'Why were we created? Why must we suffer? Why do bad things happen to good people? When will the world end?' 'Is there life after death? How do we get to Heaven?' The answers to these and many other momentous, life-changing questions are revealed in this riveting book, which is the first full account of Segatashya's remarkable life story. Written with grace, passion, and loving humor by Immaculee Ilibagiza, Segatashya's close friend and a survivor of the Rwandan holocaust herself, this truly inspirational work is certain to move you in profound ways. No matter what your faith or religious beliefs, Segatashya's words will bring you comfort and joy, and prepare your heart for this life . . . and for life everlasting.

4.0 out of 5 stars Touching & Inspiring! Dec 8 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Great read! Immaculee writes in such a way that is breath taking, yet simple and humble! She is one writer that fascinates me in many ways. She is living her life for God, in the good times and the bad. Her other books are all worth a read! She has a relationship with Jesus that shows her desire to be the best Christ follower. I love that about her. A must read!

A good read, but I would have liked to have read more about the boy's words with Jesus than a lot of the other stuff.

Sorry, I really wanted to believe this book but couldn't even finish it. Found it slow and boring with too many un-scriptural pieces.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE BOY WHO MET JESUS Jan. 15 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book is beautifully written by Immaculee.
Almost a first hand account.
Any Catholic should read her works, especially this book.
As always, no prophet is welcome in his own home town,
just like Jesus who also was not welcomed. The obedience
Sagatashya has for our Lord is a conduct we all should have
always. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants
to grow spiritually. A very good read. Sorry it had to come to
an end.
