Born in the Republic of Burundi, a country that has endured many violent civil wars since declaring its independence in 1962. On April 29, 1972, the government killed more than two hundred thousand people from the majority ethnic group in just a few days, and then buried them in mass graves. The persecution forced thousands upon thousands of people into exile. Later, in October 1993, our people witnessed the killing of the first democratically elected president, along with members of his government and members of the parliament, as well as many educated people. The turmoil left our country with many orphans, widows, and refugees-and many rebels who wanted to fight against the oppression. During this unrest, I tried to join the rebellion in order to restore the beheaded democracy and establish a state of law. During my time as a rebel leader, I made it a routine to pray with different groups of people in our ranks. What I heard during these times of prayer, though, confused me. On several occasions, people prophesied that I had no place in armed groups because, "God did not choose you to be a killer, but a healer." However, my desire to be a deliverer of my people through physical struggle felt so intense inside of me that I could not understand how God would not want me to be an officer of the new army, or even a general of the National Army that would protect the people and restore lasting democracy in my broken country. In hindsight, I now understand that this desire was unfortunately only human passion, not from the heart of God. So I resisted God's plan and ignored more than one clear call to resign from the newfangled military force. Eventually, I even began to believe that those people who prophesied must have had ulterior motives for the words they spoke over me. I felt even more strongly about this after I also heard that three officers were spreading rumors I was a spy, a traitor, and an unreliable leader. I simply thought they were jealous and wanted my place, but time proved that the invisible hand of God had another plan for me. One evening in 1994, a group of killers kidnapped me and took me to one of the places where they slaughtered their victims. In that dark place, though, a spirit of confusion and unjustified panic came upon them, and they started to harm each other. I never even had the opportunity to try to fight them, and I don't really know everything that happened in the darkness that night. I do remember one man taking my hand in the midst of the chaos and leading me away to a secure place. I soon discovered that I had only sustained a few small scratches on my right thumb and right hip-truly a miracle, although I did not think much of it at the time, as I was just thankful to escape death. This incident did not discourage me from pursuing my goals in the rebellion. So focused was I on my life in the rebel military that I didn't even acknowledge God's hand at work in protecting me from sure death. But then one day, God finally got my attention. I was returning from a visit to one of our groups of combatants. Along the way, I fell into an ambush laid by the state army. They captured me and officially arrested me on December 14, 1994, on thirteen different criminal counts, including high treason. My time as a soldier had come to an end. But the story God had in mind for my life had just begun. You will find by reading this book what happened. On one hand, this book will take you into a therapeutic session of a sad, stressful and tragic event; and bring you back to hope, trust and edification to face every day life challengers.

#1 New York Times Bestseller • #1 Wall Street Journal Bestseller From Daniel Silva, the internationally acclaimed #1 New York Times bestselling author, comes a riveting new thriller featuring art restorer and legendary spy Gabriel Allon. It was nearly one a.m. by the time he crawled into bed. Chiara was reading a novel, oblivious to the television, which was muted. On the screen was a live shot of St. Peter’s Basilica. Gabriel raised the volume and learned that an old friend had died … Gabriel Allon has slipped quietly into Venice for a much-needed holiday with his wife and two young children. But when Pope Paul VII dies suddenly, Gabriel is summoned to Rome by the Holy Father’s loyal private secretary, Archbishop Luigi Donati. A billion Catholic faithful have been told that the pope died of a heart attack. Donati, however, has two good reasons to suspect his master was murdered. The Swiss Guard who was standing watch outside the papal apartments the night of the pope’s death is missing. So, too, is the letter the Holy Father was writing during the final hours of his life. A letter that was addressed to Gabriel. While researching in the Vatican Secret Archives, I came upon a most remarkable book … The book is a long-suppressed gospel that calls into question the accuracy of the New Testament’s depiction of one of the most portentous events in human history. For that reason alone, the Order of St. Helena will stop at nothing to keep it out of Gabriel’s hands. A shadowy Catholic society with ties to the European far right, the Order is plotting to seize control of the papacy. And it is only the beginning. As the cardinals gather in Rome for the start of the conclave, Gabriel sets out on a desperate search for proof of the Order’s conspiracy, and for a long-lost gospel with the power to put an end to two thousand years of murderous hatred. His quest will take him from the Ponte Vecchio in Florence, to a monastery in Assisi, to the hidden depths of the Secret Archives, and finally to the Sistine Chapel, where he will witness an event no outsider has ever before seen—the sacred passing of the Keys of St. Peter to a newly elected pope. Swiftly paced and elegantly rendered, The Order will hold readers spellbound, from its opening passages to its breathtaking final twist of plot. It is a novel of friendship and faith in a perilous and uncertain world. And it is still more proof that Daniel Silva is his generation’s finest writer of suspense and international intrigue.
