Jan van Butselaar, who lived and worked in Rwanda for many years, reviews Timothy Longman’s book Christianity and Genocide. He describes his experience of church life in the country between 1975 and 1983, and he contests Longman’s view of the 1994 genocide and what he sees as a blanket condemnation of the role of Christian institutions and leaders in it. Longman responds by unpacking the different understandings of the genocide which he and Butselaar have, before restating and explaining further his main argument in relation to the role of Christian churches in the genocide in Rwanda. Résumé Jan van Butselaar, qui a vécu et travaillé plusieurs années au Rwanda, fait un compte-rendu du livre de Timothy Longman Christianity and Genocide. Il y décrit son expérience de la vie de l’église au Rwanda entre 1975 et 1983, et il conteste l’analyse faite par Longman du génocide de 1994 et de ce qu’il voit comme une condamnation indiscriminée du rôle des institutions chrétiennes et de leurs responsables. Longman répond ensuite à Jan van Butselaar en expliquant les approches différentes que Butselaar et lui ont du génocide, avant de réitérer et expliquer plus précisément son argument à propos du rôle des institutions chrétiennes dans le génocide au Rwanda
