His book stands as a major contribution to our understanding of the less than edifying role of the Church in Rwanda and other genocidal settings.

In a bold and nuanced analysis, Longman shows how and why churches linked to the state and imbued with 'a conservative, hierarchical, bigoted version of Christianity' gave moral sanction to violence against Tutsi, making it easier for people to participate in the genocide. Using local case studies, the book elucidates power struggles within churches that mirrored and also shaped conflicts in civil society. It benefits from Longman's long association with the country and his extensive research on the genocide for Human Rights Watch.
He uses sources that few scholars have tapped into, namely the communal archives which consists of letters and reports that local authorities wrote to higher ups at the time of events.
