Zarembka explains that Christians ought to live restoratively, using as his example the work of the Quakers in Rwanda who have actively worked to restore the country in the wake of its terrible genocide. He illustrates his points with stories of people who were affected by the violence in Rwanda, both Hutus and Tutsis.
