Rachel's Tears: 10th Anniversary Edition
The Spiritual Journey of Columbine Martyr Rachel Scott

By Beth Nimmo and Darrell Scott

Shots rang out on the campus of Columbine High School in Littleton, Colorado the morning of April 20, 1999. Rachel Joy Scott was eating lunch with a friend, Richard Castaldo, just outside the school. She was shot and injured. The gunman, a fellow student, asked her if she still believed in God. She answered "You know I do." She was shot again, at point blank range to her head. Fatal.

After her death, journals Rachel had kept were found both in her home and in the backpack she had been wearing that fatal morning now bearing the scar of a bullet hole. These journals are the basis for Rachel's Tears: The Spiritual Journey of Columbine Martyr Rachel Scott, 10th Anniversary Edition.

Rachel's Tears will take you on an utterly fascinating journey into the life, love, heart and soul of Rachel Joy Scott. You will become Rachel's friend and confidant as you read actual excerpts from her journal in her handwriting. You will feel excitement. You will feel pain. You will feel confusion. You will feel peer pressure. You will feel love. And above all, you will feel faith. Rachel's faith. And passion for Jesus Christ. It will blow you away. It will move you, especially when you learn how faith prepared her for martyrdom.

A must read.
