Reviews - What do customers think about Marked for Life: Choosing Hope and Discovering Purpose After Earth-Shattering Tragedy?
personal religious experience, but no depth Apr 18, 2007
the book is about the author's conversion experience. But, it has little context to the rich texture of the high school Columbine or the massacre or who she knew before, how she saw that all.
Very Intresting Book Nov 19, 2006
I read this book recently and I think that it's a very facinating story of a survivor of the Columbine shootings, of how she went on with her life and found faith and of how she is reaching out to others in the years since the shootings. The only weakness in the book is that she doesn't talk about the aftermath of Columbine in much detail and what she thought of it, especially regarding that a lot of the people who may read this book has been following what happened for an extended period of time and this may disappoint those who would read the book for that reason.
Overall, I think that this is a very good book and that people who are intrested in matters of faith even during the most trying of times should read this book.
Marked for Life Aug 6, 2006
Crystal Woodman Miller is a brave young woman who took tragdey and turned it into hope, she took pain and turned it into a passion, a passion fo God, and life, and her book is an inspiration to everyone who reads it, and her life and presence is a testament to everyone who is blessed to read this. This book is so honest and true, that it is amazing, and it is a true example of love and strength.
Emotional and full of Faith! May 8, 2006
Crystal has created an excellent teaching tool. She identifies personal experiences and links them to a growing faith. She demonstrates how we can grow in faith even under tradgic situations as long as we have hope and belief in God. I will read this book a number of times because it brings one back to reality and the nead for God in our lives. Thanks Crystal for a great book. God gave you a tremendous gift. Mike Fielding
Inspiring! May 4, 2006
I was absolutely moved by this simple, yet profound story of a young woman who chose hope after such tremendous trauma in her life. Crystal tells a beautiful story of suffering, confusion, hurt and then perserverance and ultimately, hope. Her journey illustrates so well that God brings "beauty from ashes." I highly recommend this book to anyone - whether currently struggling or coasting comfortably through life.... this is truly a wonderful book!
