Rachel's Tears: The Spiritual Journey
of Columbine Martyr Rachel Scott
Darrell Scott, Beth Nimmo
Rachel Scott was a typical teenage girl who was incredibly dedicated to following and serving Christ.
Though she was mocked for her beliefs, at times doubted her faith, and constantly struggled with personal
issues every teenager faces, she remained faithful to God. Then on April 20, 1999, at Columbine High
School, she was killed for that faith. Rachel's Tears is a moving meditation on the life, death, and
faith of Rachel as seen through the eyes of her parents and through writings and drawings from Rachel's
journals. Her parents also offer a spiritual perspective on the Columbine tragedy and provide a vision
of hope for preventing youth violence across the nation.
