Item Description...
In every age of history, darkness has threatened to extinguish the light. But also in every age of history, heroes and heroines of faith rose up to hold high the torch of their testimony--witnesses to the truth of the gospel of Jesus Christ. On a fateful spring day at Columbine High, others lifted up their torch and joined the crimson path of the martyr's way. We cannot forget their sacrifice. A call is sounding forth from Heaven: 'Who will take up the martyr's torch which fell from these faithful hands?' Will you?

Disgusted  Jan 1, 2003
I recently read this book and I have to say that I'm very disgusted(especially with the attitude that the author has diplayed). I also think that this author exemplfies why Eric and Dylan didn't exactly like christians and I also personally have grave doubts that any Christians were specificially targeted. I am a Christian myself and I don't like Porter's attitude(especially towards Eric, Dylan and their parents).

The only reason I gave this book one star is because you learn a little bit about Rachel.

Mean spirited book by a Mean spirited man  Jul 8, 2002
I buy every book relating in anyway to Columbine,so I picked this one up too. Mr.Porter ,in my opinion, does not act very Christian in his book. He spouts many mean things about Eric and Dylan in the book.There is not a trace of forgiveness in the book, which I thought was supposed to be one of the main doctrines of Christianity.I think dear Rachel would be upset at some of the things said in her name. The good thing about the book is it does give quite a few details about Rachel and her family.That is why I give it 2 stars.
worthless, irresponsible propaganda and hollow rhetoric  Nov 9, 2001
"the martyrs torch" is a despicable distortion of the causes and motives of the two columbine high school shooters, eric harris and dylan klebold. the theory presented in this book as to why these boys did what they did is about as true to life and believable as the script of a 70's cops and robbers show. these kids did not hate christians alone, although they did ridicule them (along with everyone else, including white people) in the tapes they made for the cops. they hurled racial slurs and anti christian insults against the people they shot, yes, but anyone with half a brain knows that this was not what the attack was ABOUT. as is typical of individuals who have such naive and unquestioning trust in their personal or cultural ideologies and beliefs, the people who wrote this book do not mind distorting reality or giving people a false outlook on tragedies such as columbine and other events as long as it can be used as an argument for or a glorification of their so-lofty-and-passionate belief systems. eric harris and dylan klebold were not seeking fame when they murdered 13 people and then *committed suicide*. it is true that they had talked about how they wanted to be famous on the tapes, but anyone who has seen them immediately recognizes that what they are saying has nothing to do with a desire for fame at all, but a desire to shock and offend the people and the peers that they hated so much. and they were not doing it because they wanted to imitate a friggin video game. (what a laugh.) they weren't doing it because they were racist, which, if you really look at it, was not racism at all, but a hatred of the human race as a whole. they were doing it because they had been ostracized, isolated, ignored, and actively snubbed and ridiculed:even if you doubt that they were harassed and made fun of constantly as many people do at this point, alienation and loneliness breed hate just as poisonous and potentially dangerous as hate resulting from actual ridicule--perhaps even more so. i am not trying to defend their indefensible, heinous, evil and senseless acts which destroyed lives permanently and irreversibly victimized innocent people. what they did was absolutely wrong and in the end they were repulsive traitors to their parents and everyone else that cared about them not to mention the kids they massacred so joyfully and bitterly. but let's not try to invent motives that are so ludicrous and obviously constructed for the purpose of allowing the school, their cruel peers, and the inexcusable obliviousness and neglect of their parents to cover their own behinds that it is incomprehensible that anyone would really believe them. people who use a horrifying atrocity like this to perpetuate their religion and ideologies are, and the authors of this garbage fit the description perfectly, are on a moral par with eric harris and dylan klebold. and before you shed tears over all those poor kids outside the school after the shooting, crying, oh so sad!, frightened, doe eyed and devastated, just remember that while the media flashed the pictures of those Big Bad and Evil shooters on TV as often as possible, the kids who chose to pretend they didn't exist and made them felt worthless while they were alive are never going to be pointed out or made to feel ashamed.
Lacks Something  May 29, 2001
The Martyrs' Torch, written by Bruce Porter, Rachel Scott's Mother's Pastor has some good insights. His intervies with Rachel's brother on the night of the shootings is chilling. There is so much pain and raw emotion displayed. Even the content of his speecha t the memorial service inspiring people to lift the martyr's torch that the title refers to is very compelling. Whree the book starts to drag and lose its bite is when Porter starts to get preachy and give advice. This needlessly enlongates the book and takes away from both the heartfelt stories of Columbine tragedy and the over all quality of writing in the book as a whole. I recommend Rachel's Tears for a life changing book about Columbine and the tragedy of April 20, 1999.
A NEAR PERFECT PIECE OF PROPOGANDA AND sensationalization.  Feb 4, 2001
A gorgeous illustration of the unflinching, self-righteous judgement that created this book. Bruce Porter's uninvested this site review is pure genius.
