No Compromise
by Melody and David Hazard
Word books ISBN 0-85009-318-X

This is the life story of Keith Green. Keith Green had a major effect on me during my student days.

She said Yes
by Misty Bernall
Plough Publishing ISBN 0-87486-987-0

"In a perverse celebration of Hitler's birthday, two heavily armed students stormed through a Colorado school on April 20, 1999, killing as many people as they could. Confronting 17-year-old Cassie Bernall, they put a gun to her head and asked:'Do you believe in God?' She said 'Yes'. The killer laughed and pulled the trigger."

Yes there are questions about if it happened as above, but I believe there is sufficient witnesses to say it did. To me Cassie Bernall is a modern martyr and role model. You can't say that of many 17-year-old's.
