Lifting Our Eyes Author-Signed Paperback


In the initial days following the unthinkable shooting tragedy at Virginia Tech, Beth Lueders met privately with dozens of Blacksburg’s grieving students, faculty, and community members. Chapter after chapter, Beth compassionately chronicles the untold stories and pain of the survivors. The freshman who heard the screams from the first murder . . . right next door. A teaching assistant who helped her students force the shooter to retreat from their classroom. The junior who played dead on the floor while everyone else in his French class was injured or killed. How do you bend and come back from such trauma? And where is God in all the loss? Lifting Our Eyes also threads together the bravery and faith of one Virginia Tech student, Lauren McCain, who leaves an indelible legacy. Includes photographs and resources for those coping with tragedy. Paperback, 250 pages.
