My review:
    I wasn't sure what to expect when I requested this book. It sounded like a book just full of pictures, but it is not. The book is pretty neat. It is easy to read, and is pretty much Scripture from the book of Mark and bios of ordinary people who are accomplishing something for God. I enjoyed reading it, and it should help those who read it to be encouraged that they can accomplish something also in life and make their mark.
