 Who was Jesus? What was his story? What mark did he leave? What's your story? What will be your mark?

Join celebrity photographer and social artist Jeremy Cowart as he presents 16 compelling stories of people who are making their mark today. Their stories are just a sampling of the stories that all followers of Jesus can tell—stories from those in all walks of life whose inspiration is rooted in the truths found in the Gospel of Mark. And you'll be inspired to make your mark—whether through your occupation, your talents or your selfless love and giving to others.

Your mark may be teaching children at a school or at home, helping the homeless, or providing food to the hungry. Your mark might be an accidental mark, a reluctant mark, or an intentional mark. Whatever your mark, you'll be inspired by the stories inside this new book, What's Your Mark?

Become a mark-maker today, and make every moment of your life count.

This book includes
  • 112 full-color pages of Scripture, stories, and photography by renowned photographer Jeremy Cowart
  • 16 photos and stories of people—some names you'll recognize, others not so well known—making their mark
  • Scripture text of the Gospel of Mark from the bestselling New International Version (NIV) Bible

My Thoughts:
When I got this book in the mail a few weeks back I was surprised to find the book a square shape (minor bad thing about it though ;), but was quickly drawn into the book. Stories from people who are making their marks in the world and questions at the end of each story urging us to do the same. 
I loved the bright pictures and how it took the book of Mark intertwined with the story, letting you read through a whole book of the Bible, along with reading some great stories. 
Something I think would be a great book to go along with devotions or just a book to get out and read.
(P.S I got this free from Booksneeze and I had to say that, because it's required from the company if I post a review :)

  1. Used to read all of Lori's books. It's been years now since last I read one - did you ever read her "Bride" books? Those were really cute.

    SO excited to read Rebecca St. James fiction novel this fall. Should be excellent. :)
