BATTEN DOWN THE HATCHES was not written in the sterile atmosphere of a library, but in the storm following the horror of a murder. In one of our nation's most famous driveway shootings, a gunman ended Bob Scott's life. From the New York Times to the San Francisco Chronicle, the media recounted the events of Bob's murder. Pat, his dear wife of many years, witnessed the moment of terror. There followed a funeral, the loving support of Christian and non-Christian friends, a murder trial, and a remarkable story of a woman living through one of the most dangerous storms of life. This is uniquely Pat Scott's story. No one else can tell it.
Women wanting to learn through real-life experiences how to be better prepared for the inevitable times of tragedy, pain, and challenges can gain much encouragement and Bibllical guidance from this study. The book is usable for ladies' classes as it provides a Leader's Guide with questions and discussion ideas.
