In God, the Gunman and Me, Jeanne Assam recounts the actual events that occurred on that ill-fated day in early December, 2007, when a gunman came into a 10,000 member church in Colorado Springs, CO, firing a high-powered rifle. Interwoven throughout her account are glimpses of two pasts that echo the same depression, longing, and brokenness. Two people with remarkably different stories met for the first time in church. At that holy intersection, they pointed their guns at each other. Similar stories. Different endings.
