Carolyn Maull McKinstry was fifteen years old when a bomb planted by the Ku Klux Klan exploded at the Birmingham, Alabama's Sixteenth Street Baptist Church, killing four of her close friends. In "While the World Watched", we find out how this event affected McKinstry's life, not only as a teenager in a segregated South, but how it shaped her adult life. McKinstry's first-hand accounts bring this dark chapter of America's past to life for the reader. Not only a book recounting a segment of American history, this is a wonderful story of how forgiveness can change one's life.
