Availability: Unrestricted (available worldwide)

Rosaria, by the standards of many, was living a very good life. She had a tenured position at a large university in a field for which she cared deeply. She owned two homes with her partner, in which they provided hospitality to students and activists that were looking to make a difference in the world. In the community, Rosaria was involved in volunteer work. At the university, she was a respected advisor of students and her department's curriculum. 

Then, in her late 30's, Rosaria encountered something that turned her world upside down--the idea that Christianity, a religion she had regarded as problematic and sometimes downright damaging, might be right about who God was. That idea seemed to fly in the face of the people and causes that she most loved. What follows is a story of what she describes as a train wreck at the hand of the supernatural. These are her secret thoughts about those events, written as only a reflective English professor could.

Relating to the world that God loves
An incredibly helpful book for Christians who want to discover how the secular world thinks and how we might relate to them in a way that brings glory to God.

One of those books you MUST read!
Gripping. Hard to put down (or stop listening to, in my case). I highly recommend the audio version because it is read by the author and she does an amazing job.
Whether you are a Christian, LGBT, or atheist, this is a life changing message written in an exquisite and honest way.
My only critique is that I get lost in the whole "worship debate". It seems to go beyond the scope of the book, though I respect her opinion.

A great testimony. Additionally Rosaria provides some insightful comments on particular Scriptural texts and thought provoking insights into christian culture and the way it is perceived.
