Publisher's Description

A fascinating personal account of a libertarian feminist agnostic who discovered a dynamic faith.

Kitty Foth-Regner was a secular feminist who had bought hook, line, and sinker the ideals and objectives of Betty Friedan's N.O.W. Kitty's mother-a woman of faith-became sick and clearly was destined to die rather quickly. And the author began to wonder about whether she would be in heaven with her mother someday. This led her on a personal journey of faith. Heaven Without Her is Foth-Regner's personal memoir of how she found, to her amazement, that all the evidence points to Christianity.

Heaven without Her is a memoir of the author’s beautiful relationship with her mother and her heart’s search for the faith her mother held so dear.

Kitty Foth-Regner was almost convinced that it was impossible to know anything for sure about the universe or her place in it. Even though she had been reared in a Christian home, she never truly understood the beliefs of her parents. When her father died when she was a child, Foth-Regner decided to write off Christianity altogether, even though her mother tried to assure her of her father’s eternal happiness. She found herself aligning with the viewpoints of Buddhists, feminists, and relativists instead, looking only halfheartedly for answers. But years later, as her mother lay dying of the cancer that had been wearing at her for years, Foth-Regner found herself promising her mother that she’d see her in eternity, even though she didn’t know what that meant. Not content with blind faith, she dedicated herself to study. Her love for her mother and her curiosity about her mother’s hope and peace led her to delve more deeply into the faith she thought she had rejected.

Foth-Regner’s intent is to share her own search and the proof she found for Christianity. Each chapter of this book tells three stories: the first describes the events surrounding her mother’s death, the second explains the experiences that had shaped her spiritual views, and the third tells of her search for answers. In a prosaic style, she relates events and conversations that shaped her beliefs and her discovery about God, building a solid, well-explained case for Christianity by explaining through a seeker’s eyes the answers she found regarding the origin of the world, biblical prophecy, the “big questions” of life, and even Christ’s resurrection. “It took me until I was 47 years old to recognize that it didn’t matter what I believed: what mattered was the truth,” she says frankly.

Readers who are interested in finding some of these answers for themselves will find this an intelligent, conversational source. Even already well-founded Christians will find Foth-Regner’s use of apologetics intriguing and refreshing, and the story of her mother’s effect on her life is a touching one. No matter readers’ current spiritual positions, whether looking for answers or a simple reminder of hope, they will find encouragement in one woman’s journey to the truth. -- Lyndi L. Markus, ChristianBookPreviews.com

Publisher's Weekly

As a feminist and a successful freelance copywriter, Foth-Regner had a full and enviable life. Until, that is, her mother's fatal illness stormed into her otherwise manageable existence, leaving Foth-Regner shaken and distracted. In this engaging spiritual memoir, she tells her story of coming to faith in Christ by first examining all the plausible reasons for not doing so. Each chapter of Foth-Regner's spiritual journey is filled with examinations of the Christian faith from a variety of vantage points as she dissects historical facts, other religions' claims, scientific discoveries, the assertion that the Bible is inerrant , and much more. Readers will appreciate Foth-Regner's razor-sharp wit and the clever mind that she displays throughout her narrative. Most importantly, she offers readers her brutally open heart, full of wrenching pain, as she prepares to watch her beloved mother exit Earth to heaven. Many will resonate with Foth-Regner's doubts and unanswered questions and similarly find themselves rejoicing on multiple levels as she discovers inner peace with God's promise of the eternal. Foth-Regner includes an extensive section for further reading at the close of her memoir, which in itself is an invaluable resource for new seekers and veterans of the Christian faith. (Apr.)
