This was really good to hear the honest thoughts along the spiritual conversion and transformation from someone who has experienced many sides of the sin of homosexuality. It is a spur towards more loving thoughts and conversations about and with those struggling with this (and really all) sins. It definitely made me look discerningly at conversations with my loved ones who struggle similarly.
The author is a deep thinker and makes me reconsider some of the cliche things I often throw at an unbeliever, seeker or other. While it might be truth, the wanderer, like Rosario, likely is not ready to receive the package. Relationship is the key to a later opportunity to speak into that person's life
Rosaria Butterfield was an English professor at Syracuse University, so it is no surprise that her book is extremely well-written. I expected a story of her conversion and instead got a thought-provoking analysis of Christianity and the church that left me questioning my own commitment and obedience to the Lord. Throughout the book, series of questions provide an opportunity to think about what a church should be, how we do hospitality (or don't do it), what is marriage really, and how we think about education. I am reading it through for a second time.
