The book chronicles the life of this English Professor in great scope and honesty. She reveals her heart and her innermost love of Jesus. Married with children she adopted with her husband, who is a pastor, is the most rewarding of all. My only nit about the book is that I don't like the font or the format, but it's presented like most commentaries she would write while in college.
I read the first edition and the additions in this expanded volume. Both books are honest, raw and relevant. With all the media misinformation about homosexuality her insights are most welcome. She reminds us we were all born "that way," lost in sinful behavior, and God sent His Son to set us free. Her analysis of the sins of Sodom is discredits both the knee jerk conservative view, it was homosexuality, and the "Gay" view it was lack of hospitality. She asserts the cure for homosexuality is not heterosexuality, because both are practiced with sinful passions and practices. Rather, it is "holy sexuality," a submissive obedience to Christ in marriage. Frankly, I was disappointed the author pushed her denominations practice of acapela Psalm singing. The author is the consummate wordsmith. I only regret the original version did not come out sooner.
Very Much a worth while read. Shows that to lead someone from to the foot of the cross, speaking the law in love works. Also "proves" that a true critical read of the bible, opens ones eyes to our sin / sinful nature --> making us desire the lighted path of the salvation through Christ. Sad that as the author realized her lifestyle was sinful - that as she went back to her old friends (still in that lifestyle) they rejected her.
