Product Description

When Carolyn Weber set out to study Romantic literature at Oxford University, she didn't give much thought to God or spiritual matters. However, over the course of her studies she encountered the Jesus of the Bible and found her world turned upside down. Her memoir, Surprised by Oxford chronicles her conversion experience with wit, humor and insight into how becoming a Christian changes and discovers everything anew. Rich with illustration and poetic references, Surprised by Oxford is gritty, lyrical and spiritually perceptive.

Publisher's Description

2012 ECPA Christian Book Award Finalist, and 2012 Logos Book Award ~ best book in Christian Living.

Carolyn Weber arrives at Oxford a feminist from a loving but broken family, suspicious of men and intellectually hostile to all things religious. As she grapples with her God-shaped void alongside the friends, classmates, and professors she meets, she tackles big questions in search of Truth, love, and a life that matters.

From issues of fatherhood, feminism, doubt, doctrine, and love, Weber explores the intricacies of coming to faith with an aching honesty and insight echoing that of the poets and writers she studied. Rich with illustration and literary references, Surprised by Oxford is at once gritty and lyrical; both humorous and spiritually perceptive. This savvy, credible account of Christian conversion and its after-effects follows the Oxford liturgical calendar as it entertains, informs, and promises to engage even the most skeptical and unlikely reader.

Surprised by Oxford is the memoir of a skeptical agnostic who comes to a dynamic personal faith in God during graduate studies in literature at Oxford University.
