When Carolyn Weber set out to study Romantic literature at Oxford University, she didn't give much thought to God or spiritual mattersbut over the course of her studies she encountered the Jesus of the Bible and her world turned upside down. Surprised by Oxford chronicles her conversion experience with wit, humor, and insight into how becoming a Christian changed her.
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. Surprised by Oxford is:
Weber eloquently describes a journey many of us have embarked upon, grappling with tough questions and doubts about the meaning of faithand ultimately finding it in the most unlikely of places.
