Product Description

Rosaria, by the standards of many, was living a very good life. She had a tenured position at a large university in a field for which she cared deeply. She owned two homes with her partner, in which they provided hospitality to students and activists that were looking to make a difference in the world. In the community, Rosaria was involved in volunteer work. At the university, she was a respected advisor of students and her department's curriculum.

Then, in her late 30's, Rosaria encountered something that turned her world upside down--the idea that Christianity, a religion she had regarded as problematic and sometimes downright damaging, might be right about who God was. That idea seemed to fly in the face of the people and causes that she most loved. What follows is a story of what she describes as a train wreck at the hand of the supernatural. These are her secret thoughts about those events, written as only a reflective English professor could.

This expanded edition includes more than 50 pages of additional content, including: two open letters from Rosaria, Pastor Ken G. Smith's story of reaching out to Rosaria, Pastor Kent Butterfield's testimony of Christian hospitality, FAQs, psalms to sing, and more.

    This book is a must read and is desperately needed in light of the general falling away of modern Christianity. Beside giving her own amazing testimony she speaks very frankly about our current Christian culture. I could not agree more with many other reviewers who say that it is deep, thought provoking, and challenging. This book is a wonderful breath of fresh air.

    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

    This book was very deep and thought provoking. I thoroughly enjoyed it, and was thankful to have found it after hearing about it on the radio.

    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.
