The Secret Thoughts of an Unlikely Convert
The Secret Thoughts of an Unlikely Convert: An English Professor's Journey Into Christian Faith | Rosaria Champagne Butterfield
5 posts | 8 read | 10 to read
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. There, her partner rehabilitated abandoned and abused dogs. In the community, Rosaria was involved in volunteer work. At the university, she was a respected advisor of students and her department's curriculum. And then, in her late 30s, Rosaria encountered something that turned her world upside down -- the idea that Christianity, a religion that she had regarded as problematic and sometimes downright damaging, might be right about who God was, an idea that flew 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. - Publisher.

Very interesting book. It's written from the perspective of a former lesbian about her conversion to Christianity. I don't necessarily agree with every aspect of it, but it proves how powerful God and His Word are. Such a great book to challenge your current perspective.

I had heard about this book before, but never read it until now. It is the thoughts of a former liberal college professor (who happened also to be lesbian) as she learned about Jesus. While that part could be considered a Wow! kinda conversion, it is really about one person's road to being saved. It could be anyone really. Straight, gay, conservative, liberal, young, old - you get the idea. There are fantastic and deep takeaways from this 5⭐️

Started this today. It might be controversial to some. I'm learning a lot on how to show Christ's love to those who feel Christians are hypocritical and bigoted. I never want anyone to think I'm any better than they are.

underthebelljar Sounds intriguing. I'd like to see what you think of it. 5y
