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.
A powerful story of removing and a clarion voice needed in our world today!
I was compelled to purchase this because of an add that I was emailed, from a store that I subscribed to. I wasn’t sure why I felt so, but now I’m glad that I was. This book, as one may expect from an english professor, is very well written. It’s an intriguing story that takes you through a life that has been shown Truth, though it was not in line with what she has grown to believe. I will be sharing this book with my friends and family. I’m not sure that any of them will relate to the major issue this author lived with, but I think they all will glean something (or many things) from this book.
Thank you Dr. Rosaria Champagne Butterfield for documenting your conversion and struggles (as well as all things that contributed and worried you). I look forward to meeting you; or, I look forward to seeing our living Christ along side of you.
