Summary:

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.

    The beginning of this book was very good, but toward the middle (I feel bad to say this), the author comes off as legalistic, judgmental and even a little nuts (specifically with regard to people outside her denomination). I appreciated hearing the author's testimony. Her journey to becoming a foster parent and adoptive mother is especially inspiring and convicting. However, I would not feel comfortable sharing this book with any of my friends who do not already know Christ. She did a great job relating her story to all people at the beginning, but again, by the middle, she totally lost touch with the average person. This book is very helpful to the church insofar as it encourages Christians to be more accepting of LGBT people, and insofar as it challenges Christians to seriously consider fostering/adopting children. The author narrates the book.

    A compelling story.
