The Secret Thoughts of an Unlikely Convert, Expanded Edition: An English Professor's Journey into Christian Faith


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.

    I read the first edition and the additions in this expanded volume. Both books are honest, raw and relevant. With all the media misinformation about homosexuality her insights are most welcome. She reminds us we were all born "that way," lost in sinful behavior, and God sent His Son to set us free. Her analysis of the sins of Sodom is discredits both the knee jerk conservative view, it was homosexuality, and the "Gay" view it was lack of hospitality. She asserts the cure for homosexuality is not heterosexuality, because both are practiced with sinful passions and practices. Rather, it is "holy sexuality," a submissive obedience to Christ in marriage. Frankly, I was disappointed the author pushed her denominations practice of acapela Psalm singing. The author is the consummate wordsmith. I only regret the original version did not come out sooner.

    Very Much a worth while read. Shows that to lead someone from to the foot of the cross, speaking the law in love works. Also "proves" that a true critical read of the bible, opens ones eyes to our sin / sinful nature --> making us desire the lighted path of the salvation through Christ. Sad that as the author realized her lifestyle was sinful - that as she went back to her old friends (still in that lifestyle) they rejected her.

    I was deeply impacted by this book. The view given from the non-Christian point of view is quite valuable. The fact that the Pastor that made friends with her, never preached the Gospel or invited her to church was an eye opener. He just became her friend and was open to talk to her about God and the Bible, with no judgment or condemnation. All Christians can learn from this. I was also deeply moved by her love and compassion for the foster children. All in all this is a book about the amazing transformation of a life. It proves that God is truly working miracles in today's world!
