It was both subtle and blatant, like the peace inside the eye of a hurricane. I could in no way resist and I in no way understood what would become of my 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.

The fascinating story of one woman's journey to faith, and the beginning of her road thereafter. This book includes some really helpful insights into the importance of gracious dialogue and warm hospitality in building bridges to those from very different ideological backgrounds. I found the jump from 'painful journey of leaving everything I knew and loved and believed in' to 'happily married, and homeschooling my fostered and adopted kids' an enormous quantum leap, and would love to hear the missing chapters of the journey, and could have done with less about why she thinks the plain singing of psalms is the only appropriate form of sung worship, but apart from that there was lots to learn. Biggest revelation: thinking through what was the 'sin of Sodom' - it's considerably more challenging than you think! A telling story of how challenging it was to turn from being a lesbian to converting to Christianity. Working through the sense of betrayal of her colleagues and also the patience of Christian friends who walked with her on the road to her conversion and beyond.
