"...reads like a fast-paced novel. I loved the humor, skillful use of language... I was totally captivated from beginning to end."Â -Marilyn Meberg, 'Women of Faith'
From issues of fatherhood, feminism, doubt, doctrine, and love, Weber explores the intricacies of coming to faith with an aching honesty and insight echoing that of the poets and writers she studied. Rich with illustration and literary references, Surprised by Oxford is at once gritty and lyrical; both humorous and spiritually perceptive. This savvy, credible account of Christian conversion and its after-effects follows the Oxford liturgical calendar as it entertains, informs, and promises to engage even the most skeptical and unlikely reader.
"...honest, entertaining and refreshingly free of superficial cant."Â
