A 2012 ECPA Christian Book Award Finalist "A hugely readable journey of cultural and spiritual discovery, sparkling with wit and wisdom." -Alister McGrath, Author & Theologian "this charming book ...will take you willingly on a highly personal and revelatory odyssey." -Christopher Schoppa, Washington Post "...reads like a fast-paced novel. I loved the humor, skillful use of language... I was totally captivated from beginning to end." -Marilyn Meberg, 'Women of Faith' BOOK SYNOPSIS Surprised by Oxford is the memoir of a skeptical agnostic who comes to a dynamic personal faith in God during graduate studies in literature at Oxford University. Carolyn Weber arrives at Oxford a feminist from a loving but broken family, suspicious of men and intellectually hostile to all things religious. As she grapples with her God-shaped void alongside the friends, classmates, and professors she meets, she tackles big questions in search of Truth, love, and a life that matters.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."  --Vaughan Roberts, Rector, St. Ebbe's Oxford  "...filled with prose that sings and paragraphs that beg to be read a second time.  A delightful read." --Trevin Wax, Christianity Today's "Books to Note"

Product Description: If the child is the father of the man, as William Wordsworth so famously declared, then what of the father that child grows to become? How does a daughter born of her mother s death, as in the case of Mary Shelley, navigate the politics of production and reproduction within a loaded language of mythological allusion between generational authorships? How do the visual arts perpetuate or challenge cultural agendas, such as portraying patriarchal anxieties about the effeminization of homeland by the foreign other , or attempting, iconically, to save the soul of a nation? How do parents both encode and decode our world? With the rise of the cult of the child in the later 18th and 19th centuries, Romantic writers of Britain and Europe, and eventually of North America, were perfectly positioned to explore, by extension, what it meant to parent, whether it be in within the domestic or the political sphere...read more
