Book Review: Surprised by Oxford by Carolyn Weber
I devoured it in less than 24 hours. One things I loved about it was the way she took you through the thought process of her 'seeking'. I was delighted to read this book mainly for that reason. I was raised in a somewhat Christian home and my own journey went from weak belief to sanctifying my life with Christ and making Him the ruling force. I have unbelieving friends, and from conversations roughly understand their world view. But that stage from unbelief to belief is amazing and beautiful to me, and it was lovely to read about. I could see how Jesus was already working in her and calling to her heart, transforming her to faith.
This book also turned on the intellectual, academic part of my brain. I love Weber's writing style. As I said, it was hard to put down!
I received this book from Thomas Nelson's booksneeze program in exchange for my impartial review.
