You have to love a story where the main character runs off to grad school a staunch feminist agnostic only to return home years later as a born-again evangelical Christian. You might guess that such a transformation would take place in an environment saturated with evangelical Christians, but could you ever imagine such a thing taking place in the halls of academia? Such is the story of Surprised by Oxford. It is the account of one woman’s journey to Christ in an academic setting.
I enjoyed reading this book. I had the pleasure of reading it on my Kindle Touch
and found myself unable to put it down. I’d end up having to step out for an appointment and would let the kindle read to me while I drove.
Mrs. Webber writes with a witty and engaging style. She pulls the reader in with her vivid description of senses and feelings that one would expect of a master in story telling. She recalls events in detail and brings the reader along on her personal journey to faith in Christ.
I was greatly encouraged by this book and I highly recommend it to anyone interested in reading a personal account of spiritual transformation.
