Surprised By Oxford

Full Product Description

'A hugely readable journey of cultural and spiritual discovery, sparkling with wit and wisdom.' - Alister McGrath

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 lecturers 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 calendar year and events of the school year as it entertains, informs and promises to engage even the most sceptical and unlikely reader.

Surprised By Oxford by Carolyn Weber was published by Thomas Nelson in January 2013 and is our 27856th best seller. The ISBN for Surprised By Oxford is 9780849921834.
