Surprised by Oxford by Carolyn Weber

***Please note that there is some colorful language in one paragraph on page 17. If this content would be offensive to you, you may not want to read the preface.

A girl-meets-God style memoir of an agnostic who, through her surprising opportunity to study at Oxford, comes to a dynamic personal faith in God.
Carolyn Weber arrives for graduate study at Oxford University 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 love and a life that matters.
This savvy, beautifully written, credible account of Christian conversion follows the calendar and events of the school year as it entertains, informs, and promises to engage even the most skeptical and unlikely reader.
I loved this book. Carolyn Weber has a way with words in that she will pull you into her world in the first two paragraphs. She divides this memoir into parts of her life at school and then dipping into parts of her past.

The way she offers the information will keep you turning the pages even if this book is quite thick.

I can't wait to read more from this author.
