My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Butterfield has accomplished something great by writing with a simple goal. She simply wants to glorify Christ (who chose her, not the other way around) by presenting her own “conversion” story one of “comprehensive chaos” that resulted in nothing less than total death (for death is required to move from being a former radical feminist-lesbian to the wife of a pastor of a conservative Reformed Presbyterian denomination). Her transparency and honesty allows us to reflect honestly about our sins, though she consciously does not glory in the past sin and shock factor so as to be sensationalist. Her strong convictions and opinions also provide great fuel for deep reflection. She boldly speaks on everything from sexual sin, gender roles, and adoption to homeschooling and hospitality. Here is a page-turning story penned by an honest and open English professor who writes well and thinks critically.
Another excellent book on the similar topic of Christianity and Homosexuality is Sam Allberry’s Is God Anti-Gay?. My review can be found here.
