The Secret Thoughts of an Unlikely Convert: An English Professor’s Journey into Christian Faith is an amazing and rare story of redemption and transformation that we recommend for your non-believing friends and those who are caught in homosexual lifestyles.
Rosaria Champagne Butterfield’s story is a wonderful journey on how genuine relationship made way for her to receive Jesus Christ as her personal Savior. In this book, Rosaria shares to the readers the story how she is an unlikely convert from being a radical lesbian to a redeemed Christian. In her mid-30’s, Rosaria was a tenured English professor at Syracuse University. She is a skeptic of all things Christianity and in a committed lesbian relationship. She was also a well-known gay-activist, a radical postmodern leftist and a Queer Theory scholar, a postmodern form of gay and lesbian studies. The turning of Rosaria’s world began when she was befriended by a local Reformed pastor and his wife. She started reading the Bible trying to refute the religious right from a lesbian feminist perspective. As the Bible started to overflow into her world she slowly realized the emptiness of her worldview. Her conversion landed her into a complicated and comprehensive chaos but in return she found life in Jesus Christ. Rosaria shares that it was by love, gentleness, patience and the genuine relationship and hospitality she had with Christian believers who lived their faith that allowed the Gospel to take seed and eventually germinate into a life radically changed by Jesus Christ.
