Rosaria, by the standards of many, was living a very good life. She had a tenured position at a large university in a field for which she cared deeply. She owned two homes with her partner, in which they provided hospitality to students and activists that were looking to make a difference in the world. In the community, Rosaria was involved in volunteer work. At the university, she was a respected advisor of students and her department’s curriculum.

Then, in her late 30’s, Rosaria encountered something that turned her world upside down––the idea that Christianity, a religion she had regarded as problematic and sometimes downright damaging, might be right about who God was. That idea seemed to fly in the face of the people and causes that she most loved. What follows is a story of what she describes as a train wreck at the hand of the supernatural. These are her secret thoughts about those events, written as only a reflective English professor could.

This expanded edition includes more than 50 pages of additional content, including: two open letters from Rosaria, Pastor Ken G. Smith’s story of reaching out to Rosaria, Pastor Kent Butterfield’s testimony of Christian hospitality, FAQs, psalms to sing, and more.

The Secret Thoughts of an Unlikely Convert

If you thought that an American lesbian English professor is impossible to reach with the Gospel, think again because Jesus chose Rosaria Champagne Butterfield for herself. The story of how it happened is so inspiring, and then there is what happens next as she worked through repentance means. She came to the American evangelical scene with fresh eyes, and challenged its complacency and judgementalism. God changes lives.
