Not God's Type
Categories | Belief

Holly Ordway should never have become a Christian. A young, white, highly educated atheist and professor of English, she represents the kind of person that many observers of religion say cannot be converted anymore—a demographic supposedly beyond the reach of the church in postmodern America. Yet through a series of conversations with a wise and patient mentor, Ordway not only became convinced of God's existence, but also embraced Jesus as her Savior and Lord.

In this memoir of her conversion, Ordway turns her analytical mind toward the path that leads from darkness to light—from death to life. Simultaneously encouraging and bracing, she offers a bold testimony to the ongoing power of the Gospel—a Gospel that can humble and transform even self-assured, accomplished, and secular-minded young professionals like herself.

Dr. Ordway (University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, University of Massachusetts Amherst) is currently a professor at a community college, a lay reader and the parish librarian at her church, and a competitive sabre fencer.

I cannot conceive of a person being an atheist. How can this be? Look at the stars - God made them. I remember at the age of 8, telling my best friend's mother excitedly about Jesus. When I had the opportunity to read Ordway's book, thanks to the publisher, I grabbed the chance to see her path to conversion.
