Surprised by Oxford
By Carolyn Weber
Published by Thomas Nelson
This book is pretty lengthy, yet very interesting. It was not my kind of book that I normally would pick, but after reading some really good reviews (and nothing else was up for review that I wanted) I decided to go for it.
I am glad I did. It is a page turner. Once I started reading I couldn’t put it down. As usual for me, I found some info that I wanted to skip over from boredom (I am easily bored, must be the ADD). But more times than not, I was glued to the pages and was upset if I had to stop reading to cook for my family.
The author does a great job of describing what was going on. She provoked deep thought.
Her writing style is colorful and fun, not weighted down with too much seriousness, which I don’t like because I would rather be laughing and smiling when I am reading a book, and this book provides that. God really worked in her life and used a liberal system to find Him.
Over all, the book is a great intellectual read and I do recommend it. It is an amazing read.
