Surprised by Oxford

Surprised by Oxford

On 10/2 Vikki Huisman wrote: I've been pretty burned out on spiritual memoirs lately. I think most of them are pretty whiny and don't have anything to say...with the rare exception. Until recently, the only spiritual memoir I enjoyed reading was Ian Cron's Jesus, My Father, The CIA and Me (which you should definitely pick up). ... Surprised by Oxford-Book Review
