In other words, if you tell someone how you became a Christian and in so doing you make yourself look good, you've failed miserably.
This was a nice introduction to a book that describes her journey from being "a leftist, lesbian professor" (her words) into a life of following Jesus Christ (and in so doing leaving behind her former life).
As I reflect personally, I confess that I was a sin-infested young boy when I became a follower of Jesus. Today, with eyes wide open after walking with Jesus for 20 years, I still feel the sin infestation alive and well. I still need grace, redemption, and the good news of the Gospel. My sin is more shocking than it was before...because I'm less ignorant to what I'm doing to God, others, and myself.
I need a Savior today just like I needed Him the first day I cried out to Him.
