Not God’s Type (book review)

A book review from The Movie Snob.

Not God’s Type: An Atheist Academic Lays Down Her Arms, by Holly Ordway (Ignatius 2010).  Ignatius is a leading publisher of dependably orthodox Catholic books.  That, together with the title of this book, tells you most of what you need to know about it.  Ordway, an English professor, was a reflexive atheist for many years.  But her curiosity and desire to know the truth of things led her into a series of conversations with her Christian fencing coach (of all people).  Those conversations led to her conversion to Christianity and, ultimately, Catholicism.  I thought it was an interesting and well-written story.
