In today's episode, we hear the story of an unlikely convert—Rosaria Butterfield. Rosaria was a tenured women’s studies Professor at Syracuse University who adopted a lesbian identity. In 1997, she began reading the Bible as research for a book she planned to write. After reading large portions of Scripture and being invited into the home of a pastor where her questions were welcomed and answered, Rosaria converted to Christianity in 1999. In this episode, she shares her story of coming to Christ and how that resulted in her losing almost everything—but gaining eternal life in Christ.
