God in Disguise
Losing and Finding Jesus at the Ends of the Earth and the Limits to My SoulBook - 2017
While growing up in small-town Texas, Trudy spends her suburban childhood dreaming about a missionary life in a distant country. At the age of twenty-three, Trudy moves to India and sets out to find God in the slum. There, she forms unlikely bonds with her impoverished Muslim neighbors, who become her spiritual guides and surrogate family. But as the chaos and tragedy of her neighbors' lives spills into her own, Trudy is unprepared for the unraveling of her faith and her sense of self. Yet her overwhelming sense of failure to live up to her ideals of compassion and justice leads her deeper-rather than further-into relationship with the God she thought she already knew. This captivating memoir charts Trudy's journey from certainty into mystery and from a guilt- and fear-based faith into the freedom of God's unconditional love.
