Jennifer Fulwiler told herself she was happy. Why wouldn’t she be? Raised in a happy atheist home, Jennifer had the freedom to think for herself and to play by her own rules. Yet a creeping darkness followed her all of her life. Finally, one winter night, it drove her to ask once and for all why anything mattered. At that moment everything she knew and believed was shattered.
Asking unflinching questions about life and death and good and evil led Jennifer to Christianity, the religion she had reviled since she was an awkward, skeptical child growing up in the Bible Belt. Mortified by this turn of events, she hid her quest from everyone except her husband.
Something Other Than God is a poignant, profound, and often funny tale of a woman who had a profound epiphany that gave her the courage to convert—a woman who set out to find the meaning of life and discovered that true happiness sometimes requires losing it all.
