Overview This fascinating personal account chronicles a libertarian, feminist, agnostic's discovery of a dynamic faith where all the evidence points to Christianity.
A fascinating personal account of a libertarian feminist agnostic who discovered a dynamic faith.
Kitty Foth-Regner was a secular feminist who had bought hook, line, and sinker the ideals and objectives of Betty Friedan's N.O.W. Kitty's mother-a woman of faith-became sick and clearly was destined to die rather quickly. And the author began to wonder about whether she would be in heaven with her mother someday. This led her on a personal journey of faith. Heaven Without Her is Foth-Regner's personal memoir of how she found, to her amazement, that all the evidence points to Christianity.
From Publishers Weekly As a feminist and a successful freelance copywriter, Foth-Regner had a full and enviable life. Until, that is, her mother's fatal illness stormed into her otherwise manageable existence, leaving Foth-Regner shaken and distracted. In this engaging spiritual memoir, she tells her story of coming to faith in Christ by first examining all the plausible reasons for not doing so. Each chapter of Foth-Regner's spiritual journey is filled with examinations of the Christian faith from a variety of vantage points as she dissects historical facts, other religions' claims, scientific discoveries, the assertion that the Bible is inerrant , and much more. Readers will appreciate Foth-Regner's razor-sharp wit and the clever mind that she displays throughout her narrative. Most importantly, she offers readers her brutally open heart, full of wrenching pain, as she prepares to watch her beloved mother exit Earth to heaven. Many will resonate with Foth-Regner's doubts and unanswered questions and similarly find themselves rejoicing on multiple levels as she discovers inner peace with God's promise of the eternal. Foth-Regner includes an extensive section for further reading at the close of her memoir, which in itself is an invaluable resource for new seekers and veterans of the Christian faith. (Apr.)

A cure for the skeptics, and more than I needed Jul 18, 2008
If I were a non-believer in Christ and Christianity, this book would probably put me over the top to becoming a Christian. Kitty has done research that goes beyond necessary, yet she keeps it interesting and light. I believe in miracles, and the only thing that makes sense at all, is Jesus and God. So, for me, I wasn't converted, but enjoyed learning some good old fashioned science that supports what I believe in. Well done, great presentation in moving back and forth in time to intertwine thoughts.
