Cynthia Haven's account of René Girard's intellectual conversion, new from Wiseblood Books

“Some academics beguile you with a few interesting ideas while other academics shake your world. René Girard belongs in the second camp. He demonstrates the uniqueness and indispensability of Christian revelation to a culture that is skeptical of the Gospel, and does so in a way that is absolutely life-changing. Though he described himself as an ordinary Christian, this account of his conversion, as well as his academic work, supports my claim that in centuries to come René Girard may be remembered as one of the great Fathers of the Church.”
