The Convert captures a crazy spiritual journey with insight for anyone questioning or sure of their convictions. While Oliver and I will, for now, see the events of Nov. 17, 2010 very differently. He captures the journey colorfully and with exceptional questioning insight. That he was able to stomach this story of revelation with barely furrowing a brow on the surface was amazing. Myself, two years ago, I would have had to walk away from a ridiculous story like this with disbelief and incredulity. Yet, Broudy stayed in the game and thoughtfully captured a human experience that had an outcome he just could not bring himself to believe in. This is partly why I hope I will always find him a friend.
He communicates the essence of so much of the atheist resistance to God and the failings of Christians to convey His Love for all, without so much hypocrisy. Frankly, I think we might be better to tell people about Satan first, then they could better understand the Christian fail. With personal insight he interprets my own experiences with such accuracy and understanding. There are a couple miscues, but generally Broudy is the faithful interpreter.
No matter your perspective there is an unbelievable journey ahead for you as you examine a life poorly chosen and inspiringly lived.
It only took a moment to find God. It took a lifetime to find that moment.
Love & Light,
