At least since St. Augustine, converts to Christianity have taken St. Peter’s admonition to “always be prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you” to include, among other things, the stories of their conversion. Autobiography and memoir as genres essentially begin with Augustine’s own conversion story in the Confessions, and spiritual autobiography remains a remarkably popular genre even when the specifics of the narratives don’t look that much like Augustine’s.

Our guest today on Christian Humanist Profiles is Abigail Rine Favale, the director of the William Penn Honors Program at George Fox University. She’s recently published her own memoir of conversion, Into the Deep: An Unlikely Catholic Conversion.
