“...many report a profound shift in their spiritual lives, as they turn from the condemnation of a judging God ('You are going to hell') to the embrace of a God of paradox and extravagant love. This harrowing transition leads many to a confidence embrace, at last, of 'the person God always intended me to be.' "
