The difficulty was not a lack of opportunity to hear about God. The problem lay deeper: in my very concept of what faith was. I thought faith was by definition irrational, that it meant believing some assertion to be true for no reason. It had never occurred to me that there could be a path to faith through reason, that there were arguments for the existence of God, and evidence for the claims of Christianity. I thought you had to “just have faith”—and the very idea of faith baffled and horrified me. – Holly Ordway (from, Not God’s Type: A Rational Academic Finds a Radical Faith)
