blest atheist

ISBN: 9781933455112

As a young child, outraged by the hypocrisy she finds in a church that does nothing to alleviate the physical and sexual abuse she experiences on a regular basis, Beth delivers an accusatory youth sermon and gets her family expelled from the church. Having locked the door on God, Beth goes on to raise a family of seven children, learn 17 languages, and enjoy a career that takes her to NASA, Washington, and 24 countries. All the time, however, God keeps knocking at the door, protecting and blessing her, which she realizes only decades later. Ultimately, Beth finds God in a very simple yet most unusual way.


From Amazon Customer Review:


“Mahlou’s chief reason for writing this very personal tale is not to offer succor, but to tell the story of how an atheist came to believe in God. As a very intelligent, very compassionate nonbeliever-turned-Christian, Mahlou is a captivating example of religion’s pull even for those who aren’t writhing in self-pity, aren’t blind to all but childish reasons for religious belief, and aren’t obediently following their parents’ and parents’ parents belief systems.This is a tale of belief hard-fought-against, wisely considered, and spiritually experienced.”
