A Sorrowful Joy
Albert Raboteau tells the remarkable story of his own spiritual journey--one marked by sorrow and joy, by conversion and reconciliation. He tells of the murder of his father before he was born, being raised in a devout Roman Catholic African-American family, his education, marriage and career crises, and rebuilding his life following a conversion to Orthodox Christianity, becoming a religion scholar at Princeton.
