Elizabeth Fox-Genovese

From "A Conversion Story", First Things, April 2000:

A decisive moment in my journey of faith came when, one day, seemingly out of nowhere, the thought pierced me that Jesus had died for my sins. And, immediately on its heels, came the devastating recognition that I am not worth his sacrifice. Only gradually I came truly to understand that the determination of worth belongs not to me but to him.
