shea Jen Fulwiler is one smart cookie. Open to the movement of grace in her life, she submitted that extremely bright mind of hers to the God who made it and chose to use, rather than worship, her intellect in the search for truth. We are all the richer for it."

– Mark Shea,

madrid "Countless men and women find themselves astonished, overwhelmed, and swept off their feet by God's ravishing grace, but rarely has anyone described the experience as honestly and compellingly as Jennifer Fulwiler has. This powerful conversion story deserves to be ranked alongside classics such as Augustine's Confessions and Newman's Apologia."

– Patrick Madrid,
Host, "Right Here, Right Now" radio show
martinsj "Touching, inspiring, provocative and, above all, real. Fulwiler's memoir shows us that while we're seeking God, He is seeking us even more."

– James Martin, SJ,
author, The Jesuit Guide to (Almost) Everything
scalia "Something Other Than God could have been called Indiana Fulwiler and the Quest for Truth. This is a personal conversion story that reads like an adventure novel one cannot put down. Trained by her scientist father to identify and uncover ancient treasures, our driven protagonist spends a lifetime on the hunt, engaging both heart and head as she tracks down first what is desirable, then what is meaningful, until, finally -- working her way through the clinging vines of conventions, the rolling hazards of memory and the brutal realities of suffering -- she locates a priceless and eternal prize that had always awaited her.

Intellectually satisfying, spiritually affirming and populated with peripheral characters that make you wish you knew them, too, Something Other Than God is an authentic and authentically entertaining must-read!"
