And immediately the girl got up and began to walk about . . .
At this they were overcome with amazement." (Mark 5:42)

The Girl Got Up is a spiritual memoir, or as Rachel Srubas says, "retrospection with an eye toward the eternal." Though it is, to be sure, a resurrection memoir, it is also heartbreakingly cruciform. Srubas refuses to recount her getting up before an honest account of being brought low, of the breaking of her spirit. Blending personal narrative with scriptural wisdom, she offers shining new insights into the nature of childhood, spiritual awakening, sexuality, sin, love, marriage, scapegoating, Christian compassion, the proclamation of Christ's resurrection, and more.

No pious abstractions or how-to cheeriness here. Srubas faces life with a striking blend of realism, intelligence, and steely faith. The Girl Got Up is a unique testament to the God who grants us freedom, lets us fail, and yet never fails to raise us up.

About the Author:

Rachel M. Srubas is the author of City of Prayer: Forty Days with Desert Christians (Liturgical Press, 2008) and Oblation: Meditations on St. Benedict's Rule (Paraclete Press, 2006).

Review:

Srubas tells her story and the Gospel story in a way that speaks of a lifetime of conversion, confession, and redemption with a warm, accessible, and familiar voice. The Girl Got Up is a joy and an encouragement to those seeking a deeper faith.Rev. Alex Hendrickson, Founding board member, The Young Clergy Women Project

My first impression of A Girl Got Up is my lasting impression: Rachel Srubas is someone who can be trusted—trusted to tell a compelling story; trusted to guide the reader with wisdom and subtle humor; trusted to weave together Scripture, personal narrative, and self-reflection without glossing over hard or painful truths. Few books plumb the depths of faith, skepticism, and yearning with such naked grace. It will take your breath away.MaryAnn McKibben Dana, Author of Sabbath in the Suburbs

The Girl Got Up is a powerful and honest book that weaves together spiritual journey and scriptural reflection. Rachel Srubas writes luminous and compelling prose. Once you begin reading, this book is very difficult to put down.Cynthia M. Campbell, President emerita, McCormick Theological Seminary
