"Filled with humor, insight, and faith, this true story tells how one young woman overcame challenges, stereotypes, and personal struggles at Harvard Divinity School and emerged an ordained minister. As a bright, young girl from Ohio, Andrea Raynor was fascinated by religion. Then she landed--almost by accident--at Harvard Divinity School, which, she quickly discovered, was no typical seminary. When she attended in the 1980s, HDS was a place overflowing with creative expression and freedom of thought. Her classmates included two men who were undergoing sex changes and another who fancied herself a geisha. There was a lively gay and lesbian caucus, marches on Washington, civil disobedience, and more sexual intrigue than a stereotypical college fraternity house. Providing a birds-eye view of life within the hallowed halls (and beneath the crimson robes), Incognito is a humorous and poignant glimpse inside one of the nation's most revered institutions. It begins with the long drive from Ohio to Cambridge, and ends at the bedside of a young, dying woman, but the real story is about the challenges, surprises, and ultimately life-changing experiences Andrea faced on the road to becoming a minister. From whether a pretty girl can truly wear a collar to how so many people can believe so many different things, Incognito tackles our assumptions about spirituality, the church, morality, and identity, and ultimately affirms that God often works in ways--and in people--we least expect"-- Provided by publisher.
