'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 His children freedom, lets them fail, and yet never fails to raise them up.
