In "The Unexpected Journey", Rainer took a year out of his life to engage with people who had come to Christ from a variety of religious and non-religious backgrounds. The Rainers recorded the interviews, which often took place in the person's home or in a restaurant, and later distilled the products of those interviews into a remarkably insightful work. In this paper, the writer focuses on the consistent themes that connect the various peoples' testimonials throughout the book.

From the Paper:

"At first blush, The Unexpected Journey may seem like any other testimony book. In some respects, of course, it is, for it tells the testimonies of a number of people who have placed saving faith in Christ. Also, like many testimony books, it tells the story of the people's lives before their conversions. Where The Unexpected Journey is different, however, is that there are consistent themes that connect the varied stories."
