From early childhood, Jordan Gandhi, the daughter of a philosophy professor, gained a reputation for picking apart the arguments of her religious classmates. During her freshman year at Harvard, she continued defending atheism into the early morning hours with fellow students, but thoughtful challenges soon had her doubting her skepticism. After working through philosophical problems including the Euthryphro question and the Paradox of the Stone, she became a committed theist and underwent a religious conversion. She became editor of the Ichthus, Harvard's Christian journal, and then the Northeast Regional Director and Director of Content Development at the Veritas Forum. She is now attending Fuller Theological Seminary in Menlo Park. Mrs. Gandhi presented the intellectual dimension of her conversion, with an emphasis on the philosophical challenges she had to face along the way.
