While passion commonly refers to a strong, seemingly active, emotion, Spinoza's definition of passion emphasizes passivity--the lack of reason as a governing agent in behavior and decision-making. My book examines this duality within a narrative based on an acquaintance of mine who became a born-again Christian in response to his troubled personal life.
