So when her interest in religion was awakened in college, the key issue wasn't what she thought of God, but what she feared God thought of her. "I've screwed up majorly in my life," Knapp, 26, said, "so the ultimate questions became, 'Can God forgive how contrary I am to his holiness?' . . . And, 'Am I a person of value who can be loved by God despite my flaws?'
