I hadn't heard about Joe Eszterhas’s faith

Joe Eszterhas’s awakening from the WaPo:

Or was it God's divinely impish sense of humor? "Who, you? You're praying? After everything you've done to break my commandments and after every nasty, unfunny thing you've written about Me and those who follow Me - now you're sobbing? Praying? Asking Me to help you? Hah! Okay, fine, I'll help you. But if I do, know this: My help will obliterate the old, infamous you. You'll wind up turning your life inside-out. You'll wind up stopping all of your excesses. You know what will happen to you? You'll wind up telling the world what I did for you. You'll wind up carrying my cross in church. Yes, I make all things new - and you will be new, too."

I will thank Him forever because He gave me new life and a heart which is truly able to love for the first time in my life. His love is mine.

Like Novak, he doesn't explain how his belief in a god translated into a belief in Jesus.

I don't think that you'll get much of that in secular publications but the carrying the cross stuff gets at least closer than Novak to actually saying it. The Novak stuff I've seen has been much more generic.
