Interview, Excerpt


Lauren Winner's Real Sex is being hailed by the mainstream and Christian media as one of the most important contemporary Christian considerations of sex. With exegetical acumen, historical awareness, pastoral sensibility and surprising wit Winner exposes the half-truths the church and the world have told about sex. Proceeding to help us develop a Christian understanding of sex that is biblical, communal and God-honoring, Real Sex is an invaluable resource for those longing for a holistic understanding of sexual fidelity.

In Girl Meets God, this appealingly honest young woman takes us through a year in her search for a religious identity. Despite her conversion to the Christian faith, she finds that her world is still shaped by her Jewish upbringing. Even as she rejoices in the holy days of the Christian calendar, she mourns the Jewish rituals she still holds dear. Attempting to reconcile the two sides of her religious self, Winner applies the lessons of Judaism to the teachings of the New Testament, hosts a Christian seder, and struggles to fit her Orthodox friends into her new religious life. Ultimately she learns that faith takes practice and belief is an ongoing challenge. Like Anne Lamott, Lauren Winner's journey to Christendom is bumpy, but it is the rocky path itself that makes her the perfect guide to exploring Christian spirituality in today's complicated world.

Excerpt


The Voice of Matthew is a unique retelling of the life of Jesus from the perspective of a Jewish follower of Christ, seeking to connect the past with the future. Lauren Winner, a young Jewish woman now a Christian and current lecturer at Duke Divinity School, brings an intellectual edge to the biblical story. Her retelling is an accurate rendering of the Scriptural text, with the addition of historical and cultural expansions on the story placed into italic type to help the reader differentiate the two. Lauren's writing style is very conversational, her scholarship is of the highest quality and an extremely accurate rendering of the Biblical text is the foundation for this provocative and enlightening retelling of Matthew's Gospel.
