Product Description

After her conversion from Orthodox Judaism to Christianity, Lauren Winner found that her life was indelibly marked by the rich traditions and spiritual practices of Judaism. She set out to discover how she could incorporate some of these practices into her new faith.

Winner presents eleven Jewish spiritual practices that can transform the way Christians view the world, and God. Whether discussing attentive eating, marking the days while grieving, the community that supports a marriage, candle-lighting, or the differences between the Jewish Sabbath and a Sunday spent at the Mudhouse, her favorite coffee shop, Winner writes with appealing honesty and rare insight.

'Lauren Winner speaks the language of this generation. It is authentic, free and bold.'---Ben Young, author of The Ten Commandments of Dating' At a time when we are so aware of the differences between Judaism and Christianity, Lauren Winner's book on what we can learn from each other is so refreshingly welcome.'---Rabbi Harold Kushner, author of When Bad Things Happen to Good People 'For all of us who can't get our spiritual lives in shape by shipping out to a monastery, Lauren Winner explores simple, do-able ways of keeping company with God in the ordinary, day-to-day world of eating, working, resting, romancing, aging, earning, grieving, and celebrating. Her rich identity as a Jewish/Christian/scholar/writer informs every sentence.'---Brian McLaren, pastor and author of A New Kind of Christian '[Winner is] a gifted writer who has much to teach us about the deep and indestructible bonds between Judaism and Christianity.'---Richard Mouw, President, Fuller Seminary

Editorial Reviews

A writer of spiritual substance and grace-filled style.
Publishers Weekly


"The strongest reason to read this book... is that it makes one think. I have been considering some of her statements and discussing them with friends ever since I read the book, and I've ordered copies for close friends and recommended it to just about anyone who would listen to me. Book clubs would have much to talk about after reading this, and it should have a beneficial impact on our Christian community, if we will listen."
 
The Living Church

"A compelling engaging (and at times appropriately humorous) tour of rarely exposed yet Biblically rooted spiritual disciplines."

    Lauren Winner has had quite an interesting life, in which she has written quite openly about her adult conversion from Judaism to Christianity in "Girl Meets God". She also covers this at length in "Mudhouse Sabbath", which is a look at various Jewish religious/spiritual practices from her new Christian perspective. Some of these, like prayer and fasting, are things that Christians are known to do. Others, like using candles or keeping kosher, don't necessarily have a counter-part in her new faith.

    Winner, like many who go through a radical conversion, have a sense of mourning about their old ways and this book sorts through her thoughts on these various Jewish and Christian disciplines. She writes with warmth and clarity and is obviously well-read, quoting both ancient and modern scholars. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone interested in Jewish-Christian dialogue/practices, as well as those who are exploring different spiritual disciplines to undertake. It's a short book and could easily be read in an afternoon or slowly digested as a daily devotional.

    Being raised Jewish like the author I searched out the meaning of my Jewish roots as a Christian. As a convert to the Catholic Church I have found many of the answers to the questions and practice of my Jewish faith, which lives in the Christian Church. For anyone who wants to learn a little about the roots of our faith I recommend this book.

    This is a wonderful book. It demonstrates the blessing that one gains by paying attention to the details of tradition. I have been blessed by examples of doing worship, rather than reading or listening worship.
