Publisher's Description

Like most Christians, Mary Blye Howe was uninformed about Jewishritual and tradition. To satisfy her curiosity she joined a Jewishstudy group held in the home of a Hasidic rabbi. A Baptist Amongthe Jews is Howe's first-person account of her eye-openingexperience of studying with that welcoming group and how thisexperience led her to a deeper, richer relationship with her God.While learning about the traditions of Judaism and studying theTorah, Howe discovered a new world of worship and ritual thatexpanded her experience to include several different Jewish groups,among them Reform, Conservative, and Orthodox. She reveled in thejoys of arguing with God (even though God always wins),synagogue-hopping on the Jewish holiday of Shavuot, and dancingwith a sefer torah through the streets of Dallas. Page after page,we join Howe on her religious quest and discover how heronce-narrow concept of God has expanded with her ability to readthe scriptures and understand this new faith. Howe's profound andtransforming experiences helped her develop a new sense ofworship— one that eschews spectatorship in favor ofparticipation.
