Description


"As twenty-first-century Christians search for practices that can sustain our faith from day to day, and from generation to generation, Lauren Winner reminds us of how much we have to learn from our spiritual cousins. From the Jewish tradition she offers models for a more hospitable life of faith, but she also invites us into her own home, incompletely furnished and still under renovation, like a true and truthful friend."
- Andy Crouch, columnist, Christianity Today



"Lauren Winner is an exciting new voice in discussions of American religious life. She is a gifted writer who has much to teach all of us about the deep and indestructible bonds between Judaism and Christianity."
- Richard J. Mouw, President, and Professor of Christian Philosophy, Fuller Seminary



Lauren Winner shares the spiritual practices she has adopted
in her quest to reconcile Judaism and Christianity.



Despite her conversion from Orthodox Judaism to Christianity, Lauren Winner finds that her life is still shaped by the spiritual essences of Judaism– rich traditions and religious practices that she can't leave behind. In Mudhouse Sabbath, Winner illuminates eleven spiritual practices that can transform the way we view the world, and God. Whether discussing her own prayer life, the spirituality of 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.

An emergent writer and speaker, Winner...
An emergent writer and speaker, Winner brings many elements from her Jewish upbringing into the light of Christianity, examining each and suggesting ways to integrate elements of both faiths. The theology is light, as Winner is not nearly as scandalous as mavericks such as Brian McLaren and Rob Bell, with the result being more anecdotal than an imperative to put into practice. Kate Reading gives an expert and inviting performance, tackling Hebrew words and effortlessly presenting them to the listener. When an English-speaking narrator makes you feel the foreign words she is reading, the performance bears the imprimatur of someone dedicated to her craft. S.M.M. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine
