   An inspiration for Protestants!
I will buy this book for gifts again and again. It was an eye- opening experience. I now understand Judaism better. The personal experience of growing up Jewish, living as a Jew, worshiping as a Jew, and celebrating being Jewish is not the textbook Judaism we learn at church. I decided to cut out activities and carve out time to establish a true Sabbath. It is about anticipating the Sabbath and saying goodbye until the next Sabbath and living in God's grace and mercy. Traditions and rituals draw us into his care and comfort because they focus on God. I thought it was pretty and honest. I am grateful to Rev. Lauren Winner is sharing her life.
   I really liked this little/big book
I liked this book very much. It's the kind of book that I put in my purse when I'm waiting in line. I want to say that this woman's writing is genuine. The book is funny and warm. She incorporates Jewish tradition into her daily worship as a believer in Jesus Christ. She allows us to walk with her through her growth in the Lord and her applications in light of her new faith. She is quick to address her challenges and we should listen in on her thoughts about them! The book was a delight.
   A Great Little Book
This book was very enjoyable for me. Lauren Winner was raised a kosher Jew and then converted to Christianity. Winner realized that she misses some of the spiritual disciplines that came from her Jewish upbringing so the book is about how to adapt some Jewish spiritual disciplines to Christian beliefs. She talks about eating, the image of the body, mourning, keeping the Sabbath, and many other things that could inform Christian practice. Her observations and suggestions were very insightful. Winner's writing style made me feel like I was sitting next to her at the Mudhouse Cafe, her favorite coffee shop, which is the title of the book. I would make a new version of this book for anyone who wants to deepen their connection to the spirit in their everyday lives. It's a good book.
   Amazing book that can change your life in so many ...
There is a book that can change your life in many ways. An Episcopal priest with a Jewish heritage tells Christians and other faith groups about Jewish rituals that can make a difference in how we live. Grieving after the death of a loved one can promote healing.
I loved this book. I agree with you that there are not many rituals and traditions in modern- day Christianity. The Christian faith becomes real and not just theory with the help of fasting, liturgy, and hospitality. As long as we don't become pharisees about it, these are disciplines that we could all do with more. The writing style is applicable and funny. I highly recommend it.
   Great book!
I enjoyed it so much that I slowed down and just finished it today. I will re- read it in the future.
   Insight into Jewish foundational faith practices
They fill gaps in Christianity. An interesting and lovingly written set of practical ways that Jewish people have declared and reminded themselves of their faith. To remedy some blind spots and flesh out Christianity as the fulfillment of Jewish CovenantProphecy, set out. I liked it.
   Not what I was expecting
The book was disappointing. She highlighted the Jewish traditions and oral law and minimized the beauty of keeping the Torah. We try to keep Torah to the best of our ability, not for salvation, but because of a love for the Father. Keeping Shabbat, honoring the feast days, not eating certain foods, these are all instructions for all believers, not just Jews, and they are there for our good! If we choose to do these actionsdisciplines, they aren't there for a fluffyfeel good addition to our lives. We are supposed to obey the Father, but no one wants to hear that.
Some of the Jewish symbols I have heard of and seen were beautiful. I will add some of the meanings of these traditions to my life now that I have heard of them. I think that every non Jewish person should read this book because it is beautiful.
