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.

Listener Opinions

    " Very helpful and interesting information about Jewish rituals. I wish the applications had been more creative, but I still learned a lot. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 brooke jared | 2/9/2014

    " the reason i still long to be in a liturgical church again. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erin | 2/8/2014

    " I really liked it, especially her chapters on the Sabbath, mourning, the body, candle-lighting and door posts (mezuzot). It is worth reading again soon, note to self. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Krysta | 2/3/2014

    " I read this book during our trip to Israel. It gave me a great understanding and respect for Jewish customs. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Racie | 1/9/2014

    " I'm a fan of Lauren Winner so I came to this book with a bias in place but this quickly became my favorite of her works. Her reflections on how traditions and daily practice can enhance and define spiritual life really speak to an empty place in American protestantism. It's interesting to me that when she left Orthodox Judaism she was so quick to leave behind those daily practices but in the end I am glad to benefit from her wisdom. I especially appreciate her thoughts on mourning. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pat | 1/8/2014

    " This was an important book to me in my former life as a young female Jewish convert to Christianity. No really, this a great source for a sympathetic understanding of how Judaism can inform Christian faith, worship, and life. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tanya Marie | 1/5/2014

    " Forgot to write a review - very very good book and I really like how each chapter spoke and explained a subject like hospitality, mourning, weddings, etc - and how each is celebrated in the Jewish and Christian faiths. This book is our church wide study later this month. The author will come to our church in June. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lora King | 12/31/2013

    " Lovely little book written by a Jewish girl who converted to Christianity. She does a very nice job of explaining many different Jewish traditions, such as keeping Kosher, weddings, doorposts and more. I kept comparing this in my mind the Herman Wouk's "This Is My God" which I read many years ago when I thought about converting to Judiasm (for a boy, natch). I think together, they really give Gentiles an understanding of rituals that are similar in some ways, but also different from our spititual practices. At 142 pages, it took a day to read, but it was so worth as it reminded me of a time many years ago when I thought this was the path I would take. God had other plans. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 brooke sellers | 12/26/2013

    " Lauren Winner goes through the foundational traditions of Judaism and explores what these traditions may have to offer to modern Christianity "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carol | 12/21/2013

    " It's a short little book, interesting in its way. I didn't find it overly inspiring or full of great practical tools to bring to my spiritual journey. But good and thoughtful. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christine | 12/7/2013

    " I particularly loved her perspective on "death" and "hospitality". "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stevie | 11/29/2013

    " Lauren Petrick's Favorite "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Judith | 10/2/2013

    " in a follow-up to Girl Meets God, Lauren Winner embraces elements of Judaism along with Christianity, enriching personal religion through culture and history "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Leigh Kramer | 10/1/2013

    " Short but rich. Beautiful examination of how Jewish traditions can inform Christian spiritual disciplines. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dana | 1/16/2013

    " A great book that contrasts many of the Jewish traditions with how Christians celebrate differently...and how to blend both into something worth living. I just wish this book was longer. I love this author. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jacqueline | 5/5/2012

    " What can I say? Winner is a great writer but I'm still not convinced. I'll admit I'm reading her stuff just to prove I'm right. That's like my least favorite reason for reading anything, but her writing is too compelling to ignore. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura Anne | 3/11/2012

    " This book talks about specific practices/disciplines of the Jewish community that would well-serve Christians in their own walk with God... interesting and thought-provoking. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Trice | 10/26/2011

    " This one was more like 2.5 stars - compared to girl meets God this one was pretty brief and lacking serious depth. Some good ideas and interesting information about Jewish practices and their ties to Christianity, but I wish she had developed them a lot more than she did. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amy | 10/16/2011

    " Excellent discourse on spiritual disciplines! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nellie | 9/12/2011

    " I loved the way Winner found a way to blend Jewish tradition and Christianity. She realized that many practices within Judaism are so valuable that they should be incorporated into the fabric of the Christian lifestyle. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Israel | 4/19/2011

    " mudhouse sabbath brings joy and freedom to those disciplines that are too often shrouded in apathy, empty tradition, and spiritual bondage. Also, I emailed my appreciation to Lauren (now a professor at Duke) and she personally responded. So, you can't beat that... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jordan | 2/5/2011

    " A good little read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kammy | 2/1/2011

    " Excellent, thought-provoking spiritual read. I recommend it to everyone who is religious. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rachel | 1/26/2011

    " It was interesting, but it won't ever be a book I'd likely pick up for wiling away a rainy day. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Yamit | 12/28/2010

    " A concise, beautifully written explanation of the relevance of Jewish traditions both to Jews, and to Christians who are aware of and respect these origins "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Be | 11/8/2010

    " I really enjoyed read this. It is a brief introduction to some Jewish practices. Why they do some of the things they do and where it is found in scripture. I learned some new things. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Maggie | 7/26/2010

    " EXCELLENT book. I l.o.v.e. Lauren Winner's writing style. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Aaron | 7/7/2010

    " A little slow, interesting in few places, ehhh. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Muriel | 6/27/2010

    " Very insightful book. I enjoyed it very much "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jan | 2/11/2010

    " The chapter on grief was recommended to me, and I found that especially helpful. Winner is a converted Christian/former practicing Jew. This book reflects what she misses about Jewish rituals, which give a framework and depth to many life events. A quick read. "
