Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Lauren Winner, NPR commentator, award-winning author, and assistant professor of Christian spirituality at Duke Divinity School, converted from Judaism to Christianity, joining the Anglican Church when she was a student in England. After abandoning for a while the Jewish practices she had grown up with, she realized that these practices could help her in her Christianity, since they would have been followed by Jesus himself. In seven lessons, Winner discusses Sabbath keeping, mindful eating, hospitality, prayer, fasting, mourning, and the home as a sacred space, giving the Jewish reasons behind each practice and offering ways they can be adapted to the personal spiritual life of Christians. Meant as a companion to her book of the same title, the video would be an excellent discussion starter for groups studying Christian spirituality and a fine meditation for individuals seeking to enhance their spiritual life.—Augustine J.
