    Ms Winner has a unique and intimate voice, and I enjoyed listening to her tell her story Still, I agree with the other reviewers that she fails to offer any signs of awareness of her journey in a larger context I have a ton of questions that this book brought up and it disappointed that she didn t seem able to offer any perspective making this less of a memoir andof a journal.My questions that I was left with What does it mean to leave Judaim Not just in a personal sense, but in th Ms Winner has a unique and intimate voice, and I enjoyed listening to her tell her story Still, I agree with the other reviewers that she fails to offer any signs of awareness of her journey in a larger context I have a ton of questions that this book brought up and it disappointed that she didn t seem able to offer any perspective making this less...

    I admire the courage it may have taken to write this book, I couldn t write so briefly about my own spiritual journeys, certainly, but I found this book to be mainly trite, self serving, and underwhelming Ms Winner claims at every turn to be over analytical, and yet she barely scratches the surface of the meaning of her religious promiscuity She writes at length about the appeal of becoming a real orthodox Jew, and it sounds like she just really wants to be part of the club her absentee fa I admire the courage it may have taken to write this book, I couldn t write so briefly about my own spiritual journeys, certainly, but I found this book to be mainly trite, self serving, and underwhelming Ms Winner claims at every turn to be over analytical, and yet she barely scratches the surface of the meaning of her religious promiscuity She writes at length about the appeal ...

    Some people just seem to have the religion gene That s definitely true of Winner, who was as enthusiastic an Orthodox Jew as she later was a Christian after the conversion that began in her college years But rather than discussing her life in terms of a strict before and after, she drifts back and forth through the years, loosely linking her experiences under thematic headings and an overall chronological setup based on the liturgical year from one Advent season to the next I suspect the st Some people just seem to have the religion gene That s definitely true of Winner, who was as enthusiastic an Orthodox Jew as she later was a Christian after the conversion that began in her college years But rather than discussing her life in terms of a strict before and after, she drifts back and forth through the years, loosely linking her experiences under thematic headings and an overall chronological setup based on the liturgical year from one Advent season to the next I suspect the structure has made this ...
