Girl Meets God

Tuesday, April 22, 2008

I just finished this book. I truly enjoyed it and learned a lot from it. I love walking away from a book feeling like I learned something as well as had a good time. This book was educational in an academic way as well as in an introspective way. It made me take a closer look at the relationship I have with God and my religion as well as my faith.

There are so many quotes that resonated with me, that made me cry, when reading I was truly impressed. I may just go and buy the book because I loved it.

The story is autobiographical about a woman, close in age to me who is the child of a Jew (father) and a Christian (mother). Judaism being passed down the maternal line was not her 'religion' though she was raised in it. She elected to convert to Orthodox Judaism, and then to Christianity. I thought I was relatively well informed about the Christian faith but was left feeling uneducated and envious of her honest and personal relationship with God. Thus it has inspired me to read more by theologians.

I read this book a few years ago, and I own it (though think I lent it to someone). I love it too! She's written another book called Mudhouse Sabbath which goes more into her Jewish faith. Very interesting!
