I picked up this book because the cover was interesting. The author was raised a secular Jew, converted to Orthodox Judaism and eventually converted to Christianity. In the book she describes her walk with God and how she is continuing to learn. She describes in detail how Christians could benefit from knowing more about Judaism and even adopting some Jewish practices. I liked it because I do not think she has an agenda, rather she is on a spiritual journey and invites the reader to come along.

Lauren Winner writes a beautiful spiritual autobiography in "Girl Meets God". I found it to be a fast moving book, one difficult to put down. I wanted to find out how she went from Orthodox Jew to Episcopalian, if she confessed her sexual sins to the priest, and how she celebrated holidays. Winner has an extensive knowledge of both Judaism and Christianity, and the different beliefs therein. Not only does this book give you a slice of Winner's life, but it helps to explain some of the differences between different types of Christians. Wonderfully written, as well. A friend recommended this book to me, and I was not disappointed!
