Girl Meets God, by Lauren Winner. This amazing little story is the spiritual memoir of a young woman raised in a mixed family (lapsed Baptist and modern Jewish) who converts to Orthodox Judaism as a teen, then becomes a Christian in her twenties. Winner is a bright woman who writes clearly about the struggle to find her place in God, and then in the Body of Christ . Her struggles with the Christian body and sub-culture struck me a must-reading for young Chrstians (both meanings of that phrase apply.) According to an interview in Mars Hill Review, Winner is currently writing a book on chastity, a subject that she touches on a bit in this work. I am looking forward to it.
