In Mudhouse Sabbath, Winner illuminates eleven spiritual practices that can transform the way we view the world, and God.

Other tables in the casino were overcrowded, but the redhead and her diminutive husband were the only two people at Veras. Still, she put on a good show for them, snapping the cards out with an easy dexterity that made the work look e ortless. Luce could see an elegant side of Vera that she hadnt noticed before. A air for the dramatic.

The Madhouse (Casa de locos) or Asylum (Manicomio) is an oil-on-panel painting by Francisco de Goya. He produced it between 1812 and 1819. It shows a mental asylum, with its inhabitants in many different poses. Marked by Piranesian and claustrophobic architecture, the painting's only light source is a barred window high up on the wall, clearly meant to repress the figures below.

Talk about Mudhouse Sabbath

I really liked this little/big book! It's the kind of book I pop in my purse for the waiting room, coffee shop or plane ride. I want to describe this woman's writing as authentic, transparent, honest, genuine. This book is funny and radiates much warmth and insight from the Messianic perspective. She incorporates Jewish tradition into her daily worship as a Believer in Jesus Christ, all of which I delight in. She lets us walk with her through the 'how' of her growth in the Lord and the applications in the light of her new faith. She is very quick to address her challenges and let's us listen in on her ruminations about them! Overall, a delightful little book!
Amazing book that can change your life in so many ways. An Episcopal priest who has a Jewish heritage tells Christians and other faith group about Jewish rituals which can make a difference in how we live. My favorite are the rituals of grieving after the death of a loved one which can promote healing.
I am A Christian and have often thought that some of the Jewish symbols I have heard of and seen were beautiful. Now that I have heard some of the meanings of these traditions I am going to add some of them to my life. This book was a Loy to read and I think every non Jewish person should read this book so they can appreciate the beauty of it.
It's so easy
This book is one I'll read again and buy for gifts. It was an eye-opener. I understand Judaism so much better now! Not the textbook Judaism or the Old Testament Judaism we learn about at church, but the personal experience of growing up Jewish, being Jewish, practicing Juduasim, living as a Jew, worshipping as a Jew, and celebrating being Jewish. It inspired me to start carving out time and cutting out activities to eventually establish a true Sabbath. It's about anticipating the Sabbath and saying goodbye until the next Sabbath and living in God's grace and mercy in between. It's about traditions and rituals that focus us on God and draw us into his care and comfort. I thought it was lovely and rich and honest. I appreciate Rev. Lauren Winner sharing her life and beautiful writing.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Lauren Winner, the author was raised a kosher Jew and then converted to Christianity as an adult in college. As a practicing Christian, Winner realizes that she misses some of the spiritual disciplines that came from her Jewish upbringing, so the book is about how to adapt some Jewish spiritual disciplines to Christian beliefs. She talks about eating, the image of the body, mourning, keeping the Sabbath and many other things that could inform Christian practice and deepen it. I felt that her observations and suggestions were greatly insightful and practicable. Winner's writing style made me feel like I was sitting next to her at the Mudhouse Cafe, her favorite coffee shop which lends it's name to the title of the book. I would recommed this book for anyone wishing to deepen their connection to the spirit in their everyday lives. It's a wonderful book.
This book is a pretty quick, easy read... but it could end up taking a big bite out of your current allotment of "free time." That is if you decide that you want to implement any of Winner's suggestions, especially in relation to Sabbath or Lord's Day observances. I admit I am intrigued by her description of Jewish Sabbath practices.

I appreciated her observation on the liturgy:

"Even my friend Meg, who left the too-liturgical Episcopal Church for a praise-song-singing, spontaneous-prayer-praying charismatic church, will, I suspect, discover that she is doing liturgy: After enough time, the rhythm of the praise songs and the (seemingly) spontaneous prayers will become familiar and even routine, a liturgy of its own."

As a Lutheran who is a former "charismatic" I am often amused and sometimes annoyed by people who look down their noses at the liturgy because everything is written down and repeats itself week after week. My own experience has taught me that the free-flowing-move-of-the-Spirit churches can be just as repetitive and more so. After singing the same twelve word praise chorus for the thirteenth consecutive time, I start pulling out my beard.

Thank God for diversity! I have shed buckets of tears in both kinds of services and God has met me and ministered to me in both places. There are positive aspects to each; and there is always danger of spiritual stagnation no matter where you choose to go to church. What you take away from worship will depend in large part by what you take with you going in.

Okay, enough from me... back to the book. I am giving this book four stars. It was enjoyable and it was interesting. It held my attention through its brief pages, but I don't think it changed my life. That is probably more of a statement about where I am spiritually than it is about the content of the book. I agreed with much of Winner's commentary on Christian life and practice and perhaps that's why I held back one star. I pretty much believe what she believes so I wasn't forced to examine my beliefs or practices. We're already on the same page. That doesn't mean that this book couldn't be life changing for someone and I would definitely recommend it.
Skillful wisdom and warm relationship with God is evident in this book. Very well written and insightful. I’m so glad I came upon this book. Robust in challenge to my discipline in seeking my heavenly father.
This book is a must-read for every Christian. It is written by a woman who was raised Jewish, but then became a Christian. The author reviews many aspects of the everyday practices of Jews, and the reason for them -- and then explains how she modified some of them to reflect the Christian faith. Very practical and thought-provoking.

I read it with a church study group, and there are questions for discussion.
