RT Book, Whole DB /z-wcorg/ DS http://worldcat.org ID 51297143 LA English T1 A Baptist among the Jews A1 Howe, Mary Blye., PB Jossey-Bass PP San Francisco YR 2003 SN 0787965588 9780787965587 AB Many Christians struggle to understand the Jewish roots of their faith. This book tells the highly personal story of one woman's journey to reclaim those roots. To satisfy her curiosity, Mary Blye Howe joined a welcoming Jewish study group held in the home of a Hasidic rabbi, which led her to a deeper, richer relationship with her God. While learning about the traditions of Judaism and studying the Torah, Howe discovered a new world of worship and ritual that expanded her experience to include several different Jewish groups. She reveled in the joys of arguing with God (even though God always wins), synagogue-hopping on the Jewish holiday of Shavuot, and dancing with a sefer Torah through the streets of Dallas. Page after page, we discover how Howe's once-narrow concept of God has expanded with her ability to read the scriptures and understand this "new" faith.--From publisher description.
