Most widely held works by Lauren F Winner
Protestantism in America by Randall Herbert Balmer( Book )
14 editions published between 2002 and 2005 in English and held by 1,124 libraries worldwide
"As America has become more pluralistic, Protestantism, with its long roots in American history and culture, has hardly remained static. This portrait of a complex group of Christian denominations describes Protestantism's history, constituent subgroups and their activities, and the way in which its dialectic with American culture has shaped such facets of the wider society as healthcare, welfare, labor relations, gender roles, and political discourse."--Jacket
Real sex : the naked truth about chastity by Lauren F Winner( Book )
11 editions published between 2005 and 2011 in English and Korean and held by 726 libraries worldwide
In Real Sex: The Naked Truth about Chastity, Lauren Winner speaks candidly to single Christians about the difficulty--and the importance--of sexual chastity. With nuance and wit, she talks about her own sexual journey. Never dodging tough terms like "confession" and "sin," she grounds her discussion of chastity first and foremost in scripture. She confronts cultural lies about sex and challenges how we talk about sex in church. Building on the thought of Wendell Berry, she argues that sex is communal rather than private, personal rather than public. Refusing to slink away from thorny topics, Winner deftly addresses pornography, masturbation, and the perennial question of "how far is too far?" Winner also digs deeper: What does chastity have to do with loving my neighbor? How does my sexual behavior form habits and expectations? With compassion and grit, she calls Christians, both married and single, to pursue chastity as conversion and amendment of life. -- Publisher's description

Though this book has only one chapter on Sabbath, Winner, who converted from Judaism to Christianity, helpfully connects the dots between the two faiths with absolutely beautiful prose. After her conversion from Orthodox Judaism to Christianity, Lauren Winner found that her life was indelibly marked by the rich traditions and spiritual practices of Judaism. She set out to discover how she could incorporate some of these practices into her new faith. Winner presents eleven Jewish spiritual practices that can transform the way Christians view the world, and God. Whether discussing attentive eating, marking the days while grieving, the community that supports a marriage, candle-lighting, or the differences between the Jewish Sabbath and a Sunday spent at the Mudhouse, her favorite coffee shop, Winner writes with appealing honesty and rare insight

Girl meets God : on the path to a spiritual life by Lauren F Winner( Book )
3 editions published between 2002 and 2004 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
Like most of us, Lauren Winner wants something to believe in. The child of a reform Jewish father and a lapsed Southern Baptist mother, she chose to become an Orthodox Jew. But as she faithfully observes the Sabbath rituals and studies Jewish laws, she finds herself increasingly drawn to Christianity. Taking a courageous step, she leaves behind what she loves and converts. Now the even harder part: how does one reinvent a religious self? How does one embrace the new without abandoning the old? How does a convert become spiritually whole. In Girl Meets God, this appealingly honest young woman takes us through a year in her search for a religious identity. Despite her conversion, she finds that her world is still shaped by her Jewish experiences. Even as she rejoices in the holy days of the Christian calendar, she mourns the Jewish rituals she still holds dear. Attempting to reconcile the two sides of her religious self, Winner applies the lessons of Judaism to the teachings of the New Testament, hosts a Christian seder and struggles to fit her Orthodox friends into her new religious life. Ultimately, she learns that faith takes practice and belief is an ongoing challenge. Like Anne Lamott's, Winner's journey to Christendom is bumpy, but it is the rocky path itself that makes her a perfect guide to exploring spirituality in today's complicated world. Her engaging approach to religion in the 21st century is illuminating, thought-provoking and most certainly controversial

Still : notes on a mid-faith crisis by Lauren F Winner( file )
1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
In the critically acclaimed memoir Girl Meets God, Lauren F. Winner chronicled her sojourn from Judaism to Christianity. Now, in Still: Notes on a Mid-Faith Crisis, Winner describes how experiences of loss and failure unexpectedly slam her into a wall of doubt and spiritual despair: "My belief has faltered, my sense of God's closeness has grown strained, my efforts at living in accord with what I take to be the call of the gospel have come undone." Witty, relatable, and fiercely honest, Winner lays bare her experience of what she calls the "middle" of the spiritual life. In elegant and spare prose, she explores why'in the midst of the overwhelming anxiety, loneliness, and boredom of her deepest questioning about where (or if) God is'the Christian story still explains who she is better than any other story she's ever known. Still is an absorbing meditation combining literary grace with spiritual wisdom. It is sure to resonate with anyone looking to sustain a spiritual life in the midst of real life
