In "Girl Meets God, " an appealingly honest young woman takes readers through a year in her search for a religious identity. Despite her conversion to Christianity, she finds that her world is still shaped by her Jewish experiences. Attempting to reconcile the two sides of her religious self, Lauren 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.
