I'm a Christian woman engaged to a Jewish man. We're both deeply involved in our religions and joyful in our respective traditions, and we both enjoy the exchange of ideas and experiences that we have gotten to share with each other as we discuss our beliefs and celebrate each other's holidays. We've spoken with many interfaith couples and both Jewish and Christian clergy as we plan our marriage. A rabbi recommended this book to us.
My fiance and I have heard and read plenty of spoken and written criticisms of interfaith families, but this book was the most blatant, the least thoughtful, and the most hurtful.
It was not supportive of interfaith families at all. I felt that the book was very disrespectful. The book stated that it should be easier for Christians to give up passing on Christianity to their children because Christianity was shallow and less meaningful than Judaism. It suggested that interfaith families that raised their children Christian only did it to "pass", so their children could be part of a "majority culture". It never acknowledged that Christians might find Christianity meaningful in its own right.
Maybe it gets better after the first chapter. I wasn't inclined to continue reading it.
