However, the real story I felt that was untold is the meat of his own household with a Jewish dad, Methodist mom, and Jewish kids. He touches on it briefly throughout the book, and its clear that there are some pretty big issues with melding these two together when it comes to religion. I could get a real sense of the sacrifice his wife made when they made the choice, together, to raise their children jewish. I also don't think he fully understood that sacrifice. He writes that he does, but his writing also gives him away, and that he truly doesn't. I'd love to have seen a couple of chapters included in this story from her perspective.
I've recommended it to some friends, which I don't do with a lot of books, so I'll recommend it to you as well. It's not earth shattering, it's not going to answer all your questions, but ultimately we learn and grow from hearing other people's stories - taking what we like and applying it and walking away from what we don't like. There were some stories worth reading in this one.
This book was a little too detailed when it came to his mother's alcoholic past. On the other hand
If you have made a faith journey or are considering one you could find David's story valuable. It is a book that is not for everyone as I cannot say it is intriguing or fascinating. It is well written and informative for those interested in the subject or the author and his rise and fall and how he came back to center.
His is a complicated story. His father is Jewish, his mother is Roman Catholic and his wife is Methodist. But Gregory identified as Jewish and set out to figure out what that meant to him and the children he and his wife agreed to raise as Jewish. Ever the reporter (and thanks to his extraordinary access), Gregory talked to a host of religious figures—from Cardinal Timothy Dolan, Archbishop of New York to Rabbi Danny Zemel of Temple Micah in Washington, D.C. to televangelist Joel Osteen to Imam Mohamed Magic, executive director of the All Dulles Area Muslim Society.
No matter your faith (or lack thereof) or where you are on your spiritual journey (or lack thereof), I highly recommend this book. I was mesmerized!
What impressed me the most was how lovingly the author and his wife, who is of a different religious background, worked together to make faith central in the life of their family, how they worked together talking each problem through as it came along and the support they gave each other.
Well-written, the book flows smoothly through each time period being discussed. A wonderful read.
