Michele Guinness was brought up to observe all the traditions and ritual of her Jewish culture. Yet gradually these became more and more empty of real meaning: was there nothing more to expect from life? An encounter with a Christian made Michele question more deeply and delve into the Bible for answers. In this lively, humorous account, she tells how she came face to face with the Messiah and had to make sense of being both Jewish and Christian.’Child of the Convant’ opens the door into the colourful world of Jewish life and challenges the Christian Church to display an equivalent commitment to the family and community, joyfully upholding the new covenant of Christ.
Michele Guinness, now married to an Anglican clergyman, lives in W.Yorkshire.
