The Washington Post - Duke Divinity Prof. Lauren Winner

"Lauren Winner is a jumble of contradictions: A Jew who found Christianity in a dream starring Daniel Day Lewis as Jesus, an accomplished historian who rides an oversized tricycle to work, and a memoir writer who wants to keep details of her private life private...writing popular books is where her calling lies. “What I do best is this act of translation,” she said, taking religion scholarship and making it accessible to a wider audience. On a recent Sunday, she turned that act of translation on the congregation at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in Durham, where she preaches about six times a year."
