Digging into ‘My Jesus Year’



Benyamin Cohen, founding editor of the now-defunct American Jewish Life magazine, spent a year hanging out with Christians in the Bible Belt and has turned those experiences into a memoir. “My Jesus Year” is, in many ways, a parallel reality for me and Cohen is the bizarro me.

He was raised an Orthodox Jew, the son of a rabbi, but overtime came to find his faith dead. By spending time with evangelicals, his religious beliefs were reinvigorated. Click here and here to see how that compares to my journey from Bel Air Presbyterian to The Jewish Journal.

I’ll be spending some time writing a review of “My Jesus Year” for Christianity Today this evening and a feature for The Journal tomorrow morning. In the meantime, you can watch below Cohen’s appearance on CNN Sunday morning:
