Reviews - What do customers think about Becoming Bread: Embracing the Spiritual in the Everyday?
A book for Communion Feb 12, 2004
This little gem of a book keeps inviting me back to its lovely layers of meaning. It would be wonderful to read aloud for small church or retreat groups having a Communion service, what with its imagery of baking, breaking, and "being" bread together. It talks about transformation (in baking) and the pain of waiting and becoming, with allusions to Christ in us. What a clever metaphor and comforting, accessible book for all faiths.
Becoming Bread: Embracing the Spiritual in the Everyday Feb 2, 2003
I have read all of Gunilla Norris' books, and found them deeply contemplative. I highly recommend all of them, to be read with a morning cup of tea and muffin.
My main reason for writing this review is that I eagerly ordered this title and discovered it is a REPRINT of an old book. I was disappointed that the this site blurb didn't include it's older date of publication, 1993. So, if you have not read this book, you are in for a treat. If you have, this is not a new work. Just a re-issue.
