Item description for I'm Not Being Fed: Discovering the Food That Satisfies the Soul by Jeff Cavins...

Noted Catholic media host, author, and Bible tacher Jeff Cavins explores the reasons why many Catholics do not understand and appreciate the holy Eucharist--and why some have even left the Church, saying tht they weren't "being fed." By focusing on the biblical evidence for the Real Presence of Jesus in the Eucharist, Cavins shows how this sacrament is the very heart of Christianity, the only food that truly satisfies our souls.

Publishers Description
In I'm Not Being Fed: Discovering the Food that Satisfies the Soul, Jeff Cavins explores the reasons why many Catholics don't seem to fully appreciate the great gift they have in the Holy Eucharist, and why some have even left the church for evagelical Christianity. He responds to the common complaint that they simply were not being "fed" and longed for a more personal, "spiritually nourishing" relationship.

Very Good. I hope more lapsed Catholics and non Catholics realize what is missing in their lives  Jul 26, 2008
Jeff does a wonderful job explaining the eucharist from the teaching of the church fathers. A book highly reccomended is The Early Church Fathers by Mike Aquilina. I believe if more people knew the early church father teachings more people would return back to the one true church.
Excellent Book  Oct 31, 2007
This excellent book is both a very personable read and intellectually satisfying in its appreciation of the Catholic biblical and theological tradition. I heartily recommend it to anyone who wants to deepen their own appreciation of the Catholic faith. Other Chrisitans would also find it helpful in genuinely understanding the Catholic understanding of the eucharist as the true Body and Blood of Christ. Jeff Cavins exegesis on Johh's Gospel, Chp 6, is especially relevant in that regard.
A must read!  Feb 12, 2007
I recently finished this book and found it to be extremely insightful! I don't want to give away to much, but he talks about his faith journey and the scripture that led him to where he is today. Easy to read and very educational! You will not be sorry you purchased this book.
Soul Food  Jan 2, 2006
Jeff Cavins offers a serious and sincere study of the Eucharist, suggesting that, as a young Catholic, he was truly "being fed" by the Blessed Sacrament (the Eucharist), but his failure to understand the reality of that sacrament led him to look elsewhere. In fact, he spent twelve years as a Protestant minister until study and self-examination brought him home, once again, to the Catholic faith--and to "the source and summit of the Christian life" (see CATECHISM, #1324). Although there is little new in Mr. Cavins's analyses and arguments, his reasoning here is clear, concise, and cogent. There are, he says, five types of Catholic "drop-outs" (see pp. 22-23), but all departing Catholics (and many who attack the Church) seem to share in either blasphemy or ignorance (pp. 27-31). Particularly compelling--and tragic (because it's true)--is his suggestion that far too many Catholics are guilty, in a word, of sloth: they know very little about the Church, and their intellectual apathy often leads to spiritual atrophy and to moral indifference or to religious relativism. "God's grace is free," says Mr. Cavins, "but it isn't cheap" (p. 140). Sloth, he might have added, is a deadly or capital sin. He is particularly effective in showing how some of the ancient heresies (such as docetism) find new life in contemporary attacks on Catholicism (pp. 48-50, 113); how language studies fortify the Catholic position about the Real Presence (e.g., p. 116); about the "Great Exchange" and the idea of covenant (p. 105); about the Four Amens (a particularly well-done section of the book), based upon John 6 (see pp. 95-99); and a mini-Bible study of the idea of the Lamb (pp. 93-95). This slim volume will be particularly useful to those Catholics who have left the Church in a forlorn attempt to find Truth (Who is someOne, not just something) in one of about 35,000 self-styled Christian denominations, all claiming to be based only upon scripture (see pp. 57-64). The multiplication of such denominations is chaos (p. 20), and many of the pastors of these ecclesial bodies--good and decent men and women--find themselves struggling to be, ironically, their own popes as they discover that they are interpreting scripture and wondering if they are doing so well and rightly for their people. As a man of deep conviction--one who left the Church and then humbly returned--Mr. Cavins establishes strong positions, but what is at stake is nothing less than Truth. This is not a deeply theological book; it offers little in the way of new philosophical exploration. It is, rather, a short work of apologetic synthesis: Mr. Cavins believes with all his mind, heart, strength, and soul that Christ Himself awaits us in the tabernacles of the Catholic Church, which leads Mr. Cavins to suggest that we have the moral duty to pray, to study, and to think about that. Suppose he is right. Suppose Christ does await us. What then? (He answers that question on pp. 134-135.) He is at his best when he says that, after his return to the faith, he broke down and wept at a public lecture (p. 141) as he recounted the joy of his return to the Eucharist. This is a readable, thoughtful, and passionate book--one I recommend particularly for Catholics who want to come home. As one business used to put it: "We'll leave the light on for you!" Come home and help us build a fire to be seen around the world--a truly catholic (and Catholic) fire!
Having recommended the book, I am compelled by honesty to upbraid the publisher for a sloppy printing and editing job: Along the way, we find such errors as misspellings of such words as "prophesies" (93), misuse of the semicolon (p. 132), misuse of the hyphen throughout (as in "recently-discovered item" [which should not be hyphenated]), poor proofreading (p. 85), misuse of ellipses (e.g., pp. 93, 95), misuse of a verb ("quotes") for a noun ("quotations"--p. 133), misuse of the phrase "can't help but" (p. 79), misuse of a colon after a
linking verb (pp. 49, 123), failure to use the word "else" after "anybody" (p. 38), and an incorrect title (p. 53). Minor quibbles? Certainly. But the publisher is charging for the book (which is all right, of course), and therefore the reader deserves a professionally produced and well-edited product. The book also lacks an index, which would prove helpful to its readers. Ascension Press must revise its editorial process. All in all, I repeat, this is, despite the regrettable editorial lapses, a book I recommend--especially for Catholics whose catechesis (religious education) has been inadequate (and that is far too many people in far too many places). Mr. Cavins can be of help, if you will give him two or three hours of your time.
