Item description for Food & Faith: Justice, Joy and Daily Bread by Michael Schut, Wendell Berry & Dan Barker...
Overview From the creator of the bestseller Simpler Living, Compassionate Life: A Christian Perspective comes Food and Faith. Food is itself a joyful gift - recall how the gift of food so often mediates the sanctity and preciousness of life. This new collection of reflections by Wendell Berry, Bill McKibben, Elizabeth Johnson, Alan Durning and others helps you start thinking about the moral, spiritual and economic implications of eating. Readings focus on the enjoyment and spirituality of good food, ways in which eating connects us to the land and to each other, and on the economic, environmental and cultural impacts of daily food choices. Food and Faith includes an eight-week study guide for groups or individuals, which leads to action: setting a table that is healthy, joyful and just.

Reviews - What do customers think about Food & Faith: Justice, Joy and Daily Bread?
excellent introduction to the sacrementality of food Nov 20, 2003
This is an excellent overview to the many aspects of food as a spiritual connection with God, who created food in the first place. Touching family stories, riviting descriptions of some bad aspects of modern food production, and a faith angle that pulls it all together. This collection of articles and essays really makes you reflect upon our connection to God thru what we eat,how we eat, and where our food comes from. A great book!
