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 readers consider 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 also includes an eight-week study guide for groups or individuals, which leads to action: setting a table that is healthy, joyful and just.
