“This is a book about what nourishes us: food, faith, family, and friends, and how all of those elements are essential ingredients of Communion—in fact how every meal of our lives holds an invitation to the Sacred Meal.
“As I say in the opening chapter, ‘What the Gospel writers don’t seem to scrimp on are stories of Jesus eating, or at least stories about Jesus and food. He eats, feeds, talks about food, and even calls himself the Bread of Life, right down to that last night in the Upper Room…where they sat around the table and he wrapped it all up
with a meal—The Meal—as his ultimate metaphor.’” —from the IntroductionMilton Brasher-Cunningham
