Book Recommendation: Take This Bread

One of the books that got me thinking about the theology of food this year is Take This Bread by Sara Miles.

Miles has a background as a journalist and a restaurant cook.  She wandered into church one Sunday, participated in communion, tasted Jesus in her mouth and wanted more.  She went on to start a food pantry right in the sanctuary of that very church.  This memoir is a fabulous story of what happens when we get a chance to taste and see just how good Jesus is.  This is not the story that I expected it to be, but is wild, free, engaging and true.

The book is available at Amazon.  Purchase it through these links and I’ll get affiliate credit.  Otherwise Richard and I have two copies and you can certainly borrow from us.  Let me know what you think once you’ve read it.
