       The quality of American food dominated the headlines in 2010, and the ongoing conversation about what is healthy and wise will continue into the near future. But what of our theological understanding? The Spirit of Food invites you to a feast celebrating the life of the senses and the spirit with 34 adventurous writers, their kitchens, their recipe files, their hearts, and their minds to illustrate the many unexpected ways that food draws us closer to God, to community, and to creation.

All bring a keen eye and palette to the larger questions of the role of food-both its presence and its absence-in the life of our bodies and spirits. Their essays take us to a Canadian wheat farm, a backyard tomato garden in Cincinnati, an organic farm in Maine; into a kosher kitchen, a line of Hurricane Katrina survivors as they wait to be fed, a church basement for a thirty-hour fast; inside the translucent layers of an onion that transport us to a meditation on heaven, to a church potluck, and to many other places and ways we can experience sacramental eating.

In a time of great interest and equal confusion over the place of food in our lives, this rich collection, which includes personal recipes, will delight the senses, feed the spirit, enlarge our understanding, and deepen our ability to 'eat and drink to the glory of God.'
