- A fascinating book tracing the centuries-old links between theology and food, showing religion in a new and intriguing light
- Draws on examples from different religions: the significance of the apple in the Christian Bible and the eating of bread as the body of Christ; the eating and fasting around Ramadan for Muslims; and how the dietary laws of Judaism are designed to create an awareness of living in the time and space of the Torah
- Explores ideas from the fields of literature, politics, and philosophy, as well as theology
- Takes seriously the idea that food matters, and that the many aspects of eating – table fellowship, culinary traditions, the aesthetic, ethical and political dimensions of food – are important and complex, and throw light on both religion and our relationship to food
“Nevertheless, this is an inspiring interpretation of the possibility of reclaiming and reconnecting theology, food, and a fuller eucharistic life.” (The Theology of Food, 1 October 2013)"This book deserves to be widely read and, if you will forgive the metaphor, digested." (Christian Century)
"Montoya's book is a delight to read, and is a significant contribution to the effort to apply theological thinking to the everyday realities of embodied life." (Modern Theology)
"For all its erudition, this book is more complex and valuable than a simple examination of Christian consumption. It offers rich reflection on the prophetic and generous ways in which Christianity might still disciple consumers who desire the superabundant grace made material in the flesh of Jesus Christ." (Theological Book Review)
"This much-needed book takes seriously the Churches' unique contribution to understanding the importance of food." (Church Times)
"A thought provoking and engaging work on the role of the Eucharist in Christian life." (CHOICE)
“[T]his is an inspiring interpretation of the possibility of reclaiming and reconnecting theology, food, and a fuller eucharistic life.” (Interpretation: A Journal of Bible and Theology)
