The links between religion and food have been known for centuries, and yet we rarely examine or understand the nature of the relationship between food and spirituality, or food and sin. Drawing on literature, politics, and philosophy as well as theology, this book unlocks the role food has played within religious tradition.
Angel F. Méndez-Montoya, OP is a member of the Southern Dominican Province in the USA. He currently teaches theology and philosophy at Universidad Iberoamericana, Mexico, where he is also the coordinator of the Faith and Culture Program. He is a Ph.D. in philosophical theology from the University of Virginia and was scholar in residence at University of Cambridge.
"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)
