Each recipe is accompanied by a festive photo on the opposite page and a picture of the dish in an inset on the same page as the recipe. Sprinkled throughout are quotes and Scriptures.

Whether you're celebrating a joyous occasion with your dearest friends and family, welcoming overnight guests, or comforting someone in need, your home can be a sanctuary of Christian fellowship. Discover the scriptural basis for hospitality through this compilation of menus, each designed to complement life's most important occasions with the people you cherish.

Usher the new neighbors into your dining room for an elegant dinner of Sunday Rib Roast, or greet your out-of-town guests with Blueberry Peach Coffee Cake on their first morning in your home. Broaden your family's understanding of other cultures with Pollo San Miguel, a meal that reflects the flavors of another country. Scattered among the recipes is a selection of Scriptures, prayers, and poetry that will focus your heart on praise and thanksgiving as you prepare to share with others his provision in your home.

    Share the Bounty by Benita Long

    Published by Thomas Nelson

    Home entertaining with a higher purpose, Share the Bounty is a book focusing on hospitality for the sake of blessing those around us, and ultimately for the glory of God!

    I found the cover and large size of this hardback cookbook appealing.You will be delighted with the numerous full-page photographs filling the book, as well as be inspired by the tasty recipes.

    Since culinary arts are very important to me, with photography also being a favorite of mine, I am always excited to find a cookbook which combines the two arts to create a beautiful and satisfactory book.

    I enjoyed the variety of photographs (by Sammy Anderson), which range from flowers and landscapes to table settings, exquisite buildings.....and of course, food!

    As a cook, I assure you that the recipes in Share the Bounty are balanced in the sense that they are not overly time-consuming to prepare, yet unique enough to ensure the pleasure of the loved ones you are serving.

    Such exciting recipes as ''Spicy Sausage and Chicken Lasagna'', ''Fig Turnovers'', ''Fireside Soup'', ''Walnut Cheese Wafers'', ''Asparagus Leek Quiche'', and ''Grilled Chicken and Wild Rice Salad''.

    The book has many more simple recipes such as ''Strawberry Rhubarb Bread'', ''Spicy Herbed Hummus'', ''Praline Bars'', and ''Chocolate Coffee Pie''.

    Besides the two arts of creating meals and photographing the world around me, I also love interior decorating and preparing table settings, therefore I was glad to notice several photographs of various richly-decorated rooms and sweet table settings in Share the Bounty.

    Just looking at the variety of opportunities for hosting gatherings suggested in this book and seeing the photographs of several different tables, as well as all the recipes is enough to cause great excitement within one as to future hospitality endeavors. However, the author of the book doesn't stop there. Included with each chapter is an introduction with a Biblical perspective and Scriptures enforcing the real reasons behind hospitality, friendship and community.

    I personally favored, recipe-wise, the chapters concerning ''Festive Appetizers'', ''International Cuisine'', and also the chapter about welcoming overnight guests. I know it sounds humorous, but I can't wait until someday I can make little treats to place on the bedside table of a guest for their pleasure!

    To be balanced, I must add my negative views...

    First, I was disappointed that the book is printed in China. It seems double-minded to bless people in America by our hospitality and food while simultaneously supporting a government which cruelly persecutes Christians.

    Also, the book includes quotes not only from godly people but also from such questionable characters as Aristotle, Emerson, Marcus Aurelius, a Dalai Lamaa, Plato, and shockingly, a quote or two from Rousseau!

    Although the rooms in the photographs has some beautiful styles and colour tones, some of them had rather modern artwork or pieces which took away from the beauty.

    Those are my only complaints.

    I was pleased to receive this book free through the BookSneeze.com blogging program! I was encouraged to state my entire opinion, positive or negative.

    Thanks!

    I am so excited about this book. It is a big ~ hard cover ~book. It is really a cookbook but it looks much like a coffee table book as well. It's big beautiful glossy pages just beckon you to sit down and go through it page by page. Which is exactly what I did when the postman delivered it to my door. I just couldn't help myself. I was not expecting it to be such a large book~ and it is beautiful.

    The recipes are familiar but have unusual twist. I am so excited to try each one. Can you tell I am so in love with this book?

    On each page not only are the most amazing recipes but each page is filled with scripture verses, quotes, and hospitality ideas. The photography automatically draws you in~ very well done.

    The book begins with The Call and Prepare to Share~ we are so very blessed in this country and this book inspires you to take what you have and share it with others through the spirit of hospitality. It would make a wonderful gift for the cook in your life.

    This is a very large size book (12″x 9″). It includes menus and recipes, full page photographs, quotes, and bible verses. It could be a coffee table book in addition to a cookbook. And if I liked it, it could be a kind gift for a generous host/hostess. However I didn't like this book and here are my reasons.

    First, the photographs mostly depict scenes and table settings that are upscale and not what the average hostess would offer. This comes across cold and stuffy. Next, the writing style I find to be awkward. In an attempt to be eloquent perhaps, the vocabulary choices make the reading difficult when it could have been more relaxed and down to earth. And the biggest reason I don't recommend this book is because of many of the quotes. Shockingly many are from secular people (Yoko Ono, Lionel Richie, Led Zeppelin, and others). There is a sprinkling of bible verses but this book is not completely scriptural or Christian guided.

    (Additionally, I noticed what I believe is an error omission in the Potatoes Annette recipe. The directions say to peel and cook the potatoes but it never says to slice them before combining them with the other ingredients. I don't think I'd mix 3 lbs. of whole potatoes into a casserole.)
