Publisher's Description

In a culture built on consumption--especially of food--it is easy to forget the poor that Jesus cared so much about. Following the pattern of his successful Advent Conspiracy, Chris Seay invites readers on a journey of self-examination, discipline, and renewed focus on Jesus that will change their lives forever.

He challenges readers to eat like the poor for forty days in solidarity with a much-neglected group of people, and to donate the money they save on groceries to a charity or project that serves the poor in concrete ways. But he doesn't expect them to go it alone. A Place at the Table includes a short chapter for each of those forty days with Scripture, reflections, prayers, encouragement, and tips for engaging the whole family in the process. The six-session DVD, shot in such locations as the Holy Land, Haiti, and Ecuador, will help small groups and entire churches go on a passionate journey of radical faith, personal action, solidarity with the poor, and extravagant grace.

    Fasting - A Lost Practice for Many of Us

    Chris Seay is becoming more of a well-known American pastor and is definitely wanting to challenge many of our perceptions about what it means to live out our faith day-to-day. I've read many blog posts by him, as well as the Advent Conspiracy (I know he has several "the Gospel According to_" books out but I have not read them yet).

    A Place at the Table is a guide for those wishing to do a 40 day fast. The goal is to better empathize with the poor, by eating like how many would across the world and then donating the money saved towards helping them. Fasting obviously works very well during Lent, but he points out that really any time during the year would be fine. The first 50 pages are thoughts about what it means to fast, theological considerations and pragmatically how that might play itself out. The remainder of the pages in the book are his journal entries from when he did a 40 day fast earlier in his life. They contain Scripture passages, some reflections, a prayer and a short profile on someone living in a developing nation. These seem to be the elements one would expect from such a work.

    I think Seay has a great heart and brain and I enjoyed this and look forward to other endeavors from him in the future. This book works solely from "The Voice" Bible translation (which he took part in) and so it was interesting to have that incorporated instead of a more traditional version. If you are looking for a resource that would assist you and others in a church/small group in fasting, I think this would be a very helpful resource for you. Fasting (among other spiritual disciples) is sadly a lost art among many Evangelical Christians today.
