Product Description

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, The Theology of Food: Eating and the Eucharist unlocks the role food has played within religious tradition.

  • Traces the centuries-old links between theology and food
  • Draws on examples from multiple religions
  • 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

Editorial Reviews

“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)
