Soul Banquets offers a compelling combination of rich biblical insight and powerful contemporary illustrations to invite us into a deeper understanding of the significance of shared meals. In his persuasive and accessible presentation, John Koenig helps us see the close and life-giving connections among common meals, eucharist, mission, justice, and worship. While recognizing the complexity of some of the issues, Koenig provides helpful suggestions for recovering a central place for shared meals in Christian practice. — Christine D. Pohl, Professor of Social Ethics, Asbury Theological Seminary, Wilmore, Kentucky, and author of Making Room: Recovering Hospitality as a Christian Tradition
As mainline denominations continue to seek a mission focus that speaks to a culturally and theologically diverse people, Koenig shows us a way forward that lies at the heart of the Christian tradition — the sharing of meals. A must read for all churches seeking to bring members, both old and new, closer to the Holy Spirit in their midst. — The Rev. Canon Elizabeth Geitz, author of Fireweed Evangelism: Christian Hospitality in a Multifaith World and Calling Clergy: A Spiritual and Practical Guide through the Search Process
