Do you love food? Who doesn't really? Eating is a necessary activity, but in His overwhelming abundance, God has blessedus with thousands of ways to satisfy our hunger--ripe mangoes, chicken cacciatore, crusty bread and pungent cheese, a warm and smoky pinot noir--the world is filled with creative and delicious opportunities to enjoy. And one of the best ways to enjoy this abundance is with the people we love and cherish, gathered around the table, receiving nourishment from the food and from each other.
Author and speaker Shauna Niequist believes in the power of food and community as well, and in her latest collection of stories, Bread & Wine: A Love Letter to Life Around the Table, she shares from her heart and her kitchen. With Shauna, you'll uncover why food is so important for our bodies and our souls, and how unbalance in one area of life can lead to unbalance in others. You'll explore the themes of feasting and fasting, celebration and mourning, brokenness and healing through stories and hand-picked recipes. Bread & Wine also includes a discussion guide for a four week book/cooking club, and tips from Shauna on entertaining with sample menus. As you read, you'll discover more of the sacred in your everyday, as youslow down and enjoy what happens around the table. Paperback .
