    How often do you come across a book that combines Scripture with food yet not in the context of fasting? Margaret Feinberg does just that. She takes her readers on a journey through the Bible to literally taste and see that the Lord is good. First, we head to the Promised Land to catch fish in the same sea as the disciples. We learn just the type of fish caught and just how important fishing was to that culture and what it meant when the disciples left their jobs fishing to follow Jesus but also the miracles Jesus performed in that sea.

    Next, Margaret takes the reader to California to learn about figs and fig trees. We learn about the cycles of the fig tree and how huge it was when a tree did not produce.

    Third, we learn about baking bread. The way the Israelites would have for Passover, especially if they were poor.

    The fourth place we head to is near her home in Utah, to salt mines to learn about how salt is mined and the differences in salt as well as to learn that while salt is a common commodity these days, in biblical days salt had to be mined to be of use even to season with.

    The sixth chapter takes the reader to Croatia to pick olives in an olive grove and learn rich history behind olives and how the relate to the Old Testament story of Elisha and the widow.

    The seventh chapter takes us to Dallas, Texas where Margaret gets a lesson on meat and lamb chops. We learn about how modern food regulations relate to biblical times food regulations and how they set the Israelites apart from their neighbors and kept them from food bribery. Understanding meat take up a great portion of the chapter both in biblical times and in modern times.

    The last chapter pulls it all together and sums up the experience that Margaret has taken us on.

    I give this book 2 thumbs us and greatly recommend it to anyone interested in seeing the Bible truly come alive with the food of that era.

    {FYI: I received this book from the publisher in exchange for my HONEST opinion.}

    The book opens to speak on hospitality and friendships being grown. How just a simple invitation, an open door can be an opportunity that blesses you more than you expected. Especially when you may be grumbling on the inside. You leave satiated in your belly and heart. God is intentional in each visit - each gathering. He uses these times to uncover a deep need and satiate a deep hunger. Where God could meet us and fill our hearts. God isn't waiting for one particular season in the distant future to yield fruitfulness in our lives. He's working throughout every season and every harvesting cycle.

    Stepping into the pages of a new Margaret Feinberg book for me is like opening a gift from a friend. I can't wait to discover what's inside. That was exactly what happened when I had an opportunity to read her newly published book, Taste and See: Discovering God Among Butchers, Bakers, and Fresh Food Makers.

    In Taste and See Margaret shows how prominent a role food plays throughout the Bible and points us to how it helps us grow hungry for Him and savor his goodness in our lives. Consider that the book of Genesis "unfolds like a feast with fruits and vegetables everywhere."

    Margaret zeroes in on "six foods God uses to reveal and heal our deepest hungers." But if you know anything about Margaret, you know she will not simply read up on them. She travels to spend time with the people who know these foods the best and learns about them firsthand with those intimately acquainted with every aspect of them.

    I loved this book and all I learned and how it drew me into deeper insights into hunger both for natural food created by God and spiritual food He offers me if I will but take time to "taste and see."
