Publisher's Description

The links between religion and food have been known for centuries,and yet we rarely examine or understand the nature of therelationship between food and spirituality, or food and sin.Drawing on literature, politics, and philosophy as well astheology, this book unlocks the role food has played withinreligious tradition.
  • A fascinating book tracing the centuries-old links betweentheology and food, showing religion in a new and intriguinglight
  • Draws on examples from different religions: the significance ofthe apple in the Christian Bible and the eating of bread as thebody of Christ; the eating and fasting around Ramadan for Muslims;and how the dietary laws of Judaism are designed to create anawareness of living in the time and space of the Torah
  • Explores ideas from the fields of literature, politics, andphilosophy, as well as theology
  • Takes seriously the idea that food matters, and that the manyaspects of eating – table fellowship, culinarytraditions, the aesthetic, ethical and political dimensions offood – are important and complex, and throw light onboth religion and our relationship to food

Editorial Reviews

“Nevertheless, this is an inspiring interpretation of thepossibility of reclaiming and reconnecting theology, food, and afuller eucharistic life.” (The Theology ofFood, 1 October 2013)

"This book deserves to be widely read and, if you will forgive themetaphor, digested." (Christian Century)

"Montoya's book is a delight to read, and is a significantcontribution to the effort to apply theological thinking to theeveryday realities of embodied life." (ModernTheology)

"For all its erudition, this book is more complex and valuablethan a simple examination of Christian consumption. It offers richreflection on the prophetic and generous ways in which Christianitymight still disciple consumers who desire the superabundant gracemade material in the flesh of Jesus Christ." (TheologicalBook Review)

"This much-needed book takes seriously the Churches' uniquecontribution to understanding the importance of food."(Church Times)

"A thought provoking and engaging work on the role of theEucharist in Christian life." (CHOICE)

“[T]his is an inspiring interpretation of the possibilityof reclaiming and reconnecting theology, food, and a fullereucharistic life.” (Interpretation: A Journal of Bibleand Theology)
