How to Stop Using Food and Fear to Fill Spiritual Hunger
Why God Cares More About How You Eat Than What You Eat
Ever notice how much time Jesus spent around a table? If he wasn’t sharing a meal with others, he was handing out free dinner.
If Jesus called himself the “bread of life,” why is it that our relationship with food is so complicated? We love it. We hate it. We hate that we love it. Whether we’re obsessing over what not to consume—carbs, sugar, alcohol—or what we will devour—fat free, dairy free, gluten free—food has become burdensome.
Christian Book Award® winner Tilly Dillehay tackles the way we approach food. In Broken Bread, Dillehay identifies the four major food sins and the fears that drive them, and she offers a new way of thinking about food less in order to focus on more important matters.
When we take the business of breaking bread together seriously, as the early church did, we not only use the table to build community, faith, and love, but the act of preparing and eating food becomes sweeter, more savory, and much more enjoyable.
