Overview
Food plays a remarkable role in the daily routine of our lives. Whether we make time to eat with our families, or hit the drive-through on the way to doing something else, food and how we approach it has the extraordinary power to unite us with others and nurture our connection to the Divine. Provocative and insightful, the eclectic and beautiful pieces in this book will open your eyes to the awe-inspiring link between nourishment and nirvana. Drawing from many faith traditions and backgrounds-including Christian, Jewish, Buddhist, Muslim, Hindu, Native American, and Sikh-the words in this volume paint a glorious picture of the sanctity waiting to be discovered in a thing so simple-and yet so divine-as food.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A look at how food affects one's psyche and spirit  Aug 17, 2008
You are what you eat, as the old proverb goes. "Bread, Body, Spirit: Finding the Sacred in Food" is a look at how food affects one's psyche and spirit. Drawing upon research of both eastern and western religions, "Bread, Body, Spirit" is an intellectual and thought provoking look at how the human spirit is fueled. A poignant and thoughtful title, highly recommended.
 
Comfort Reading  Jul 12, 2008
I found this wonderful book quite by accident when doing a search for "bread" (I bake almost daily and am always looking for new recipes!). BREAD, BODY, SPIRIT is the kitchen equivalent of nighttable reading (perhaps butcher block reading might be an appropriate term). I've found myself picking it up to read variuos passages while stirring a custard for a batch of ice cream or waiting for a sauce to simmer. Many of the entries have struck a chord. "Deer Season" reminded me of my childhood growing up in a family of hunters and as I'm a fan of the writing of Barbara Kingsolver I was happy to read her essay "Free Breakfast." Always enjoyable, I find this book to be more than just entertainment as it consistently reminds me of why I love to cook and love to give away most of my creations to be shared by others.
