Overview
Robert Karris spreads before us a unique and delightful framing of the food theme in the Gospel of Luke. Karris describes the food and drink popular in Jesus' day. He also documents the social, political, and general contexts in which the food was prepared and eaten. He outlines the social roles Jesus assumes in Luke's Gospel in relation to food and meals, as well as the relationship between women and food. Karris also examines the eucharistic implications of the way food and drink are portrayed. This volume invites readers to get actively involved in the process of discovery by checking Scripture references alongside the author. Food themes in the other three Gospels are also briefly compared with Luke's Gospel. Questions to stimulate an appetite for discussion or reflection and suggestions for further reading are provided at the end of each chapter.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Fresh Approach Plus a Special Bonus  Feb 21, 2006
Robert Karris has written this book not for scholars, though he is one himself, but for continuing education students, and it is marked by what he calls "serious levity." Eating Your Way through Luke "first emerged from the oven of lively classroom discussion" at Catholic Theological Union in Chicago, Karris explains. After a brief overview of eating rituals and food and drink available to Jesus and his disciples, the author turns to Luke's gospel with its theme of food. Here, before listing more than 75 citations of his own, he urges us to read through the gospel in one sitting, making notes of food references. This activity is designed to overcome misunderstandings stemming from lectionary-only acquaintance with scripture.

As a good teacher, Karris provides historical insights and spiritual reflections on Luke's food theme. He continues the "motif" of serious levity with such chapter titles as "Jesus, glutton and drunkard, friend of toll collectors and sinners." The style and scope of these chapters is what one would expect, enlightening and interesting

But the final part of the book contains a surprising bonus. Now that we have gone through Luke's gospel finding, examining, and interpreting themes, Karris point out, we have the ability to do the same with other scriptures. He helps us get started by supplying his own results from "trawling for the theme of food" in the gospels of John, Mark, and Matthew. Thus, we find ourselves in possession of a totally fresh and imminently accessible resource for individual and group study of the New Testament.
