From the creator of the bestseller Simpler Living, Compassionate Life: A Christian Perspective comes Food & Faith.

Food is itself a joyful gift – recall how the gift of food so often mediates the sanctity and preciousness of life. This collection of reflections by Wendell Berry, Bill McKibben, Elizabeth Johnson, Alan Durning and others helps you start thinking about the moral, spiritual and economic implications of eating.

Readings focus on the enjoyment and spirituality of good food, ways in which eating connects us to the land and to each other, and on the economic, environmental and cultural impacts of daily food choices. Food & Faith includes an eight-week study guide for groups or individuals, which leads to action: setting a table that is healthy, joyful and just.

Michael Schut is a popular teacher, speaker, and author, focusing on the nexus between faith, sustainability, economics, and justice. He served as economic and environmental affairs officer of the Episcopal Church, following 11 years on the staff of Earth Ministry. His books include Money & Faith: The Search for Enough and Simpler Living, Compassionate Life: A Christian Perspective. He lives in Seattle.
