Feasting as community, celebration, and thanksgiving--this is the subject of Holly Whitcomb's joyful work. In each chapter of the two sections, Feasts and Culinary Interludes, Whitcomb provides a Christian theme on which the chapter is based, topics and questions for reflection and discussion, and mouth-watering recipes. Careful attention is also paid to creating an environment conducive to camaraderie and interaction. Don't worry about whether it is too much trouble for the host, though, as each feast is a potluck. Here are instructions for having your own miniretreat without ever leaving home.
"Not only does (Whitcomb's) brilliance in this book lift up the holiness of food, and instruct us in the many ways that we come together to feast with one another and with God.... She also evokes the wide and wonderful variety of ways that all of us can engage in the kind of table spirituality that heralds the messianic banquet so familiar to readers of the Hebrew Bible and the New Testament, a spirituality that lies at the core of this book". - Maria Harris, from the Foreword
