An endorsement of Food, Feast & Fast
Many of us would not label our daily meal a feast. In fact, we probably take eating for granted unless we are food insecure or live in poverty or are being treated to a fine dining experience. We fast out of necessity for health reasons, not religiously. Moreover, for many eating is something that is just done, with little thought and no fanfare. Fintan Lyons, OSB challenges these attitudes towards food, feasting and fasting in this wide-ranging yet accessible introduction that is, in the end, a theology of eating. In these pages we are reminded that food is at the core of human culture, both secular and religious. This book will benefit anyone who is concerned with the place of food in human life but it will certainly instruct Christian believers who strive to live as those who feast and those who fast.
