Sit back, relax, and enjoy a fascinating exploration of the power, meaning, and importance that food holds in the Scriptures. As author Gary Graf notes, "with references to everything from coriander and cinnamon to pomegranates and lamb, the Good Book could very easily be called the Food Book."
In previous books in the And God Said series, Graf has illuminated the connections between sports and the Bible, but in And God Said, "Let's Eat!" he delves into a topic much closer to our hearts...and our stomachs. After all, not only were food and wine a large part of the social and religious customs of biblical times, but Jesus and the prophets often used them to explain spiritual concepts. Many of Christ's teachings and miracles involved meals, and even Christ's own mysterious gifts to humanity, his Body and Blood, are expressed in bread and wine.
Armed with a curiosity about Scripture, and more than a little bit of talent in the kitchen, Graf provides all the ingredients to discuss chapters like:
- Appetizers and Biblical Morsels
- Beef: It's What's in the Bible
- Lamb and the Lamb of God
- Fruit of the Vine
- Curds and the Way
- The Land of Milk and Honey
A selection of recipes also offers readers wonderful opportunities to enjoy their own spiritual feasts.
