This book looks through a series of episodes in Luke's gospel involving meals that Jesus ate, aiming to show through them how meals eaten in Christian community today are both a picture of Jesus' meals with his friends on earth and a foretaste of the heavenly banquet to come.
There is lots of food for thought in this book, and much that would bear repeated readings. I found the chapter on the Lord's supper particularly thought-provoking.
It's quite a slim volume, but it can't be read at speed as there's so much meat in it. My biggest issue with it was that although the author is British, the book is very American, and most of the language and cultural context is Americanised. I've nothing against American books (I read dozens of them), but I find it annoying when a British author starts advocating Fourth of July parties. However, that's a fairly minor niggle in the scheme of things. by JoShields on 16th July 2011
