- Publisher Gathering to eat has been an important activity in both family and community life since the beginning of existence. It is a ritual that includes sharing, celebration, learning, providing for the helpless, comfort, satisfaction, pleasure, creativity, sustenance, and nurture. Sara Covin Juengst views feasting as central in the Bible and to the unfolding of the biblical narrative. She presents six theological themes related to food and feasting: Biblical Foods and Customs; Stewardship: Food as God's Good Gift; Hospitality: Expression of Grace; Bonding: Strangers No Longer; Compassion: The Great Inasmuch; Celebration: The Joyful Feast; and Hope and Restoration: No More Tears. The author examines the biblical customs connected with food and discovers new meaning in familiar passages.

- Publisher By examining the Biblical customs connected with food, Juengst discovers new meaning in familiar passages and presents six theological themes related to food and feasting. Palmer says that Juengst shows "how food is woven as intricately as faith into the entire fabric of our lives".
