This book will excite you and keep you cooking, enough said.
Really interesting book about food and how it relates to the Bible. I could definitely see the relevance and many of the connections that he made with the importance of feasting. Includes lots of recipes for food that would have been accessible in biblical times. I'm interested in trying a couple of them - Yogurt & Cucumber Salad, Leek Fritters with Garlic, and Fried Cucumbers with Leeks. Hopefully they will taste as good as they sound.
I was glad to read it. The author makes the case for a theology of food - feasting - that makes a lot of sense. In fact there is a lot of good common sense and good theology in the narrative he unfolds. There are also very good recipes - mostly in the last half of the book, to feed the body and soul. This was a delightful and good read.
Found it very interesting and going out to find a copy(on ebay) because I want to keep this book-along with the recipes therein-on my bookshelf for years to come. I loved to watch him at work in the kitchen years back! May pick up a few more of his books!
This, the last of his cookbooks, contains in black and white the late Rev. Smith's dangerous theology for which he was ruthlessly attacked. An excellent treatise by an honorable and good man.
