Our spirituality needs revival, but the disciplines of the Spirit often go covered with dust, lying unused by Christians because they feel too much like rules. But what if they weren’t rules? What if they were conversation starters? Invitations to discover God right now, today?

In Out of the House of Bread author Preston Yancey leads us in a new but old direction of spi

I fell in love with Preston Yancey’s writing last year when I read his memoir Tables in the Wilderness. He is a beautiful writer, drawing his reader into a conversation full of curiosity and invitation. So when I saw he had written a book on spiritual disciplines I was intrigued. As a Spiritual Director I love introducing people to new ways that they might connect with God, but as the informational blurb states many people are skeptical seeing the disciplines not as an invitation, but as a rule ...more

The author got me at the 'foreword' intro. "All my favorite stories are, essentially, stories about God or stories about food, and the very best are stories about both."

A good book for me, not always, indicates many post-it tabs sticking out of pages.
I absolutely devoured this book like a bowl of yummy porridge.
Every analogy/connection made to baking process, I enjoyed it. I loved that Preston could find divinity in his passion/hobby.

Some of quotes I marked:

This book worked hand in hand with the Bible Study FINDING I AM that I had finished recently. Completely unexpected, they are very compatible. Regardless, this book is a treasure to behold. Yancey's conversational yet instructional tones pack a punch of wisdom to savor and to return to again and again. Most importantly, he reminds us that we are not in this journey alone, and we are to mimic Jesus: our table should be filled with unexpected guests and we should always be looking for ways to hono ...more

I thought this book was okay. It was hard to figure out what kind of book it was trying to be. Is it a faith memoir, a la Glennon Melton, Sarah Bessey and Rachel Held Evans? Was it about the meaning of bread? Was it about faith and baking? Is it about following the disciplines? is it a devotional? Am I supposed to learn anything about the bread recipe or process besides just baking it over and over? He spends too much time talking about walkin

Full disclosure: I received a free e-galley through NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review.

Mr. Yancey’s book includes devotions based on spiritual disciplines to deepen our relationship with the Creator. Along with this, he includes the ritual of making bread on a weekly basis to coincide with the disciplines. An excellent appendix follows the text that includes alternative recipes and suggested reading. One of my favorite quotes from the book is:
“Spiritual disciplines are kind

This is one of those books that I will come back to over and over again as I think about prayer and fasting, silence and celebration . . . and when I want to make really awesome bread again. Beautiful, powerful, profound

Baking Bread

Baking breAd and the spiritual journey may be close enough for a metaphor but in my opinion too much for an entire book. It was a struggle to finish.
