Come and eat A celebration of love and grace around the everyday table

Bri McKoy, 1984-

Book - 2017

"In today's busy and often superficial world, we all crave something deeper and truer. Maybe it's relationships that go beyond the surface or gatherings that allow for joy and pain. Bri McKoy tells us this is within reach! All we need is a table, open hearts, and a simple invitation: come and eat. McKoy invites us to discover how a common dining-room table can be transformed into a place where brokenness falls away to reveal peace and fellowship. Whether the table is laid with bounty or with meager offerings, whether it is surrounded by the Body of Christ or homeless, broken souls, she shows us that healing begins when we say, "Come in. I may not know you, but I know your maker. And so I offer you my heart." For all... those who are hungry and craving more of God's kingdom in their homes, Come and Eat offers recipes, tips, and questions to jumpstart conversation, while reminding us that fellowship in God's love is always the most remembered, most cherished nourishment. Because when we make room for others, we make room for God, and our homes become a vibrant source of life, just as he means them to be."--Page 4 of cover.

Review by Publisher's Weekly Review

Practical tips fill McKoy's gracious debut, an ode to food and spiritual community. McKoy, the founder of the food blog Our Savory Life and leader of the Christian mission-oriented blogging network Compassion International, expresses a deep desire to live out a Christian faith with integrity and purpose. Upbeat chapters rotate among stories, recipes, table prayers, and questions for discussion, all of which will inspire readers to bring these practices into their daily lives. This work will especially appeal to readers who are eager to make mealtime an opportunity to dig deeper into their Christian faith and to share food and faith with others. Making the table a welcoming space rather than just a platform for food is a thread that runs through anecdotes and recipes; readers looking for comment or direction on food choice as an act of faith will be disappointed. Cheerful and big-hearted, McKoy's book reminds readers of the power in the act of sharing food. (Sept.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
