How shall we then eat? This imaginative book offers a substantive meditation on thoughtful eating. Arguing that food is “a gift of love,” Wirzba employs a sophisticated trinitarian theological lens to evaluate today’s food production and consumption practices and to show how their destructive effects can impact our souls. With Wendell Berry in the footnotes, agrarian Wirzba is radically committed to a sustainable, localized economy. Rich reflections on the Eucharist orient our understanding and practice of sacramental eating. Once you consume his literary feast, you’ll never eat without thinking again. (Cambridge)
