Eucharistic Eating – Bibliography


Eucharistic Eating Bibliography

When a book features a link, it is to a review I have written on this blog.

Starting on Monday, March 6, I will be leading a lecture series through the six weeks of Lent, entitled Eucharist Eating. You can find the details of the course over at the St. Philip’s website. The purpose of the class is to look at how we can bring our everyday eating into the Eucharist and the Eucharist into our everyday eating.

This is an ongoing project of mine. This series marks a step along the road. Below I’ve listed a series of books that have or will continue to influence my thinking on the subject. This list is not complete, and I have read most, but not all the books contained therein. I hope as I continue on to work my way through the few that I haven’t been able to read yet.

If you have any suggestion for me to add to this list, please feel free to add them in the comments section beneath the post. Thank you.

8 thoughts on “Eucharistic Eating – Bibliography

  1. Thanks so much for visiting my blog in the piney woods flat lands of Florida’s panhandle, on the Gulf coast, near Pensacola. As a congregant of Christ Church Parish, a wonderful old Episcopal church in downtown Pensacola, I’m particularly intrigued (and inspired) by your evolving bibliography here. Have you read Tamar E. Adler’s An Everlasting Meal: Cooking with Economy and Grace? (https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/13111958-an-everlasting-meal?) The author’s writing is wonderful and incorporating her concepts into my own kitchen have made a positive difference.
