Book Review: The Sacred Meal by Nora Gallagher


The sacred meal that is part of our faith does more than connect us to the holy, it connects us to each other.

“I think Jesus wanted his disciples and everyone who came after him to remember what they had together. What they made together. What it meant to be together. How the things he did could not have been done without them.”

In her inimitable style of memoir and personal reflection, Nora Gallagher explores the beauty and mystery of this most fascinating of topics. Whether exploring the history of Christian communion, taking us inside the workings of a soup kitchen, or sharing times of joy and sadness with friends, she reminds us what it means to partake of, and be part of, the body of Christ.

A volume in the eight book classic series, The Ancient Practices, with a foreword by Phyllis Tickle, General Editor.

Those who know me know I do not read too many religious books. This one however stood out to me as one that might be a good one to read. I did enjoy it; it takes a good look at the sacred meal, or the Eucharist. Anyone who is Christian or even someone who isn’t who would like to take a fresh look at the Eucharist offering should take a look at this book; I guarantee it will make you think.
