Feasts and Famines Christians Think About Food
There may be no acts that are more common, more basic, or more freighted with social implications than the production and consumption of food. Yet in spite of this—or perhaps because of this—few of us think about making and eating food from a theological perspective.
Join conversations with Shannon Jung, professor at St. Paul School of Theology and author of Food For Life: A Spirituality and Ethics of Eating, as well as Columbia’s own Charlie Raynal (director of advanced studies and associate professor of theology), Kim Long (assistant professor of worship), and Walter Brueggemann (professor of Old Testament, emeritus), as they help us all think about what, why, how,
and with whom we eat. Back issues of the journal, including last spring’s “The Seduction of the Familiar,” are available at www.atthispoint.net.
