Reviews

Advance praise for Take This Bread

"A love song to the feast at the altar and the feast of a food pantry written with grit, authority and integrity."
-Nora Gallagher, author of Changing Light

"Sara Miles's joy, confusion, and passion for the Christian life, together with her skill as a professional journalist and the fullness of her own humanity, have produced what has to be the finest confession of faith I've read in years. Take This Bread is a good, tight, absorbing read."
-Phyllis Tickle, author of The Divine Hours and former Religion Editor for Publishers Weekly

"This book is a stunner. Beautifully and simply written, it is a wonderfully straightforward account of a life and a conversion which will leave many readers, as it left me, tingling with longing that such signs and wonders might emerge in and through our own stories. Sara has come by the great truths of the Christian faith honestly. The story of how people grow through becoming empowered to be givers, and not mere receivers of handouts is a wonderful glimpse at a true emergence of Church."
-James Alison, Catholic theologian, priest, and author of Faith Beyond Resentment

"Some books you can't put down, some you shouldn't-this one's both. Sara Miles's story of spiritual nourishment recalls Patch Adams, but she's also a writer like John Muir or Jane Addams, a gifted stylist whose passion translates to vivid storytelling. Take This Bread is necessary reading, I would think, for anyone who's ever taken a bite out of anything."
-J. C. Hallman, author of The Devil is a Gentleman
