"I've never read a book like this before! Part history book, part cookbook, part call-to-action and resource for spiritual formation. The Spirit of Soul Food is suited for a variety of audiences ready for the timely challenge of inviting a deeper integration of our ethics, actions, and daily bread."--Rev. Dr. Heber Brown III, Pleasant Hope Baptist Church
"Carter's excellent book breaks important new ground at the crucial nexus of race, religion, food, animals, and the environment. It is essential reading for anyone seeking to address this cutting-edge territory, which is crucial for the futures of human and more-than-human life."--David L. Clough, University of Chester
"Christopher Carter's The Spirit of Soul Food is a deeply enlightening discussion of food, foodways, and how the lived experiences of people can shape and be shaped by what they grow, acquire, and eat." --Journal of Folklore Research Reviews
"The Spirit of Soul Food is a must-read for anyone interested in challenging the industrial food system in practical terms." --Reading Religion
