Meals have always been important across societies and cultures – a time for friends and families to come together. An important part of relationships, meals are vital to our social health. Or as author Tim Chester puts it, Food connects.
Tim argues that meals are also deeply theological – an important part of Christian fellowship and mission. He observes that Luke’s Gospel is full of stories of Jesus at meals. And these meals represent something bigger. In six chapters Tim shows how they enact grace, community, hope, mission, salvation and promise.
Moving from New Testament times to today, the author applies biblical truth to challenge our contemporary understandings of hospitality. He urges sacrificial giving and loving around the table, helping readers consider how meals can be about serving others and sharing the grace of Christ.

Tim Chester expounds meal-based passages in Luke to show how meals can be means of better understanding the gospel. Indeed the Gospel is an invitation to eat with Jesus. God made food to be good, meals are a means of building relationships. Food is not just fuel, nor is to be made into an idol. Let this book help you use meals to reach out to people, and see them as rich pictures of the Gospel.
