Book Sneeze – The Sacred Meal

Thanks to Jeremy at “Till He Comes” for telling me about another book review program. This program is called “Book Sneeze.”

When you sign up for Book Sneeze, they send you a free book (of your choice) to review. Once you write a review, publish it on your own site, publish it on a consumer site (such as Amazon.com or Barnesandnoble.com), and post a link to your review at Book Sneeze, you can request a another free book to review.

For my first book to review on Book Sneeze, I’ve requested The Sacred Meal by Nora Gallagher. I don’t know what to expect from this book (or the series), but I’m very interested in the common meal shared by the church in the NT (you know, the one that became a symbol of a meal currently called “The Lord’s Supper” or “Communion” or “the Eucharist).

Here is part of the publisher’s description of the book:

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.

So, I’m looking forward to reading and reviewing this book.

Let me know if you decide to join Book Sneeze also.

    I’m signing up for this one too! I love free books and being limited to their selections has me broadening my reading base. Thanks for the link!
