BOOK EXCERPT:

Award-winning journalist Simran Sethi explores the history and cultural importance of our most beloved tastes, paying homage to the ingredients that give us daily pleasure, while providing a thoughtful wake-up call to the homogenization that is threatening the diversity of our food supply. Food is one of the greatest pleasures of human life. Our response to sweet, salty, bitter, or sour is deeply personal, combining our individual biological characteristics, personal preferences, and emotional connections. Bread, Wine, Chocolate illuminates not only what it means to recognize the importance of the foods we love, but also what it means to lose them. Award-winning journalist Simran Sethi reveals how the foods we enjoy are endangered by genetic erosion—a slow and steady loss of diversity in what we grow and eat. In America today, food often looks and tastes the same, whether at a San Francisco farmers market or at a Midwestern potluck. Shockingly, 95% of the world’s calories now come from only thirty species. Though supermarkets seem to be stocked with endless options, the differences between products are superficial, primarily in flavor and brand. Sethi draws on interviews with scientists, farmers, chefs, vintners, beer brewers, coffee roasters and others with firsthand knowledge of our food to reveal the multiple and interconnected reasons for this loss, and its consequences for our health, traditions, and culture. She travels to Ethiopian coffee forests, British yeast culture labs, and Ecuadoran cocoa plantations collecting fascinating stories that will inspire readers to eat more consciously and purposefully, better understand familiar and new foods, and learn what it takes to save the tastes that connect us with the world around us.

BOOK EXCERPT:

At Chartres Cathedral, for the first time in medieval art, the lowest register of stained-glass windows depicts working artisans and merchants instead of noble and clerical donors. Jane Welch Williams challenges the prevailing view that pious town tradesmen donated these windows. In Bread, Wine, and Money, she uncovers a deep antagonism between the trades and the cathedral clergy in Chartres; the windows, she argues, portray not town tradesmen but trusted individuals that the fearful clergy had taken into the cloister as their own serfs. Williams weaves a tight net of historical circumstances, iconographic traditions, exegetical implications, political motivations, and liturgical functions to explain the imagery in the windows of the trades. Her account of changing social relationships in thirteenth-century Chartres focuses on the bakers, tavern keepers, and money changers whose bread, wine, and money were used as means of exchange, tithing, and offering throughout medieval society. Drawing on a wide variety of original documents and scholarly work, this book makes important new contributions to our knowledge of one of the great monuments of Western culture.

BOOK EXCERPT:

No occasion offers greater opportunity or a more imposing challenge for communicating the gospel than Holy Communion. The sacrament itself takes one to the very heart of the Christian faith. What a pastor says to congregants who come to share the Eucharist ought to focus on the central realities of Christian truth. And it needs to be said succinctly! Scripture records numerous conversations Jesus held around the dinner table: with Matthew and Zacchaeus; in Simon the Pharisee's home; meals shared with his special friends Mary, Martha, and Lazarus. Well known are his feeding of the multitude with the loaves and fish and his Last Supper with the disciples. For Jesus mealtime was uniquely an occasion for God's truth to be shared and for significant decision-making to take place. This book offers messages that provide themes, ideas, and illustrations appropriate for Holy Communion that pastors and lay persons will find helpful. "Speaking out of the heart of the Christian faith and from the insights of a successful pastor; Robert Stanley has given us a most helpful resource. Here is a conversation starter for adult study groups, a book for quiet reading by any searching Christian, and a model for pastors on how to enrich the communion service." Bishop David I. Lawson "Conversations Over Bread And Wine is an inspiring and amazingly useful guide for everyone who wants to be serious about his or her spiritual journey... This is an excellent book!" Rev. DeWane Zimmerman Robert A. Stanley has over a 40-year period been the pastor of churches throughout California and Arizona. He served for six years as United Methodist Superintendent of the Tucson District. He is a graduate of Candler School of Theology, Emory University, Atlanta, Georgia, from which he received the Master of Divinity degree.

BOOK EXCERPT:

The title of Bread and Wine (Leb I Vino) derives from the old Bulgarian custom of hospitality to strangers; it is considered a great discourtesy if visitors to Bulgarian homes are not offered food and drink, and an even greater discourtesy if this offer is then turned down. “It was a lesson I quickly learned,” says Trefor, “and one that afforded me much pleasure, inspiration, and – I might add – several king-size hangovers!”Fans of short stories and Magical Realist fiction will enjoy this collection of stories, which range from those inspired by the dark and bloody history of the 500-year-long Ottoman occupation, the folk-lore and onto those reflecting modern-day Bulgarian life; an eclectic mix from bawdy comedy to psychological bleakness.
