We Will Feast : Rethinking Dinner, Worship, and the Community of God
by Kendall Vanderslice and D. L. Mayfield


Overview -

Explores the practice of eating together as Christian worship

The gospel story is filled with meals. It opens in a garden and ends in a feast. Records of the early church suggest that believers met for worship primarily through eating meals. Over time, though, churches have lost focus on the centrality of food-- and with it a powerful tool for unifying Christ's diverse body.

But today a new movement is under way, bringing Christians of every denomination, age, race, and sexual orientation together around dinner tables. Men and women nervous about stepping through church doors are finding God in new ways as they eat together. Kendall Vanderslice shares stories of churches worshiping around the table, introducing readers to the rising contem-porary dinner-church movement. We Will Feast provides vision and inspiration to readers longing to experience community in a real, physical way.
