Overview

Sunday Dinners brings readers to the kitchen and dining-room tables of thirteen of America’s favorite pastors and their families as they share their Sunday traditions, mealtime blessings, inspiring stories, strong family values, and favorite recipes.

Research shows that eating dinner together strengthens a family’s bond, and Sunday dinners are especially sacred. They are a time to bring everyone together, catch up, teach children manners and social skills, stay connected with teens, learn about family history and values, and nourish our bodies and souls.

In Sunday Dinners, the pastor families who share their experiences are known not just for their successes in the pulpit and in their communities but also for the strong families they have built. They preach it, and they live it, and that’s inspiring. This is a cookbook to be read and savored, to remind us that no matter how busy we think we are, we can still take time to come together, break bread, and connect with family and good friends.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
In today’s busy world, families don’t often make time to sit down for a meal together. Cowen, editor of the religion and food sections of the Houston Chronicle, presents this compilation of stories and recipes that celebrate the importance of the traditional Sunday meal. Each chapter features a pastor and his or her family, including well-known figures such as Joel Osteen, T.D. Jakes, and George Foreman, who share stories of childhood family meals, traditions, and favorite dishes. Many of the pastors highlighted are from Texas, although a few other states are represented, and this is apparent in some of the recipes, which are typical Southern dishes such as macaroni and cheese, grits, and cornbread. Many of the recipes are traditional comfort foods, but, for some readers, the frequent use of rich ingredients such as butter, cream cheese, and creamed soups may make them suitable only for special occasions rather than weekly options.

Verdict Readers will enjoy the inspirational stories of families coming together at the table as well as the variety of delicious recipes.—Melissa Stoeger, Deerfield P.L., IL

    Title: Sunday Dinners Food, Family, And Faith From Our Favorite

    Genre: Memoirs, Cooking

    When I remember the Sunday dinners when I was growing up I remember that they were much more elaborate than normal weekday meals and Saturday was the day we would be out for family time and was usually something quick and simple. As the daughter of a minister I was blessed to enjoy many a Sunday dinners with my family, neighbors and friends. Meals that we close to holiday meals. The door would be open to friends and family to join us. Often we would have a visiting church speaker or missionary visit and spend the night. Even today I carry on the tradition in my own home.

    Sunday Dinners is a cross of memoirs of various pastors and their favorite Sunday dinner recipes. I enjoyed reading their stories and thoughts on the Sabbath day meals and what they remember most about them now and as they grew up. It was interesting to find that many followed the same traditions and did my family. The are quick, simple stories that will take you back to those family Sundays and bring a smile to your heart. You may recognize some of the names of those pastors and gain a better insight into what makes them such effective ambassadors for our Lord.

    You will also find you mouth watering at the recipes offered to you to try. Along with the beautiful photographs of many of the dishes the recipes and short glimpses into the lives and faith of men and women who have devoted their lives to God make this a very special book. So much more than a cookbook. You will be quick to get your copy today.
