Our everyday personal, familial, and communalpractices of eating, says Jung, have the potentialfor making us more attentive to our life purposes, moreattuned to our communal identities, and even moremindful of the presence of God.
Juxtaposing practices with values, Jung explores howfood and eating function culturally today. He exploresthe larger dimensions of personal and group eating, thegreat resonance that feasting and food and fasting havewithin the Christian tradition, and how all this figuresvery practically in Christian lifestyle. His work culminatesin a chapter on the Lord's Supper as a model for eatingand the Eucharist as an occasion for sharing with theworldwide family of God.
