Bless This Food: Ancient and Contemporary Graces from Around the World

 

by Adrian Butash

Book Description

Sharing food is the most universal cultural experience, connecting people to one another, to nature, and to the infinite. Expressing thanks for food was the world's first act of worship and is common to every known society. Saying grace before meals is a wonderful family tradition to observe, as it acknowledges bounty and our daily sustenance as gifts from the divine.

Bless This Food gathers 160 timeless mealtime blessings, including prayers from a variety of religions, ancient traditions, and visionary authors, as well as two in American Sign Language. Background on the prayers and the traditions they represent provides context for each eloquent blessing. Open the book to any page, and find a delightful way to enrich any mealtime gathering.
