Description:
Like many seekers of the authentic life, Fred Bahnson sought answers to big questions like "What does it mean to follow God?" and "How should I live my life?" But after divinity school at Duke, Bahnson began to find answers not in a pulpit, but at the handle of a plow. After his agrarian conversion, Bahnson started a faith-based community garden in rural North Carolina to help its members grow real food and to feed his own spiritual hunger.

Soil and Sacrament tells the story of how Bahnson and people of faith all over American are re-rooting themselves in the land, reconnecting with their food and each other, and praying with their very lives the prayer of the early Christian monks: "We beg you, make us truly alive." Through his journeys to four different faith communities--Catholic, Protestant, Pentecostal, and Jewish--Bahnson explores the connections between spiritual nourishment and the way we feed our bodies.

Soil and Sacrament is a book about communion in its deepest sense--an inspiring and joyful meditation on what grows above the earth, beneath it, and inside each one of us.
