Summary

What does our Catholic faith teach us about eating well? Some of us eat too much food. Or we eat too little. Often, we eat without gratitude, without charity, without respect. But, as award-winning author and food-blogger Emily Stimpson Chapman explains in The Catholic Table, with a sacramental worldview, the supernatural gift of God's grace can transform and heal us through the food we make, eat, and share.

Engaging listen

The subject matter of this book covers a wide range. From theology of the body to overcoming eating disorders to understanding the role of food in Catholic faith and practice. It is also very engagingly written (spoken?) with plenty of humour and insight. The real highlight, however, is the narration, which I found passionate and personable. It is a wonderful listen. I don't usually write reviews but this audiobook deserves more than a perfunctory star rating.

This book shifted my worldview to incarnational

Emily’s stunning prose is to savor and helped me more clearly see God’s hand in all, Christ in all. Thank you for such a powerful book. Please write again of the pervasive presence of God in the evocative way you do.

Great read!

Very enjoyable. Finished book before I needed to because it was just too good to stop listening. A friend recommended this book and said it was her favorite of 2019. I can see why she enjoyed it so much. The author keeps you interested and ready for more. I like how she tied her personal story into the book as well. Thank you for sharing your story.

The book I didn't know I needed to listen to.

The message in this book is everything I didn't know I needed to hear. Emily does a wonderful, heartfelt job describing the way we should view food through the eyes of the Catholic Church. From understanding the great way of fasting to celebrating and feasting, I have a new appreciation that is deeper than I had before. This book is especially written for women, as Emily uses her battle with an eating disorder (I'd say it's only about 5-10% of the book, so it's not overbearing) to show how we all can misuse and misunderstand food the way God intended it. I struggle with overeating, and although her story involves anorexia, the message was still completely applicable to me. So glad I just happened to stumble upon this book by mistake. I will be re-listening for many times to come.

Great practical spirituality!

I love that the author read her own book. I felt like I got to know her and now follow her blog!
