Material type: TextTextPublisher: New York : Ballantine Books, 2008Edition: 2008 Ballantine Books trade pbk. edDescription: xvi, 294 p. ; 21 cmISBN: 9780345495792 (pbk.); 0345495799 (pbk.)Subject(s): Miles, Sara, 1952- | Christian converts -- United States -- Biography | Church work with the poor -- United States | Food relief -- United StatesLOC classification: BV4935.M525 | A3 2007Summary: Raised as an atheist, Sara Miles lived an enthusiastically secular life. Then early one morning, for no earthly reason, she wandered into a church. "I was certainly not interested in becoming a Christian," she writes, "or, as I thought of it rather less politely, a religious nut." But she ate a piece of bread, took a sip of wine, and found herself radically transformed. The sacrament of communion has sustained Miles ever since, in a faith she'd scorned, in work she'd never imagined. Here she tells how the seeds of her conversion were sown, and what her life has been like since she took that bread: as a lesbian left-wing journalist, religion for her was not about angels or good behavior or piety. She writes about the economy of hunger and the ugly politics of food; the meaning of prayer and the physicality of faith. Here, in this passionate book, is the living communion of Christ.--From publisher description.
