Product Description

Review

This volume constitutes a very welcome addition to the literature on food and religion. There is no other work that compares with it.--Ken Albala, Professor of History, University of the Pacific

"Religion, Food, and Eating in North America" sets before us both fresh and mature fare that nurtures not only our understanding of foodways, but also of American religion and the wider study of religions.--Charles Wallace, Associate Professor of Religious Studies, Willamette University

A welcome addition to the literature on food and religion. No other work compares with it.--Ken Albala, coeditor of "Food and Faith in Christian Culture"

Fresh and mature fare that nurtures not only our understanding of foodways but also of American religion and the wider study of religions.--Charles Wallace, Willamette University

From a Georgia farm to the salmon runs of the Pacific Northwest, from Sylvester Graham to hip vegans, Americans draw tight links between their food and their faith. These essays investigate a broad set of religious traditions, and the results are theoretically rich yet accessible to nonspecialists. The volume helps us think about what it means to be American, as well as what it means to be religious, and forces us to broaden our definition of religion, with implications for health, commerce, and the environment.--Daniel Sack, author of "Whitebread Protestants: Food and Religion in American Culture"
