From the Publisher
Saying grace is an ancient and vital tradition the world over. To begin with, it provides a space, a moment of stillness, in which to relinquish the activities of the day and allow the mind to settle. Then, as we acknowledge the source of our nourishment, we are filled with astonishment at the generosity of the Creator, with gratitude, and with praise. In bringing the body, mind, and heart together, we come to ourselves, and rememebr who we are and why we are here. For some families, a meal is the only time everyone is present and so the opportunity to enjoy one another and really celebrate the occasions is not to be lost. For many, a meal is also the only time that there is any memory of the Divine. Saying grace establishes an immediate connection with that memory. In such a moment, when our minds are clear and the truth is reinforced by being sounded aloud, we can dedicate the meal and the strength we receive from it to the service of whoever or whatever is before us.
-- Toinette Lippe, editorial director of Bell Tower

Why? First, the book only contains 95 prayers, plus a nice introductory grace. And of those 95, I would only say that about 55 could be considered mealtime graces. Many of the others are nice prayers and blessings and a few nice sayings but shouldn't be considered as graces. Grace by definition means "giving thanks," and if it is to be used for a meal it should also mention food and/or eating. By that criteria, almost half of the offerings in this book aren't graces because they don't mention food or eating and/or giving thanks. In the end, this book might better be called "100 Prayers and Mealtime Blessings."
Some have also mentioned the price, which in this case would seem a bit steep, especially if you were expecting something other than you received. Nevertheless, I found this book interesting, helpful, and refreshing. It would certainly make for a nice gift for someone who enjoys prayers, blessings, and graces.
