Editorial Reviews


"Pull up a chair, pour yourself a glass of wine, and enjoy the friendship and hospitality found around Niequist's table. The author of Cold Tangerines and Bittersweet serves up portions of friendship, family, and faith, with sides of humor, insight, and favorite recipes, for a satisfying read that can double as a group study. (A discussion guide and recommended readings are tucked in the back of the book, with recipes and a sample menu for book/cooking clubs.) Niequist writes with vulnerability and honesty that make the reader hunger to be one of the friends and family members who grace her table. Struggles with getting pregnant, juggling family and career, and making time for deep friendships are among the life events discussed against the backdrop of meals. Cooking enthusiasts, whether they are experienced or are novices, will enjoy the talk about food and will want to try the recipes featured at the end of each chapter. Yet while recipes for bacon-wrapped dates and dark chocolate sea-salted butter toffee sound yummy, the emphasis is more on spiritual nourishment and how God feeds hungry souls through relationships." - Publisher's Weekly, Mar. 26


Bread and Wine resurrects the table as the center of the home, the place where food and drink morph into fellowship and long memories. This book transported me back to the kitchens of my life --- to the fellowship and joy and sorrow of what happens when the family gathers around the table to be family. Churches need books about kitchen tables because they value the home and family and the treasured memories of family stories told at the table. -- Scot McKnight, , Northern Seminary

Bam! Yummo! This is a tasty and delicious book you’ll want to savor from cover to cover. -- Margaret Feinberg, , Author of Wonderstruck and Scouting the Divine, (

Shauna Niequist has written a book of surpassing delight. To enter it is not simply to be a reader but to be a friend. I did not want it to end. -- John Ortberg, , senior pastor of Menlo Park Presbyterian Church and author of Who Is This Man?

No one combines all my treasured things like Shauna does in Bread and Wine: beautiful words, delicious food, recipes like the ones you jot down on the back of a napkin in shorthand, with hints and adaptations written off to the side, real-life stories, laughter. Then I read a sentence like this: “Love isn’t something you prove or earn, but something you receive or allow, like a balm, like a benediction, even at your very worst,” and I decide to send this book to everyone I know. -- Jen Hatmaker, , author of Interrupted and 7: An Experimental Mutiny Against Excess

This magnificent book is a feast for the soul! A wise, thoughtful, and delightful read that will nourish your heart. -- Ian Morgan Cron, , bestselling author of Jesus, My Father, the CIA, and Me: a Memoir . . . of Sorts and Chasing Francis

Shauna Niequist has a way with words that makes you feel more human, more alive. Every phrase is woven together in a way that inspires wonder at the most ordinary of events we are prone topass by. This book will make you hungry --- not just for food, but for life and love to the full. It certainly did for me. -- Jeff Goins, , author of Wrecked: When a Broken World Slams into Your Comfortable Life

Bread and Wine is a new book about an ancient meal, but more than a meal, a book about the people seated at the table, and about the laughing, and about the joy of saying hello and the pain of saying good-bye. After reading this book you may feel as you do driving away from dinner with a friend --- grateful and full. -- Donald Miller, , author of Blue Like Jazz and A Million Miles in a Thousand Years

Shauna Niequist’s beautiful word painting in Bread and Wine is a poetic reminder to appreciate the rituals, people, and sensory experiences of our everyday lives. Her words invite us into her kitchen, and her stories challenge us to remain attentive to the many delights that complement life’s hardships and the ways in which we can share them with others. -- Kelle Hampton, , New York Times bestselling author of Bloom: Finding Beauty in the Unexpected

Bread and Wine is one of those rare books that grabs all of you ---your mind, body, and spirit. Shauna’s soulful storytelling made me laugh, reminded me that I’m not alone, and gave me a new lens on some old struggles. There’s something sacred about this kind of truth telling. I couldn’t put this book down. -- Brene' Brown, , New York Times bestselling author of Daring Greatly
