"Some meals require an appetite, and others create one. This book is of the latter type. As the Prayer Book puts it, "Let us learn, mark and inwardly digest the Word of God." And I think you'll find, as I have, that Rondi Lauterbach is a masterful chef." --Michael Horton, J. Gresham Machen Professor of Systematic Theology and Apologetics, Westminster Seminary California
"Its blend of fresh ingredientspersonal story, biblical theology, keen insight, and practical applicationmakes it highly recommended." --Nancy Guthrie, author of the Bible study series Seeing Jesus in the Old Testament
"Frazzled exhaustion [for serious Bible study] is symptomatic of spiritual malnutrition. Hungry will whet your appetite to delve deeply into the Scriptures." --Dennis E. Johnson, author, Walking with Jesus through His Word

As a professor, I appreciated her careful references and the appropriate and thoughtful quotations that begin each chapter. Good teaching is bringing the student to a new understanding and doing it with a light touch while encouraging the student's involvement. She does this.
A worthy read, even a second or third time, even for those not of her religious persuasion. An effective book that causes the reader to think.
1. Rondi's writing is saturated with the love of Christ and the Gospel of Jesus. You can tell she is speaking out of her personal experience of communion with God.
2. She has a way of turning a phrase that makes it easily accessible for a wide range of audiences. I would give this book to a new Christian to help them get grounded in the Gospel (first half of the book) and help them learn to love and study the Bible for their growth in grace (second half of the book). But I would also give it to a mature believer to help deepen their roots in the Gospel.
3. I appreciate this book as a man. Rondi obviously writes from the perspective of a woman, wife, mother and pastor's wife, but I found it marvelously encouraging as a man, husband and father. It helped me to diagnose my own spiritual hunger and see the ways I seek to satisfy it with junk food. It also helped me to see that my hunger is built into me so that I might learn to hunger and thirst after God alone. This book not only built me up personally, it also gave me a window into my wife's life and what she experiences as a wife, mother and pastor's wife. It made me want to read this with her to help point her to Jesus.
4. I appreciate this book as a pastor. I plan on recommending this book to others to others because it is rich food for the spiritually hungry. Her Christ-centered Bible study approach in the last half of the book is worth sharing for all who would seek to delve into study of the Bible with eyes to find Jesus on every page.
5. Many Christians have lived for years with a low level guilt because we wish we would or could give ourselves to personal Bible study and prayer more than we do. In chapter 7 ("Come") Rondi reminds us that "Jesus fulfilled all the conditions of the covenant so that we could sit down and eat with Him. He wants to change us from slaves into daughters (and sons). He wants to reassure us that He loves us apart from what we produce or fail to produce. He is eager to sustain our lives with His." (p.152) The good news is that, even when we can only snatch a few moments or verses from God's Word, "Jesus makes it plenty because He loves us. The one who created us also sustains us, not on the scarcity of our efforts alone, but on the plenty of His love." (p.151) Rondi gives us tools for signifiant and deep study of the Bible, while also reminding us that God can use little as well as much, by His grace and the power of the Holy Spirit.
Rondi, thank you for setting the table for us and showing us Jesus, the Bread of Life.
