The story of an unexpected and terribly inconvenient Christian conversion, told by a very unlikely convert,

Take This Bread is not only a spiritual memoir but a call to action. Raised as an atheist, Sara Miles lived an enthusiastically secular life as a restaurant cook and writer. Then one morning, for no earthly reason, she wandered into a church.

She ate a piece of bread, took a sip of wine, and found herself radically transformed, embracing a faith she'd scorned and which would lead to feeding others in a way that she'd never imagined. Sara started a food pantry giving away literally tons of food from around the same altar where she'd first received the body of Christ, and providing hundreds of hungry families with free groceries each week.

Take This Bread is rich with real-life Dickensian characters-church ladies, millionaires, schizophrenics, bishops, and gangsters - all blown into Miles' life by the relentless force of her new-found calling. Here, in this beautiful, passionate book, is Christ's living communion.

`The finest confession of faith I've read in years. . . . This is the kind of book I would wish to write, were I wise enough or skilled enough or candid enough to do so.' -- Phyllis Tickle, author of The Divine Hours and former religion editor for Publishers Weekly `Energized . . .. [There are] many tasty morsels in this surprising book.' * O: The Oprah Magazine * `A memoir that blew me away . . . I am going to foist this on every single hard-core left-wing religious nut I know. And make no mistake: there are many of us.' -- Anne Lamott * Time * `Not since I read The Seven Story Mountain by Thomas Merton, or Augustine's Confessions, have I read such a powerful autobiographical account. This book is a gem. . . . How this story ends will remain with you forever.' * The Decatur Daily *
