With autism diagnoses rising, more and more parents find the challenges of caring for an autistic child added to the everyday strains and stresses – and joys -- of family life. In a deeply personal, honest, humorous set of essays, Martha Johnson Bourlakas grapples with life -- life as a person of faith, life as a wife and mother, life as a clergy spouse (her husband is bishop of Southwestern Virginia), life as the parent of a developmentally disabled young adult, life as one unable to maintain pretense. Reading these essays is like sitting down over coffee with a good friend to commiserate and laugh with someone who understands.

What is a Love Feast? How did the early church celebrate the Love Feast? How might Christians today celebrate the Love Feast? In Recovering the Love Feast, Paul Stutzman addresses these questions, offering a unique blend of liturgical history and practical theology. Part I outlines the history of the Love Feast, noting its prevalence in early church worship, its gradual decline, and its reemergence in the practices of several Pietist groups (e.g., the Moravians, Methodists, and Brethren). Particular focus is given to five elements of the celebration, that is: eucharistic preparation, feetwashing, the fellowship meal, the holy kiss, and the Eucharist proper. In Part II, Stutzman argues that the Love Feast is a valuable Christian practice and a celebration worth recovering in those traditions that may have forgotten the feast. Rather than prescribing a specific method for celebrating the Love Feast, Stutzman proposes that there are five key disciplines that today's Love Feasts should embody: submission, love, confession, reconciliation, and thanksgiving. This book encourages Christians from a range of traditions to experiment with reclaiming the Love Feast, with the hope that each celebration serves as an act of worship to God and an authentic expression of Christian discipleship.

Meals have always been important across societies and cultures, a time for friends and families to come together. An important part of relationships, meals are vital to our social health. Author Tim Chester sums it up: “Food connects.” Chester argues that meals are also deeply theological—an important part of Christian fellowship and mission. He observes that the book of Luke is full of stories of Jesus at meals. These accounts lay out biblical principles. Chester notes, “The meals of Jesus represent something bigger.” Six chapters in A Meal with Jesus show how they enact grace, community, hope, mission, salvation, and promise. Moving from biblical times to the modern world, Chester applies biblical truth to challenge our contemporary understandings of hospitality. He urges sacrificial giving and loving around the table, helping readers consider how meals can be about serving others and sharing the grace of Christ.

This series of messages on the life of the church, the body of Christ serves as a follow-up companion volume to "But We See Jesus"; Messages on the Life of the Lord Jesus Christ. Having come to see Christ Jesus, we are now ready to see His church, about which Jesus had declared this: “I will build my [church], and hades’ gates shall not prevail against it” (Matthew 16:18b). From this declaration we realize that the church is not the product of the work of man, but it is the Lord Jesus himself who builds the church. Hence, in Scripture, the church is called “the Christ” (I Corinthians 12:12c; Ephesians 3:4b, 8b Darby). The New Testament book of Acts gives us a panoramic view of the churches in the first century. It also provides us with a prophetic picture of the churches throughout the centuries. As we review the histories of these various churches that are narrated for us in Acts, may we learn all the lessons God wants us to learn from them.

There is a family of 5 daughters, each an outstanding cook—Jane, Ellen, Sibyl, Anne, Susan. And their brother’s wife, Yvonne, who cooks like a dream. Not surprisingly, there’s the matriarch, Esther Rose, also a great cook. The Daily Feast is the collection of irresistibly tasty, but easy-to-prepare recipes which have won their way onto the Graber families’ tables. These are the recipes they prepare for their guests and the dishes they make when the whole extended family gets together. For years, the Graber family cooks have passed their favorite recipes back and forth among themselves as they’ve left their Indiana home and scattered around the world, always learning to make and love the local dishes wherever they’ve lived. But always at the center of the growing collection were their own versions of beloved American dishes. In The Daily Feast, each of the 7 Graber cooks presents 3 complete menus—one for a soup meal, the second for a family week-night supper, and the third for a more elaborate guest dinner. In addition, the Grabers offer menus and recipes for their favorite special-occasion meals. An irresistible sampling of recipes found in The Daily Feast: Penne with Eggplant, Tomatoes, Fresh Mozzarella and Herbs Baked Chicken Caribe Roasted Sweet Potatoes with Lime and Cilantro Easy Blender Banana Nut Bread with Jamaica Glaze Cave Creek Carnitas Pear and Gorgonzola Salad with Orange Dressing Lemon-Barbecued Meat Loaves Fresh Tomato Chutney Bourbon-Glazed Salmon with Sesame Seeds Naan Bread Dijon, Bacon, and Potato Salad Grilled Italian Shrimp Skewers Sweet Ricotta Fritters Fresh Strawberry Pie Full-color photography of the finished dishes underlines the family’s daily practice of beauty and good taste around the table! Skyhorse Publishing, along with our Good Books and Arcade imprints, is proud to publish a broad range of cookbooks, including books on juicing, grilling, baking, frying, home brewing and winemaking, slow cookers, and cast iron cooking. We’ve been successful with books on gluten-free cooking, vegetarian and vegan cooking, paleo, raw foods, and more. Our list includes French cooking, Swedish cooking, Austrian and German cooking, Cajun cooking, as well as books on jerky, canning and preserving, peanut butter, meatballs, oil and vinegar, bone broth, and more. While not every title we publish becomes a New York Times bestseller or a national bestseller, we are committed to books on subjects that are sometimes overlooked and to authors whose work might not otherwise find a home.

Acclaimed author Rick Bass decided to thank all of his writing heroes in person, one meal at a time, in this "rich smorgasbord of a memoir . . . a soul-nourishing, road-burning act of tribute" (New York Times Book Review). "Exuberant . . . A classic . . . This is a rich bounty of a book." --Publishers Weekly (starred review) "A master."--Boston Globe "One of the very best writers we have."--San Francisco Chronicle "Both mythic and intimate . . . A virtuoso."--O: The Oprah Magazine "The beauty of his sentences recalls the stylistic finesse of Cormac McCarthy and Willa Cather."--Chicago Tribune From his bid to become Eudora Welty's lawn boy to the time George Plimpton offered to punch him in the nose, lineage has always been important to Rick Bass. Now at a turning point--in his midfifties, with his long marriage dissolved and his grown daughters out of the house--Bass strikes out on a journey of thanksgiving. His aim: to make a memorable meal for each of his mentors, to express his gratitude for the way they have shaped not only his writing but his life. The result, an odyssey to some of America's most iconic writers, is also a record of self-transformation as Bass seeks to recapture the fire that drove him as a young man. Along the way we join in escapades involving smuggled contraband, an exploding grill, a trail of blood through Heathrow airport, an episode of dog-watching with Amy Hempel in Central Park, and a near run-in with plague-ridden prairie dogs on the way to see Lorrie Moore, as well as heartwarming and bittersweet final meals with the late Peter Matthiessen, John Berger, and Denis Johnson. Poignant, funny, and wistful, The Traveling Feast is a guide to living well and an unforgettable adventure that nourishes and renews the spirit.
