Book Endorsements

If you want a primer of the inner workings of an organic faith that is impacted by artisans and practitioners from other walks of handcrafted life, I doubt you’ll find a better book than Jesus, Bread, and Chocolate.

-Randy Ross, blogger and marketing specialist for The Parable Group

Jesus, Bread, and Chocolate is fresh and enlightening. John’s stories and his memories of discovering and rediscovering music and the power of the arts remind me that it is all spiritual as it weaves itself into the fabric of our lives. I see why the psalmist implores us to “taste and see that the Lord is good.” I pray we can all be an enticing aroma to others for the One who valued a good meal and beverage with his friends..

… melds memoir and experimentation, showing us how the basic stuff of life like food and music turn out not to be so basic after all, but instead are an avenue for renewed connection, joy, and faith. It’s about learning how to cultivate our tastes again for food and faith that connect us with flavor and mystery. Thompson helps us see that embracing authenticity in all areas of our lives, from food to relationships, brings us closer to who we want to be and what we suspected Christianity was really about. This book is satisfying, but I must warn you: it will make you hungry … for the good stuff.
