JESUS, BREAD, AND CHOCOLATE

… In the stories of a baker, a farmer, craft brewers, a chocolatier, a woodworker, one of the top coffee experts in the world, and his own musical history, John J. Thompson searches for truth rippling beneath the surface of the handcrafted and small batch culture shift happening all around us. Inspired by the artisanal way and driven by a personal journey to a deeper spirituality, Thompson suggests that keeping the faith today starts with going back to the gospel’s grassroots and extricating it from the clutches of industrialism.

In Jesus, Bread and Chocolate, John J. Thompson serves up a delectable mix of personal story, keen observations of evangelical culture, and scriptural reflection. The result is a filling and satisfying meal for the growing number of people in our churches who are starving for something more substantial than consumer Christianity.
– C. Christopher Smith, coauthor of Slow Church and editor of The Englewood Review of Books
