How you eat affects the planet – and everyone else on it. What you eat might literally cost the earth. It also has implications for your health, for the grower or producer, and for the way you think about the world. What in God’s Name Are You Eating? faces what many of us choose to ignore in the Western world: we, as adults, have allowed a childlike innocence to mask the real cost of the environment in which we are cocooned, while thousands elsewhere find themselves drought-stricken and starving. “What in God’s name are they not eating?” “Enough” is the simple answer and we are part of the reason why.
The price of ‘life’, as we know it, is high. To those of us who have ‘life’, there is a moral imperative to enable others to share it rather than suppress them. With its advocacy of a globally responsibly discipleship, What in God’s Name Are You Eating? enables us to see how the world’s peoples can have life and a long future. While the reflection is rooted in radical Mennonite Christianity, the challenge is to those of faith – and those of none.

About the Author:

Andrew Francis is a writer, community theologian, and former executive vice-chair of the UK Mennonite Trust. His doctorate (Princeton Theological Seminary) examined how religious communities use food and eat together. He is a published poet, and author of 'Hospitality and Community After Christendom' (2012).

Review:

What in God's Name are you Eating?" might both help us to keep hold of a vision of a more sustainable future and provide a practical manual for the taking of some positive personal initiatives...As this book consistently reminds us, "Just one step starts a journey". Finishing the book, I looked hard at my lunch before me on the table. After eating with a little more awareness of the bigger processes that led to the placing of that food before me, I got up from the table resolving, in fact, to re-establish my own rectory vegetable garden. Aspiration had become application - and that's what we need now to carry us forward.
(Rev Andrew Norman 26th June 2015)
