My Very First Book Sneeze Book Review!

Some time ago, I signed up with Thomas Nelson Publishers as a Book Sneeze book review blogger. This is how it works. I choose a book from the list of available books, the kind folks at Thomas Nelson Publishers send me a copy (which I get to keep), I read the book, and then blog about it. You can find out more about the program by clicking the Book Sneeze widget on the bottom right sidebar of this blog.)

My first book is "The Sacred Meal", by Nora Gallagher. Part of the Ancient Practices Series, this book is about the practice of communion, or as some refer to it, The Lord's Supper. In this book, Nora has highlighted detailed descriptions, factual teachings, and Biblical references with stories of her own personal experiences as a Christian observing this special connection with the Lord.

This book is broken up into chapters that attempt to clarify the reasons why a person should practice communion, the history of the practice, and how to separate the myths and misguided additions from the true meaning of this sacred meal.

As a christian, I have always accepted the practice of The Lord's Supper as a serious time of inner reflection that evolves into true worship. "The Sacred Meal" expounds on the process from many different angles, allowing the reader to dig deep and reflect on the details of this beautiful practice.

To hear the author's personal thoughts and emotions helps to create a balance between the meaning of communion and the reality of its true effect. I recommend this book to anyone who is questioning the practice of communion in any capacity.
