Food reveals much about our Christian story of salvation. In Stations of the Banquet, Cathy Campbell focuses on a little-explored dimension of our faith - the story of salvation as a food narrative. She provides guidance for individuals and parishes engaged in living out the food and justice challenges of the Gospel.
Similar in function to the traditional Stations of the Cross, each of the fourteen stations of the banquet" considers a dimension of the Christian story of salvation and includes litanies for community prayer. Stations of the Banquet is an invitation to become refreshed, nourished, and challenged at the feet of the one who came as the Bread of Life and invites us all to the fullness of the Banquet.
