    Bread of Life: Savoring the All-Satisfying Goodness of Jesus through the Art of Bread Making by Abigail Dodds (Releases November 9). In this unique book that is part recipe collection and part devotional, the author invites her readers to consider whether our lives are really being satisfied by Jesus, the Bread of Life, or whether we’re just pretending. This book is very direct in tone, and there were parts of it that took me aback a little. But it was written with love, first for the Savior, the Bread of Life: Savoring the All-Satisfying Goodness of Jesus through the Art of Bread Making by Abigail Dodds (Releases November 9). In this unique book that is part recipe collection and part devotional, the author invites her readers to consider whether our lives are really being satisfied by Jesus, the Bread of Life, or whether we’re just pretending. This book is very direct in tone, and there were parts of it that took me aback a little. But it was written with love, first for the Savior, then for his word, and then for the author’s sisters in Christ. It’s also very pretty 🤩 (I’m sure the hard copy puts the ecopy to shame). The bread recipes range in difficulty, but I’m very much a beginner and could manage a few of them. “Whenever we take a rule from our Father and begin examining it apart from him—apart from his character, his fatherly affection, his authoritative goodness—we fall into sin. We become susceptible to lies. Why? Because the rules were never meant to exist apart from the God who gave them to us.” Thank you Netgalley and Crossway for the advanced review copy.

I live near Canada's oldest still-running (202 years and counting) water-powered mill and I read recently that their flour production quintupled during the pandemic from people making their own bread! (Arva Mill if you are interested...I get oatmeal in 50-pound bags from them as well!) I am not a bread maker or lover of it (unless it is brioche or a perfect wood-oven Montreal bagel!) but this could get me baking. The recipes are well written and understandable by cooks of all levels and the photos make the food very appealing to myself and other lovers of food out there. There is not "too much Jesus" (okay that is the first time I have written that in a review!) for people who are not Christians...it is just a good book to meld bread making and belief in your higher power and their providing you with food and life. As always, I try to find a reason to not rate with stars as I simply adore emojis (outside of their incessant use by "🙏-ed Social Influencer Millennials/#BachelorNation survivors/Tik-Tok and YouTube Millionaires/snowflakes / literally-like-overusers etc. ") on Instagram and Twitter... Get a real job, people!) so let's give it 🍞🍞🍞🍞

    I had never read a book like this and don't think Crossway has published another book like this (which the author terms as "niche-genre"), so I wasn't quite sure what to think before I started reading it, but I truly appreciated it.

The Bible is rife with imagery about bread and so the author simply takes the reader through the Bible and the themes of bread, some of the chapter titles are, "Full Yet Famished," "When the Manna Isn't Quite What We Were Expecting," and "Kneaded and Shaped by Every Word." Each chapter was well-written, Biblical, and ended with questions for thought. Following each chapter was a bread recipe that the author and her family particularly enjoy. The author explains that as we share our love for baking and share the products of that baking with our family, it is a picture of the Word of Christ that sustains us that we delight to share with others. The act of bread-making can be an act of love. I particularly enjoy making bread and looked forward to the recipes at the end of each chapter. I look forward to making some of them for my family.

    What a beautiful, beautiful book! Truly, every word is lifegiving and warm, as a loaf of fresh bread from a hand of a dear friend. Every recipe included is begging to be made. I always enjoyed baking but this book is taking that love to a next level. As I'm finishing reading this book, my first sourdough starter is happily bubbling on the counter and I can't wait to try the first loaf of bread made out of it. What a beautiful, beautiful book!

    This inspiring devotional book was filled with meaningful essays and delicious-looking recipes. I appreciated Dodds' thoughtful musings on faith and how she connected her daily domestic life to a life of faith and joy. I enjoyed her writing because it felt as though you were sitting at her kitchen table having a conversation with a friend. The recipes looked easy and fun to try and the photos were beautiful. I think this would be a wonderful Christmas gift. This inspiring devotional book was filled with meaningful essays and delicious-looking recipes.
