In The Feast, Josh Graves explores the terribly important question of what it means to reconfigure Christianity as a way of life, instead of a mere system of beliefs. Along the way, we are reminded of the sharp, sometimes jagged edges of the Jesus story which challenge our pre-conceived notions of what discipleship entails. But the story is not just of the cost of discipleship, but its joy too: So Josh also gives us a picture of a great feast, indeed, a compelling picture of a life lived in genuine liberty and thus beauty.Writing humbly and without condemnation at a time when Christianity is clearly in decline in the West, Josh Graves invites Christians to imagine with him what it looks like for things to be on earth as they are in heaven and to prayerfully contend for it to be so.

“Here is a book that asks one of the most dangerous questions in the world: ‘What if Jesus really meant the stuff he said?’ The Feast is an invitation to taste the goodness of God in Jesus, the Jesus who has been able to survive the mistakes of Christendom. And it is my prayer that all of us who feast on Christ will become what we eat—for the world is starving for Good News that they can see and taste and feel.” — Shane Claiborne, author, activist, and recovering sinner; www.thesimpleway.org

“In my ministry on a college campus I find young Christians and old who are yearning for a spirituality that demands everything and returns joy unending. Like loaves and fishes with baskets leftover, this book will fill those who hunger after God with good things. Read, and feast on the gospel of Christ. “ —Craig Kocher, Associate Dean of the Chapel, Duke University

“Young adults will be especially drawn to this book: it deals with the messy world in which they are coming of age. And of course, older folks who have grown tired and disillusioned with religion-as-usual will also find a feast in these pages.” —Brian McLaren, from the Foreword
