Food, God, and Friendship: Metaphors for the Experience of the Divine in Jewish and Christian Tradition

Jonathan Brumberg-Kraus, professor and chair of religion and coordinator of Jewish Studies at Wheaton College has written extensively on meals in Jewish and early Christian tradition, contributes regularly to the Oxford Symposium on Food and Cookery, has been on the Steering Committee of the "Meals in the Greco-Roman World" Seminar of the Society of Biblical Literature, and has contributed to the Seminar's forthcoming publication, Meals in Early Judaism: Social Formation at the Table.  He is the author of the forthcoming book More Than Kosher on Jewish food and Jewish meals, and for the past 15 years has taught a First Year undergraduate seminar at Wheaton on "the Rituals of Dinner" which culminates in a sustainable banquet.  Most importantly, he's sophomore Max Brumberg-Kraus' dad!
