Sara Miles' "Take This Bread -- A Radical Conversion" is the story of an unexpected and terribly inconvenient Christian conversion, told by a very unlikely convert. An activist and journalist, Miles went on to found St. Gregory's weekly Food Pantry at which over 300 families are fed weekly, and to help found more than a dozen food pantries around San Francisco.
Her book tells the story of her career as a chef and journalist, her reluctant, surprising turn to Christianity, and the unexpected consequences of her baptism. Take This Bread is rich with real-life Dickensian characters—thieves, child abusers, millionaires, gangsters, schizophrenics, bishops, white-gloved churchgoers, all blown into Miles’s life by the restless power of her newfound faith and a call to feed people. Ultimately, this achingly beautiful, passionate book invites us all to transform our hunger into action.
