Some books are finished after the manuscript is delivered to the printer.
Others have just begun.
This summer many of you have joined me for the Scouting the Divine Bible study. And this adventure, in many ways, is just beginning.
The people I describe in its pages are connected to us. We attended Joe’s (the farmer’s nephew) wedding. We spent time with Lynne (the shepherdess) while in Oregon. I check in on the vintner after the fires in Napa—he and his family made it through okay.
But the real adventure is just beginning.
Over the course of the last year, I’ve been traveling on another adventure to scout the divine. This time I’ve gone on a culinary adventure (yum, yum).
My exploration led me cast fishnets in the Sea of Galilee, descend into salt mines 450 feet below ground, bake fresh matzo at Yale University, harvest olives on the Croatian coast, study artisanal meats in Texas, and taste figs at a world premier farm.
Taste and See: Discovering God Among Butchers, Bakers, and Fresh Food Makers will make you hungry to know God and satisfied by the fresh insights into Scripture.
Now whenever I mention the title, people always ask: Will there be recipes?
Oh, yes, friends, we are opening our kitchen to you along the way.
But the real deliciousness is in the fresh way you’ll encounter Jesus and the Bible.
This book was a labor of love—to love you the reader, to love God in obedient joy, and to whet all of our appetites for more of him.
Go ahead and pre-order your copy today. I know you’ll be happy you did.
P.S. We’re kicking off our fall sale next week if you’re looking for a fresh Bible study. ☺
