Mealtime just got yummier

REVIEW: Whit’s End Mealtime Devotions By John Avery Whittaker

For families looking to not only dig into tasty food morsels at dinner time, but to also feed the spiritual stomach, Whit’s End Mealtime Devotions provides the needed nutritional supplement.

This fun, helpful book is practical and makes family meal time devotions easy and manageable as it is broken down into a five course meal consisting of: mealtime prayer, appetizer, main course, table talk, and vitamins and minerals.

I appreciate the relatable starter appetizer questions that flow into the main course and table talk time which ask deeper theological questions (which are still on a family-friendly level for people with small children) and then onto the vitamins and minerals of Scripture.  Thus, this devotion is not just cake and ice cream with simple questions, but provides some good, hearty meat so family members can really dig into Scripture and ponder theological questions.

As a pastor, I would recommend this devotional book to all families looking to reinstitute the much needed family meal time back into our culture.  This devotional book makes mealtime that much yummier!
