Chris Seay presents an interesting and insightful take on fasting in his newest book, A Place at the Table. I started this book about 1/3 of the way through the Lenten Season after visiting friends at Chris' church in downtown Houston, Ecclesia. I heard it mentioned many times, but reading it was almost out of the question because I already had four books open. Seay takes us through the wilderness that the Israelites traveled through for 40 years during this 40 days of awareness. The Exodus passage is a popular one to use for suffering comparisons, etc. I will say that because I have been around the block more times than I can keep count of, the Exodus passage feels a bit overused to me.
Author Chris Seay is giving you a challenge: eat and drink like the poor for 40 days and donate the money you save on groceries to a charity or project that serves the poor in concrete ways. But Chris doesn't expect you to go it alone. A Place at the Table includes a short chapter for each of those 40 days with Scripture, reflections, prayers, and encouragement. You'll even get tips for engaging your whole family in the process

Author and pastor Chris Seay believes that consumerism is an obstacle to Christian compassion for others, especially those who live in poverty. Seay’s antidote is to take readers on a forty-day spiritual journey of eating in solidarity with the poor.
The timing of the release of Chris Seay's A PLACE AT THE TABLE could hardly be more appropriate. As the subtitle implies, the book calls on Christians to devote 40 days to identifying with the poor by following a diet similar to that of people who live in the poorest areas of the world. With the 40 days of Lent beginning this year on February 22nd, readers have an opportunity to become acquainted with this alternative method of fasting and still have time to adjust their hearts, their minds, and their grocery lists before Lent begins. A PLACE AT THE TABLE is well worth reading, and.
