Take This Bread: A Radical Conversion by Sara Miles
What would cause someone who is an atheist, a lesbian, and a left-wing journalist with a child born out of wedlock to suddenly embrace Christianity? In the case of Sara Miles, it was the simple act of communion.
Miles shares her story in a witty and thoughtful manner, telling how her conversion drove her to provide materially for those who were hungry, to ‘feed God’s sheep’ as it were. Her story is a testament to how God can work within anyone, even those viewed by much of the church as flawed.
Non-Christians might find this a bit heavy-handed, but I think it would be an enjoyable book whether one is a believer or not. At the very least, the story of how she set up an extremely successful food pantry should be inspirational to all who wish to work towards alleviating suffering.
