This popular classic introduced a hungry world to Rupp's unique brand of spiritual nourishment: prose, poetry, and prayer to help us reflect upon and rejoice in the sacred everyday world that is both around and within us. This Twentieth Anniversary Edition includes a new foreword, revealing retrospective insights about the budding of Rupp's own spirituality and illustrating the ongoing relevance of Fresh Bread in today's chaotic and fragile world.
Over 100,000 copies of Fresh Bread are found throughout the world, along with Rupp's many other popular books and CDs, such Out of the Ordinary, Praying Our Goodbyes, Inviting God In, May I Have this Dance?, and The Cup of Our Life.
Joyce Rupp is well-known for her work as a writer, spiritual midwife, international retreat leader, and conference speaker. She is the author of numerous bestselling books, including Praying Our Goodbyes, Open the Door, and Fragments of Your Ancient Name. Rupp is a member of the Servite (Servants of Mary) community and the codirector of the Institute of Compassionate Presence. She resides in Des Moines, Iowa.
Before it became hip to experience spirituality in everyday life, Joyce Rupp was helping us discover the sacred in nature, in relationships, and in grieving loss. In Fresh Bread, she once again nourishes us with prayer and poetry, ritual and reflection. Solidly grounded in Scripture, it is a yeasty resource for all hungry for a deeper prayer life.
