Bam! A book gets my attention whenever a writer shows how American culture influences the church more than the church influences culture. J. Nicole Morgan hits this mark in Fat and Faithful: Learning to Love Our Bodies, Our Neighbors, and Ourselves.
Morgan, in her thirties, declares she finally accepts her lifelong fat body as Christ accepts her–totally, all XXXX size of her. She wants the Body of Christ to accept her and others like her at the Table of Grace without body judgment and shaming.
