When I sat down to page through these two books Share the Bounty: Finding God's Grace through the Spirit of Hospitality and Come to the Table: Food, Fellowship, and a Celebration of God's Bounty, something happened to me that has never happened before with a cookbook.
Update! Congratulations to Vicky B. who said: "If I should win one of these beautiful books, as much as I would like to keep it for myself, I know a most wonderful, special Christian woman whom I would gift this to. Thank you for giving everyone this very generous opportunity."

It's not surprising since both books are filled with beautiful, scenic outdoor photography and indoor and outdoor church and home architecture. You'll also find plenty of photographs depicting lovely garden settings, beautiful home decor, floral arrangements, elegant table settings, tea time and cozy kitchen shots.

Oh yes, and there are the recipes!

|Fresh Pear Salad - Come to the Table|
|New Potato and Sweet Onion Gratin - Come to the Table|
|Green Apple Cole Slaw - Come to the Table|
Share the Bounty has most of the same characteristics as found in Come to the Table. Here you'll also find photographs of beautiful table settings and outdoor scenery, prayers and scriptural and inspirational quotes. This volume, however, is more about celebrating the spirit of hospitality and entertaining and the sharing of life's most important occasions together, intended to inspire you to open your home and share God's grace with others.

The recipes have beautiful full color photographs, and every turn of the page is like a spiritual refresher and inspirational kitchen devotional. They are the kinds of books you want to display, propped open on an elegant book rack on your kitchen counter, or left on the coffee table in your family room where friends visit. They both make a lovely conversation piece and will surely become a favorite item for gift-giving, because when your friends see these books, they will pick them up, relish in the contents, and want a copy for themselves.
UPDATE: GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED. THANKS FOR ENTERING!
☛ Are you on Facebook? If you haven't already, come and join the party! We have a lot of fun & there's always room for one more at the table.
