Hunger: it drives our bodies, shapes our day, and affects our choices.
We are all too familiar with our physical hunger and the guilt it often inspires. But God designed us to hunger—our hunger is good! It shows we are meant to depend on something outside ourselves for satisfaction. But what about the hunger we feel in our souls? While also from God, our spiritual hunger is corrupted—leaving us binging on “junk food” like our idols and cravings. Where do we find true satisfaction for our hungry souls? It comes when our souls feast on the Word of God—and on Jesus himself. Rondi shows us how to prepare a Bible study like a recipe for a spiritual banquet that will truly fill us.
Learn how to consume the Bible instead of just reading it—and then how to share this meal with the hungry around you.

“Some meals require an appetite, and others create one. This book is of the latter type. As the Prayer Book puts it, "Let us learn, mark and inwardly digest the Word of God." And I think you’ll find, as I have, that Rondi Lauterbach is a masterful chef.” — Michael Horton, J. Gresham Machen Professor of Systematic Theology and Apologetics, Westminster Seminary California
“Its blend of fresh ingredients—personal story, biblical theology, keen insight, and practical application—makes it highly recommended.” — Nancy Guthrie, author of the Bible study series Seeing Jesus in the Old Testament
“Frazzled exhaustion [for serious Bible study] is symptomatic of spiritual malnutrition. Hungry will whet your appetite to delve deeply into the Scriptures.” — Dennis E. Johnson, author, Walking with Jesus through His Word
