Katie Dodillet

Worship Leader magazine has named From Tablet to Table as one of the five best books of 2015. Winners were announced in the November/December issue. 

Written by Leonard Sweet, From Tablet to Table (NavPress, 2015) offers a vision for Christian faith and witness that is centered at a common table, “where community is found and identity is formed.” This brief book surveys the Scriptures to demonstrate the role of a shared meal as foundational and formational to biblical faith. “Bring back the table,” Sweet recommends, in order to see improved health and self-awareness among youth, strengthened families, more mature churches, and a more empathic and healthy community. 

Described by Worship Leader as “paradigm-shifting and thought-provoking,” From Tablet to Table has been lauded by many readers as Leonard Sweet’s “best book ever.” NavPress publisher Don Pape responded to the selection of From Tablet to Table with “gratitude and honor. Len Sweet is one of the most influential thinkers and culture leaders in North American Christianity; it’s a pleasure to bring his insights and creative energy to the page in this book.”

Worship Leader is a bimonthly print and digital publication that focuses on Christian-based contemporary worship music, business, education, technology and news. 

NavPress is the book publishing arm of The Navigators, publishing in alliance with Tyndale House. For more information on From Tablet to Table or NavPress, visit or contact Katie Dodillet at
