The Heavenly Gift: The Art of Liturgical Bread-Making is much more than a recipe guide for prosphoro and artoclasia. It brings to light the joy and unique privilege of preparing and offering liturgical bread for the celebration of the Immaculate Mysteries through a concise study of its history, meaning, purpose, and preparation. The reader will also find stories about saints and everyday people who have been touched by God and man in their participation in and preparation of the eucharistic offering. 

This book also includes helpful photographic aids of the entire process of preparation, as well as helpful tips about relevant tools and equipment to aid the reader in mastering process of the ancient method of using natural starter for the preparation of prosphoro.

This beautifully sewn hardcover book includes decorative endpapers, two ribbon markers, and a Pantone painted edge. The text of the Heavenly Gift has been offset printed in full color on 120gsm white paper, and on 157gsm art paper for the photographic aids.

Also available with 8oz of 100% pure USA produced domestic beeswax pellets for preparing your prosphoro pan -- enough to prepare over 100 non-stick pans. See below under related products or clink link.

    All you need!

    Published by Mike on May 7th 2024

    Perfect blend of practical advice and spiritual insight. Plenty of helpful (and beautiful!) illustrations throughout. Artfully bound, like everything from Newrome. Even better than expected. The only resource you'll ever need on the subject. What a treasure.

    Church prosphora baking

    Published by Lynnette Hoffman on Oct 2nd 2023

    Beautiful book with more information than preparing prosphora. My only regret is I make Russian (5 loaves/2 parts) style and Greek style (1 loaf) which not part of the book. NEWROME: To make smaller loaves, simply make enough subdivide the dough. For example, 800gr [5@ 160gr] or 1000gr [5 @ 200gr loaves] or 1600gr [5 @ 320gr loaves]. The instructions in the book explain how to easily increase quantities.

    Very informative

    Published by Fr. Deacon Evangelos on Sep 28th 2023

    I had no idea that traditional prosphora is prepared by using a starter and without yeast. Very detailed instructions are provided. If one has the time and patience, this book provides the step by step instructions. I'm in the process of making my starter and I'm looking forward to producing my first "test" loaf. Thanks very much for this very informative reference.
