Manna is the third album released by Bread in 1971. The title, like that of the preceding album On the Waters, is a Biblical pun on the name Bread, this time to the manna from Heaven fed to the Israelites. Although this was not literally Bread (the word Manna simply means "What is it?") it has often been metaphorically described as bread from Heaven.
