For a long time I've had something of a general interest in nutrition and, more recently, have been interested in knowing what the Bible has to say about nutrition and certain foods. I'd been recently exposed to some who feel that God intended for folks to eat the way they did in the Garden of Eden (all raw fruits and vegetables). I think that's commendable when folks are led that way, but what I really want in my life is balance. This author really presents that balance in this book. She takes many categories of food (dairy, meat, oil, fruits, veggies and grains) and examines what the Bible has to say on each. She gives various scriptural references (I had my Bible right beside me, checking this stuff out for myself) on the foods mentioned and, best of all, she gives practical and spiritual applications that cause us to examine how and what we are eating. Moreover, on a spiritual level, she asks us to examine what it is we are hungry for, or what it is we are thirsting for. What are our spiritual diets like? Are we eating what cannot satisfy and drinking what cannot truly quench?
The author gives insights and suggestions I can live with, and that's really important to me. Also, I could eat raw fruits and vegetables all day long, but if that isn't the desire of my family, I need to come up with a balanced plan that will work for all of us. This book gives helpful references and some good, healthy recipes that even my husband could go for (wishful thinking?)...anyway, I'd highly recommend this book to anyone who is ready to embrace a healthier lifestyle through good nutrition. Forget about trying to lose weight and getting skinny for the summer --- this is not that kind of book. Why not do something different? Instead of starting from the outside in, why not start from the inside out?

This book is easy to read as well as interesting and informative. It compares the Biblical laws about foods with what our society is telling us today. You may be surprised to learn some facts about your current diet and what it is doing to your body. God has given us an abundance of good foods, but we in America tend to reject them in favor of junk foods and processed foods with all the nutrients taken out. Without being too pushy, it makes you want to eat healthier. It contains a number of recipes and other helpful resources. Also included are some spiritual principles related to food.

This book is alright if you're just beginning to look into eating healthier. I did enjoy the Scriptural insight. However, you can tell this is a nice lady who has done a lot of reading and tried to capsulize everything she's learned into one tiny little book. She says as much herself.

With good intentions she makes many statements without much backing - relying on common knowledge from what the media pumps out - and lots of other statements quoted directly from doctors, books, etc. Several foundational statements she makes I rejected, because in my research and reading I found information that shows the opposite. I just did my best to eat all the good hay and spit out the few sticks.

I thought the book would focus mainly on Scripture, and in many ways it did. However, many of the foundational principles were still taken from doctors or research or other books, without biblical basis. It just depends what you are looking for. If you are just starting out on the healthy eating journey, this is a great jumping off point. The author includes a lot of wonderful self-examining questions and suggestions for how to start from where you are today.

There were also several subjects left out that I wish had been covered, i.e. sprouting, soaking, fermentation, etc.

Joyce Rogers does a great job of explaining some basic principles of healthy foods. I really enjoyed the biblical examples she used in it also. This book was the starting point of some major changes in my diet. It wasn't to overwhelming, and she also has ideas for small steps towards the dietary changes, instead of shocking your family with lots of sudden ones. I love Joyce Rogers too...she is such a wonderful sweet woman!

As a previous reviewer stated, this is a great book for beginners. If you have already done research on Biblical Based nutrition, this book will just reiterate items you have already learned. It was an easy read, but it gave lots of valuable information, and more importantly, it gave great references to expound on all topics. One of the books she references a few times is Rex Russell's "What the Bible Says About Healthy Living". I HIGHLY recommend this book to anyone interested in Biblical Nutrition. There are several subjects addressed in both Rex Russell's book and Mrs. Rogers book that I want to explore further, and Joyce listed many of those books which I will look into.

And, there is a section in the back that has some good recipes. So, all in all, a great book to use as a spring board into the wonderful world of Nutrition--not as much detail as some would like, but the resources to find the wanted detail.
