About the Author

Mary Ruth Swope received a Bachelor of Science degree from Winthrop College, Rock Hill, South Carolina. She has a Master of Science degree in Foods and Nutrition from the Woman's College of the University of North Carolina, Greensboro. She also has a doctorate from Teacher's College, Columbia University, New York City.

After seven years of high school teaching in Vocational Home Economics programs, she served as a nutritionist with the Ohio Health Department. Dr. Swope then joined the Foods and Nutrition faculty at Purdue University and later served as Head of Foods and Nutrition at the University of Nevada.

As a college administrator, she served as Head of Home Economics at Queens College, Charlotte, North Carolina. For eighteen years, prior to her retirement in December 1980, Dr. Swope was Dean of the School of Home Economics, Eastern Illinois University, Charleston, Illinois.

Dr. Swope and her husband, Don, took early retirement to begin a new ministry, "Nutrition with a Mission." Through lectures and seminars, they encourage audiences to deny themselves unneeded calories, to save the money the calories would have cost, and to give it to Great Commission programs and projects.

Dr. Swope is a popular lecturer who has been a seminar speaker at PTL in Charlotte, North Carolina, and Christian Retreat in Bradendon, Florida. She has also made many TV appearances, including The 700 Club on the Christian Broadcasting Network. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Format: Paperback
I originally bought this book because the title was about fasting and I know I need my willpower increased. I had no idea that it would be such a good reference book! As I read over into the middle of the book I was Thrilled to find that she actually gave detailed information as to how to do different fasts in order to reach certain goals in dealing with health problems. I became convinced that this book is a must read for everyone non-Christians as well as Christians because it promotes good health by natural means! Dr. Swope shares God's wisdom in how to deal and/or heal many diseases by fasting. This is definitely not a book on starvation. She uses logical and reasonable means of detoxing our bodies without depleting our nutrients. This book dispells the idea that fasting is unhealthy and for fanatics. Dr. Swope's information is well supported by biblical scriptures and by medical doctors. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is because she recommends a supplement called BarleyGreen. Since I have not tried this product, I won't endorse that part of the book. Overall I highly recommend this book to everyone. It incited me to begin fasting and educated me as to how to do it safely. Dr. Swope, Thanks so much for your book on fasting. It is a blessed resource!
