Littleton, CO (PRWEB) April 11, 2005 Â A new look at the Good Book may cause some Christians to rethink their favorite pizza toppings. Addressing both food and faithÂthe two hottest topics on the New York Times best-seller listÂHope EganÂs newly released ÂHoly Cow! Does Care about What We Eat?Â (First Fruits of Zion, April, 2005) will also cause the National Pork BoardÂwho just launched their ÂDonÂt be blahÂÂ marketing campaignÂto shudder.
In this retelling of her personal journey through what the Bible says about eating meat, Egan discovers that God did design meat to be eatenÂbut only those called ÂcleanÂ in the Old Testament. Health books like ÂThe MakerÂs DietÂ and ÂWhat Would Jesus Eat?Â affirm that God did not design pork to be eaten, and that eating swineÂs flesh leads to arthritis, acne and other health problems. But these books avoid the unspoken question: if this popular food is not supposed to be eaten, then why does the Church overlook the guidelines that forbid eating it? http://www.HolyCowNews.com
With help from Bible teacher D. Thomas Lancaster, Egan reconciles the Old Testament meat passages with the New Testament, and bravely suggests that Christian obedience might include more parts of the Bible than previously thought. In the process, she shows how science supports the biblical food laws, questions the wisdom of both meat-heavy Atkins diets and no-meat vegetarian diets, and shows how eating meat GodÂs way helps prevent Mad Cow disease.
Jordan Rubin, author of the best-selling ÂThe MakerÂs DietÂ says that ÂHoly Cow! is a must-read book for Jews, Christians and anyone else who eatsÂ Â
Best-selling author Hope Egan is an associate editor for First Fruits of ZionÂs Messiah Magazine. D. Thomas Lancaster is the Educational Director for First Fruits of Zion and author of ÂMystery of the Gospel.Â
