Finally! A book about every aspect of food- from a plant in the soil to digestion and our attitudes along the way- that is from a thorough Biblical perspective! It was a treat to read about the experience of real food and family meals without having to guard myself against evolutionary beliefs (like when reading Barbara Kingsolver) or the New Age perspective (like when reading Whole Living).
The book is also liberally sprinkled with resources and research to tantalize you into further reading on the subject of food.
I also appreciated the chapter on eating disorders which is too often negelected when reading about food.
And the chapter on nutrition made me change my thinking on vitamins and my preoccupation with "healthy" food. The book's deconstruction of popular eating plans and diets (including Weight Watchers) challenged me to enjoy whole food as God designed it.
