Eating and Believing: Interdisciplinary Perspectives on Vegetarianism and Theology (T&T Clark Theology)
[Hardcover] David Grumett (Author), Rachel Muers (Author) 12/08

This is a collaborative volume on the concept of modern vegetarianism and the relationships between people's beliefs and food practices. What are the links between people's beliefs and the foods they choose to eat?

In the modern Western world, dietary choices are a topic of ethical and political debate, but how can centuries of Christian thought and practice also inform them? And how do reasons for abstaining from particular foods in the modern world compare with earlier ones?

This book will shed new light on modern vegetarianism and related forms of dietary choice by situating them in the context of historic Christian practice. It will show how the theological significance of embodied practice may be retrieved and reconceived in the present day.

Food and diet is a neglected area of Christian theology, and Christianity is conspicuous among the modern world's religions in having few dietary rules or customs. Yet historically, food and the practices surrounding it have significantly shaped Christian lives and identities.

This collection, prepared collaboratively, includes contributions on the relationship between Christian beliefs and food practices in specific historical contexts. It considers the relationship between eating and believing from non-Christian perspectives that have in turn shaped Christian attitudes and practices. It also examines ethical arguments about vegetarianism and their significance for emerging Christian theologies of food.

(Paperback) by Keith Akers (Author) 11/00

Is God a Vegetarian?: Christianity, Vegetarianism, and Animal Rights
(Paperback) by Richard A. Young (Author) 9/98
Richard Young has combined a bold thesis-that a morally responsible Christianity demands serious consideration of vegetarianism as a way of honoring creation in all its richness-with a nuanced reading of the Bible and the tradition that respects the complexity of the issues involved. And he has managed to do this in a lively and attractive prose. Plus he offeres recipes! He may not change your way of eating, but he will certainly change your way of thinking about what you are eating.

(Paperback) by Robert H. Eisenman (Author) 3/98

Eisenman contends that Dead Sea Scrolls are actually the work of first-century Christians. He goes so far as to link St. James, the brother of Jesus, with the "Teacher of Righteousness," and St. Paul with the "Man of the Lie" mentioned in the texts. Complete history of early Christianity and the Temple Judaism in which the former resists the dominant Greco-Roman culture and the latter adapts to it. Conclusion that James, rather than Peter, was heir to Jesus teachings.

Vegetarian Sourcebook: The Nutrition, Ecology and Ethics of a Natural Foods Diet
(Paperback) by Keith Akers (Author) 6/93
Vegetarianism has gone mainstream in the last decade and is no longer seen just as a leftover lifestyle of 1960s hippies. From a number of perspectives-nutritional, religious, ethical-this book demonstrates how opting for a meat-free diet based on fruits, grains and vegetables is healthier for you and for the planet. It offers statistics that confirm not only environmental fears about meat consumption causing rain forest and topsoil destruction in spite of the meat industry's myths, but also that vegetarian women have a lower incidence of breast cancer as well as other cancers. Well-researched information on vegetarian nutrition, vegetarian ethics and lists of vegetarian resources make it an indispensable wellness guidebook for non-meat eaters and those looking to make the switch.
