Eat Like Jesus Book Review

Monday, January 13, 2014


“Eat Like Jesus” offers a simple, scientific, and comprehensive Bible-based dining theology, examining and explaining what the Bible teaches about food and eating.Drawing heavily from the Bible texts, “Eat Like Jesus” puts food-related topics such as veganism, kosher diets, cleansing rituals, and animal physiology (including diet, hygiene, diseases, etc.) into proper perspective, harmonizing New Testament accounts of Jesus, Peter, and Paul with Old Testament teachings of Moses.“Eat Like Jesus” uniquely reveals why the first law in the Garden of Eden was dietary, why Noah took extra pairs of certain animal species into the Ark, what kind of animals did Peter saw in his vision, and what Jesus really meant as he “called all foods clean”.

The Author’s Writing:

I was often offended by his strongly opinionated comments. I felt he didn’t offer grace toward his readers as his writing seemed harsh and condemning. He bombarded his readers with his dislike for dispensational theology; there was also a bit of mockery toward vegetarians. (Some vegetarians find their diet very satisfying actually!)

The Book’s Subject:

I do not hold to the author’s view of the pre-fall diet. I believe that during the time prior to the fall, all of creation was in a perfect state and were vegetarians. I am in agreement with Answers In Genesis on the answers to the questions that concern the first and most attacked book of the bible, the book of Genesis. Please take a look at their site for some explanations on the pre-fall diet.Two articles from AIG: What Would Jesus Eat? and Creation’s Original Diet and the Changes at the Fall.Summed up, it amounts to the fact that DEATH would not have existed before SIN entered the creation. 

In Conclusion:

As you could have guessed, I don’t recommend this book. In concluding this review, I’d like to add that God’s love is the fulfillment of the law In Jesus. Romans 10:4 Christ is the culmination of the law so that there may be righteousness for everyone who believes.
