Inklings

I'm addicted to books. According to Umberto Eco I am building an anti-library, meaning I own way more books than I have read. I love good fiction, literature, theology, Biblical studies, philosophy, children's books, and lots more.

What Would Jesus Eat?: The Ultimate Program for Eating Well, Feeling Great, and Living Longer - Don Colbert Cheesy cliche title? Who cares. I found this to be a interesting look at food history, nutrition, and health. I have been intrigued by the Mediterrean diet since I discovered that Greeks, Italians, and the like have much lower rates of cancer and heart disease. Colbert modifies this diet to exclude the prohibited foods from Deuteronomy and Leviticus (giving his own medical reasons why). If we are what we eat, maybe Christians should take more care of what they put into their bodies instead of letting popular culture dictate what we consume.
