Item Description...
What did the early church think about diet and the Christians witness? As Christians, how and what should we eat? How can we be faithful stewards of animals? Stephen Webb addresses these and other questions in Good Eating. Webb thoughtfully critiques the animals rights movement while advocating a biblical view of the treatment and stewardship of animals. He presents an interesting and biblically sound approach to diet, touching on topics such as animals sacrifices, the Lord's Supper, pacifism, and the place for animals in heaven. This book will be of interest to animal lovers, pastors, vegetarians, those who struggle with weight loss and dieting, and anyone interested in Christian witness and discipleship.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Life, the Dinner Plate and Everything  May 29, 2007
Members of all religious backgrounds will enjoy this humorous in-depth study of the theology of food. Looking from the Christian perspective, Webb studies a number of subjects ranging from the modern "meat and potatoes" meal to Christian justification for vegetarianism, from whether or not pets go to Heaven to Biblical dietary restrictions in the Old Testament. While it is a bit academic for bedtime reading, it's certainly worth the read for anyone seriously interested in the Christian theology behind a human activity that unites us all - eating.
Wow, great stuff man  Oct 2, 2004
This is a really great book, fun to read, and inspiring as well. There is more information here about the early church and biblical view of animals than in any other book I know of. This is a great read. The chapter on whether there will be animals in heaven is a classic. Definitely a must read.
Rather academic  Jun 15, 2002
Although well written, this book was a bit too academic for me. It read like a text book/essay.
Read this--before you take another bite!  May 13, 2002
Stephen Webb�s Good Eating is an immensely important contribution to the discussion of eating and ethics, love of God and care for the world. In his very readable, engaging, and thoroughly enjoyable book, Webb takes up the difficult task of reclaiming the discourse and practice of vegetarianism from secular or non-Christian movements such animal rights, health consciousness, New Age or Eastern religions, in order to frame them in an authentic and Biblically-based Christian context. After discussing his own conversion to meatlessness as an integral part of his faith, Webb, a prominent theologian and professor, delves deeply into Biblical narratives and Christian history to examine teachings and practices of consumption. From the creation of animals as helpers in Eden to the dietary laws of Judaism, the Last Supper and the Eucharist to the fasting of the early Church Fathers, the abstention of heretics to the loss of the Biblical ideal of meatlessness, Webb problematizes conventional readings which assume a rationale for the eating flesh as an acceptable Christian practice. In their stead, he proposes a serious, provocative, and convincing theology of a truly compassionate and nonviolent stewardship of all of God�s creatures.
Yet even more compelling than his readings which demonstrate vegetarianism as intrinsic to the Christian tradition is his argument that not eating meat is a practice wholly consistent with living a Christian life and �one concrete way for Christians to experience and practice God�s grace� (41). In going beyond selfish, personal, or even health reasons for avoiding meat, Christian vegetarianism as �a way, gradually and humbly, of looking forward to God�s restoration of creation, the fulfillment of God�s promise to complete history by returning the whole world to God�s original intentions. This diet of hope can be one way of witnessing to the good news ofJesus Christ.� (13).
Unlike many books intended for Christian audiences, Webb�s does not preach to the choir. His critique of secular or non-Christian vegetarianism is matched by his critique of the complaceny of many contemporary Christians with regard to the suffering of animals and their willingness to conform to the status quo and biddings of the corporate world. His last chapter and appendices, however, provide a range of helpful theological and practical alternatives for consideration, and begin the work of restoring harmony between humans and the rest of creation.
Good Eating should be required reading not only for sincere Christians--but for everyone concerned with the welfare of animals, and a reflective and compassionate way of being in the world. Highest recommendation.
