Reviews - What do customers think about What Would Jesus Eat??

Cancer Help for you - Very Clear  Jan 1, 2007
I book this book on the advice of my doctor. This is a very good book and focuses on what Jesus ate during his lifetime knowing that in biblical times people did not die from dieases or cancer. If you go back to the basic of eating with no preservatives and always ask yourself, would Jesus eat this, if the answer is no, you know not to buy it. I believe the Mediterrean Diet comes from this book. Very Very good book for all those diagnosed with disease or cancer.
A great read if you're a Christian interested in health  Dec 28, 2006
This book gives advice for healthy eating based mostly on the premise that Jesus's diet is the ideal standard. Dr. Colbert intertwines discussions of the first century, kosher Mediterranean diet with current nutrition knowledge to show why such a diet was healthy. He discusses the benefits of foods like whole grains, beans, fruits and vegetables, fish, olive oil, yogurt, and red wine (in moderation), and the health hazards of processed foods that are common in the modern American diet. A lot of the information was not new to me, but some of it was. He provides practical advice at the end of the book for adopting this type of diet and sticking with it, along with a chapter on the benefits of exercise. All in all, I enjoyed the book and am glad that I own it. My one complaint is that he didn't include more recipes to get us started.

Dr. Colbert seems to take a stance on the dietary laws that is unique among the evangelical crowd, and that is that Jesus's intent was not to abolish the dietary laws (or any of His other laws), but to free us from sin's stranglehold so that we could follow them more fully. Since this book is focused on nutrition and not theology, Dr. Colbert doesn't spend a lot of time defending this position in the book; by the same token, you can still get a lot out of this book even if you disagree with him.

Since I believe that God designed and created us, and that He gave Israel the dietary laws based on that design, it makes sense to me that those laws were not abolished any more so than the laws of physics. If you are looking for a more thorough discussion of why the dietary laws still apply to Christians, I recommend reading Hope Egan's book, "Holy Cow! Does God Care About What We Eat?"

Amazing Kosher/Mediterranean combination  Jan 17, 2006
Ok, I was kind of fat. Not fat, like that those people whose behinds they show on the news when doing stories on obesity in America, but I was in the process of going from thick, to fat. "What Would Jesus Eat?" reversed that trend. What I like best about Dr. Colbert's book is that it provides information on how to achieve a real lifestyle change, not some sort of fad diet. Also, kudos to Dr. C for helping change my life while heaping praise on the Good Lord.
What separates Dr. C's ideas from those of other people is that in the case of diets like the South Beach diet, and the Atkins diet, no group in history has sustained civilizations based on them, the Mediterranean and Kosher diets however have sustained the civilizations of major peoples life the Romans, Greeks, and Hebrews, over long periods of time. The fact is also that cutting out processed foods is a wonderful idea being this artificial bleaching and processing of food is a modern phenomenom, so eating a whole grain minimally processed diet will provide a centuries-proven benefit.
I have lost ten pounds since being on the diet. I think most of it came from following the parts of the Bible that mention the consumption of deserts, but only during special events. Me being a slob who ate at least one candy-bar a day took that to heart, and started from there, and it has worked wonders. In fact the very few times I do eat desert now, it tastes much better being that my body is starting to be conditioned to see sweets as more of a special thing, and less of a normal boring activity. What a wonderful book. Praise be to God.
Jesus and Me  Jan 11, 2006
Despite what T. Smith (another reviewer) states, Jesus was under no vegetarian obligation. God has made multiple covenants with his followers, and in each covenant the previous one was replaced. Thus post-Noah followers could eat meat, and post-Jesus followers had no obligation to be kosher. Which brings me to my main point: why should one feel any significance in eating what Jesus ate? He was still obligated to follow the kosher rules of Deuteronomy, while modern day Christians are not. If the book is kosher, it need not be, and if it isn't, it can't possibly contain what Jesus ate. Jesus was kosher. Basically, this is a pretty stupid premise for a book. Eat what you want - God won't care.
Good But Incomplete.  Jan 9, 2006
If this book gets Christians to eat better, more power to Dr. Colbert, although I'm not totally sold on his premise.
Some observations:
--If I remember correctly, Colbert doesn't address the fact that in Genesis Adam and Eve are told to dine on plants and name the animals.(Yes, it's there fellow Christians, though I don't have a Bible in front of me to cite the verse and it wouldn't hurt for you to look it up yourself. Be prepared for an -aha- experience.)

--Thus, Colbert's book would have been better if he had addressed more explicitly that humans are supposed to eat much more plants than animals (if animals at all.)

--If Jesus ate meat, he certainly didn't eat much beef and no pork. Somewhere I read that in Jesus' day the price of a beef cow was similar to what it would cost to buy a new Mercedes today. That's why the older brother in the prodigal son parable got so out-of-sorts: killing the "fatted calf" for the prodigal son was a big monetary decision. Today a male calf is nothing more than a side item for the beef and milk industry. There's no use for male calves today other than to create a market for them by calling them "veal" chaining them to a tiny crate and killing them weeks after they are born.
--I like the fact that Colbert emphasized the kosher way of slaughter. Back then if you killed an animal for food, you probably raised it, probably named it even. Today, slaughter is all done in a much more barbaric and inhumane fashion. If you have to do the killing yourself I *guarantee* people would eat a lot less meat.

--I have taken to heart Colbert's warning against shellfish. I have been a vegetarian for two years now, although I have occasionally eaten fish. I have not eaten shellfish for two years, partly because of what Colbert says about them in this book. And I love scallops, oysters and shrimp.

--I'm trying now to become vegan this year. Colbert, in my opinion, had the opportunity to emphasize more thoroughly the reasons why we are to eat plants predominantly. Although Jesus likely ate his share of fish (he was around fisherman constantly, after all) all Christians would do well to consider eating more like Jesus likely did.

Note: I give this book a "strong" 3, meaning at least a 3 and a half stars. Indeed, Colbert is to be commended just for trying to write a book such as this because what we eat *is* related to our spirituality--no ifs, ands or buts about that.
