Item description for The Bible's Seven Secrets to Healthy Eating by Joyce Rogers...
We read Genesis 1 and know that God's creation is a masterpiece, but do we realize how good His creation is? Do we realize that the vitamins, minerals, and fibers in the foods He created so intimately coincide with the needs of our bodies that to live without them is impossible? Vegetables, grains, fruits, honey, milk, meats, oils, water--all are essential for a healthy existence.
To encourage proper stewardship of God's gifts of health and life, Joyce Rogers introduces you to the world of natural foods, a world where nutrition not only provides the basic elements for life, but also becomes the basis for many of the images within the Christian life. The Bread of Life, the Living Water, the Blood of Christ--all take on even greater significance as Rogers explains the nutritional value of natural foods and their effect upon our bodies.
With information like this, Rogers impresses you with the need for healthy consumption. With spiritual applications, she challenges you to evaluate your own eating habits. And with tips and recipes, she inspires you to experiment and form new culinary customs and traditions. When you appreciate the intricate relationship between food and life, then you will see in a new way all that God has made and know that it is good.

Foods from the Bible Apr 4, 2008
Our ladies church group was studying two books of the Bible and one the book of Ruth dealt with grains so we were studying the types of food available during the time of this story. This book was helpful and we could create lots of foods to make our study interesting.
We prepared our study for the congregation and then had a social hour serving several tables full of foods prepared like they had in Bible times.

As a previous reviewer stated, this is a great book for beginners. If you have already done research on Biblical Based nutrition, this book will just reiterate items you have already learned. It was an easy read, but it gave lots of valuable information, and more importantly, it gave great references to expound on all topics. One of the books she references a few times is Rex Russell's "What the Bible Says About Healthy Living". I HIGHLY recommend this book to anyone interested in Biblical Nutrition. There are several subjects addressed in both Rex Russell's book and Mrs. Rogers book that I want to explore further, and Joyce listed many of those books which I will look into.
And, there is a section in the back that has some good recipes. So, all in all, a great book to use as a spring board into the wonderful world of Nutrition--not as much detail as some would like, but the resources to find the wanted detail.
Good for Beginners Jun 8, 2007
This book is alright if you're just beginning to look into eating healthier. I did enjoy the Scriptural insight. However, you can tell this is a nice lady who has done a lot of reading and tried to capsulize everything she's learned into one tiny little book. She says as much herself.
With good intentions she makes many statements without much backing - relying on common knowledge from what the media pumps out - and lots of other statements quoted directly from doctors, books, etc. Several foundational statements she makes I rejected, because in my research and reading I found information that shows the opposite. I just did my best to eat all the good hay and spit out the few sticks.
I thought the book would focus mainly on Scripture, and in many ways it did. However, many of the foundational principles were still taken from doctors or research or other books, without biblical basis. It just depends what you are looking for. If you are just starting out on the healthy eating journey, this is a great jumping off point. The author includes a lot of wonderful self-examining questions and suggestions for how to start from where you are today.
There were also several subjects left out that I wish had been covered, i.e. sprouting, soaking, fermentation, etc.
Little book with lots of information! Jan 7, 2005
Joyce Rogers does a great job of explaining some basic principles of healthy foods. I really enjoyed the biblical examples she used in it also. This book was the starting point of some major changes in my diet. It wasn't to overwhelming, and she also has ideas for small steps towards the dietary changes, instead of shocking your family with lots of sudden ones. I love Joyce Rogers too...she is such a wonderful sweet woman!
Hold it RIGHT there!...drop that bag of chips... Apr 18, 2002
For a long time I've had something of a general interest in nutrition and, more recently, have been interested in knowing what the Bible has to say about nutrition and certain foods. I'd been recently exposed to some who feel that God intended for folks to eat the way they did in the Garden of Eden (all raw fruits and vegetables). I think that's commendable when folks are led that way, but what I really want in my life is balance. This author really presents that balance in this book. She takes many categories of food (dairy, meat, oil, fruits, veggies and grains) and examines what the Bible has to say on each. She gives various scriptural references (I had my Bible right beside me, checking this stuff out for myself) on the foods mentioned and, best of all, she gives practical and spiritual applications that cause us to examine how and what we are eating. Moreover, on a spiritual level, she asks us to examine what it is we are hungry for, or what it is we are thirsting for. What are our spiritual diets like? Are we eating what cannot satisfy and drinking what cannot truly quench? The author gives insights and suggestions I can live with, and that's really important to me. Also, I could eat raw fruits and vegetables all day long, but if that isn't the desire of my family, I need to come up with a balanced plan that will work for all of us. This book gives helpful references and some good, healthy recipes that even my husband could go for (wishful thinking?)...anyway, I'd highly recommend this book to anyone who is ready to embrace a healthier lifestyle through good nutrition. Forget about trying to lose weight and getting skinny for the summer --- this is not that kind of book. Why not do something different? Instead of starting from the outside in, why not start from the inside out?
