"This is the type of book that will make any student of the Bible happy.  The author clearly and carefully leads readers through a penetrating and fascinating study of God's Word.  Yet her style of writing is conversational, never confrontational.  It's a perfect mix of enthusiasm and exhortation!"

Joyce Handzo

"What's important about this book is that Egan doesn't force a right-or-wrong debate about eating meat or following kosher rules.  Instead, she simply represents both biblical and scientific thoughts about why God gave those specific dietary rules in Leviticus and asks us to consider how they apply to our lives today."
