Want some new perspective on God’s design for eating? Get this book, read it and then prayerfully pursue what God’s Spirit has for you.” — Brad Bloom, Publisher Faith & Fitness Magazine, faithandfitness.net
“Your publication is a fine, stimulating, and magnificent work on a topic many Christians refuse to think about.

I strongly recommend this superb book for all who want to advance in their daily walk with the Lord.” — Jiri Moskala, Th.D. Ph.D., Professor of Old Testament Exegesis and Theology at Andrews University

“This simple-to-understand book uses basic hermeneutic principles to properly interpret what the Bible says about eating meat...Egan is clear that our diets are not a salvation issue, while at the same time encouraging obedience to God’s Word. I highly recommend this much-needed book.” — Robin Sampson, Author of A Family Guide to the Biblical Holidays and The Heart of Wisdom Teaching Approach: A Guide to Biblical Education

“This book should come with a warning. If you read this book you may be leaving pork ribs and lobster off your personal menu. It is that thought-provoking and biblically convincing.” — Jackson Crum, Lead Pastor, Park Community Church
“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.

“As a pastor in a mainline protestant congregation who keeps a biblically ordained diet, I often feel like a stranger in a strange land. Many in the Church do not fully understand the biblical/kosher lifestyle, and so I often find myself teaching them. This book has been a vital resource to me by helping me explain what the Bible says about our dietary choices and the fact that God really does care about what we eat.” — Bill Beyer, Pastor, Trinity English Lutheran Church

“Holy Cow! presents a clear picture of what the disciples said about food in the New Testament and how that pertains to the Torah’s dietary instructions. This question seems to be arising more and more in Christendom today. For anyone who wants balanced, well-researched information on this subject, do not hesitate to pick up a copy of this book!” — Beth Holland, Author, Speaker, and Bible Teacher
“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.” — Joanne Brokaw, Freelance writer and columnist
