The Word on Health: A Biblical and Medical Overview of How to Care for Your Body

Michael Jacobson, Author Moody Publishers $14.99 (250p) ISBN 978-0-8024-6496-5
Dr. Jacobson espouses many contemporary health recommendations--drink plenty of pure water, eat fresh fruits and vegetables and cut down on red meat, utilize whole grains, avoid stress and so on--but always with a view to the Bible's counsel (or, in a pinch, to what was done ""in Bible times""). In his efforts to cement the Bible's role as the definitive word on health, he must occasionally stretch its interpretation of issues on which it is relatively silent, such as the benefits of exercise. Jacobson's biblically literalist view of what ""the Word"" has to say about nutrition will appeal primarily to an audience of fellow conservative Christians. (Mar.)
