NEW SECOND EDITION
Hope shares the challenges she had to face when she tried to share her new found Bible truth with her husband. This book is a simple-to-understand overview in plain words the differences between clean and unclean meats. The author presents a balanced explanation of eating biblically and explains where some of the non-biblical traditions (such as separating milk and meat) come from.
Egan addresses the verses that most Christians use to rationalize that all foods are clean (Mark 7 and Acts 10). She uses basic hermeneutic principles to properly interpret the text. Egan is very clear that our diets are not a salvation issue while also encouraging obedience to God’s Word. Hope helps you see how science and Scripture brilliantly intertwine. Promoting neither legalism nor vegetarianism, Holy Cow! gently challenges you to take a fresh look at how you live out your faith!
