Summary: The definitive health plan — taken straight from God’s Word. Dr. Rex Russell presents biblical principles with practical, workable steps to help you improve your physical and spiritual health.

I LOVED this book.

The author introduces three principles to follow based on the Bible and what God teaches us about healthy living.

  1. 1. Eat Only Substances Created for Food

2. Eat Foods as They Were Created

3. Don’t Let Any Food or Drink Become Your God

Rex shows us that if you follow these three principles you will eat healthier, be healthier and honour God at the same time.

The book starts off with a intro section that covers Eating Right in a World Gone Wrong and Health With Obedience.  Then he goes over the three principles with a chapter for each one.

Finally, Part 3 has separate chapters to go more in-depth on different kinds of food:

  • Going with the Grain (and Nuts too)
  • The Fat of the Land
  • The Meat to Eat
  • How Sweet It Is
  • Mom Was Right: Eat Your Fruits and Veggies
  • The Spice(s) of Life
  • Beverages: Elixirs of Life – or Death

The Best Source of Bible-Based Healthy Living

I’ve read lots of books about healthy living but they all say different things and I don’t know which one to listen too. I’ve also read articles on Christian healthy living but they just say follow the Bible or take care of your body because it’s a temple which is very vague.

This is the first book to really dig into the scripture and explain what it means in a plain way. But the author doesn’t just give you the basics, he answers common questions and shows you what the scripture says about it.

I highly recommend this book if you are struggling with how to live healthily the way God wants you to.
