I am familiar with this book and read it at the invitation of my Father who had cancer and eventually went on to be an elite Health Minister with Hallelujah Acres.My concerns with regard to this book are not with a vegan diet which I understand and observe many to be on and to do just fine.My concerns are with the philosophy and teachings underpinning the book and how it is used to profit the author and the organization of Hallelujah Acres which seeks not just to have you change your diet, but to buy their products.The entire premise of this book theologically is based upon George Malkmus' interpretation of Gen 1:29 which he takes to mean that God created mankind to eat only fruits and vegetables. Based upon this interpretation, which is not accepted by a majority of Biblical Scholars, Malkmus suggests that meat entered the human diet after the Noah's Flood. While he does not suggest necessarily that eating meat itself is sinful, he does strongly push the idea that this was God's original plan for diet and therefore anyone seeking to eat optimally should consider this as the first choice.He goes further to teach that illness is caused and/or escalated by what he deems the Standard American Diet (conveniently acronymed as SAD for emphasis.)Chielf culprits are any and all meat products, dairy products and then sugar, flour, salt.It would be one thing if he left it here and invited you to join him with his diet plan.He doesn't however.
