A few weeks ago, I picked up a book for my Kindle- Weeding Out Wheat by Luke and Trisha Gilkerson. I've been reading anything I can find about eating gluten free since I made the decision back in May to go gluten free.
Weeding Out Wheat was a new perspective. The authors considered not just nutrition but also Scriptural concerns for going gluten free. They addressed several concerns- some I had thought of and some I had not. Here are some of the things they look at in the book.
- Why are mentions of bread and wheat in the Bible and why does Jesus use it so much if it can be so bad for us?
- Does the Bible really address specific dietary instructions?
- What do I do about communion if I am eating gluten free?
Interspersed with this are testimonies of people who have gone gluten free and the results they've had with their own health.
I really enjoyed this. It's a short book. But the perspective it offers is different and good to consider if you're eating gluten free.
