Ancient Israelites Eat

What Did the Ancient Israelites Eat? Diet in Biblical Times. By Nathan MacDonald. (Eerdmans, 172 pp., $16.00 paperback.) MacDonald examines values expressed in the production, consumption and sharing of food in the Old Testament. The book would be an excellent catalyst for discussion of contemporary ethical concerns about food, such as its radically uneven availability, food safety and cost, and ecological problems of production and distribution.

Selected by Kathleen M. O'Connor, who teaches Old Testament at Columbia Theological Seminary in Decatur, Georgia.
