"...As the meatless diet has grown in popularity over the years, a number of books have been written on the subject. Some of these explore the health reasons behind vegetarianism and point out how a vegetarian diet can help prevent heart attacks, strokes,cancer, diabetes and other diseases. Some books forcus on the ecological, world food and economic aspects of a meatless diet and show how to enjoy gourmet nutrition without having to spend a lot of money. Others describe how a plant kingdom is the primary source of vital nutrients and how vegetatian diets provide more than enough of the proteins,vitamins and minerals we need each day. Still other books consider many of the ethical, moral and philosophical reasons behind the vegetarian diet. Few works, however, have ever attempted to tackle the difficult subject of vegetarianism and the world religions. Food For The Spirit is the first book to do so with depth and clarity..."...Nathaniel Altman...
