Close readings of key biblical texts pertaining to dietary customs, vegetarianism, and animal rights comprise the substance of this book. Rather than ignoring or offering a literal, 20th-century interpretation of the passages, Young analyzes the voices of these conflicting dietary motifs within their own social contexts.
Includes bibliographical references (p. 178-180) and indexes.
