Danilo Di Moia Di Moia من عند Çay Mahallesi, 37800 Araç/Kastamonu, تركيا
واحدة من أفضل الموارد على التلمذة حولها. الكتاب العظيم. يركز هذا الكتاب على الوصول إلى القلب وتوجيه الناس إلى المسيح ويوفر حكمة عملية للقيام بذلك. يوضح المؤلف أن التلمذة ليست للقساوسة المدفوعة الأجر بل هي جزء من حياة كل مسيحي. أنا أقدر أيضًا تركيز التلمذة على أفضل وجه في سياق الكنيسة المحلية وبين الأشخاص الذين لديك (أو تبنيهم عمداً). انتقادي الوحيد هو أن بعض العمليات والاستراتيجيات ، خاصة في النصف الثاني من الكتاب ، ليست مرتبطة بوضوح بالكتاب المقدس كما أريد.
This is a great book. My rule is to borrow from the library and then if I really love a book, I purchase it. This is one that I am going to purchase. I love the way Michael Pollan writes. This book really opened up my eyes, but not in a preachy politically correct way. It explores the history of farming in this country and the problems with industrial farming. But that really does not describe the book. It is so much more than that description. It a book that ask the reader to think about many issues regarding the way we think about food. The speed with which we acquire our food impacts our appreciation for it. We give little thought to what we are eating, but if you were put in the position of having to hunt and gather our dinner, we would have a new appreciation for it. This book will change the way you think about what you are eating. A few facts: 4,510 calories of McDonalds = 1.3 gallons of oil 1/5th of U.S. petroleum is used to transport food. Corn is heavily subsidized by the government to the tune of $19 billion which represents 25% of payments to farmers. Because corn is over–subsidized by the government. As a consequence there is a surplus of corn. Enter the corn-fed American Steer. “Cow is by nature not a corn eater.” "Enter the feedlot, pens where these Steers are fed corn. CAFO: Confined Animal Feeding Operation." “… the feedlot is a city built upon America’s mountain of surplus corn — or rather, corn plus the various pharmaceuticals a ruminant must have if it is to tolerate corn.” Between 15% and 30% of cows ready for slaughter have diseased livers. Urbanization of life stock creates disease requiring the use of antibiotics. “Here the drugs are plainly being used to treat sick animals, yet the animals probably wouldn’t be sick if not for the diet of grain we feed them.” “Here animals exquisitely adapted by natural selection to live on grass must be adapted by us — at the considerable cost to their health, the health of the land and ultimately to the health of the eaters — to live on corn for no other reason than it offers the cheapest calories around and because the great pile must be consumed.” “Because a polyculture of grass, with it’s wide diversity of photosythesizers exploiting every inch of land as well as every moment of growing season, captures more solar energy and therefore produces more biaomass than a cornfield, whereas all of the grass grown in a pasture finds it way into the rumen.” “… the large quantities of beta-carotene, vitamin E and folic acid present in green grass find their way into the flesh of the animals that eat grass.” “..that flesh will have considerably less fat than the flesh of animals fed exclusively on grain” “As our diet — and the diet of the animals we eat — shifted from one based on green plants to one based on grain (from grass to corn), the ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 has gone from roughly one to one (in the diet of the hunter-gatherer) to more thatn ten to one. “
Pretty racist, but important to read.
