A Review of the Literature on Obesity, Health Measurements, and the Food Industry: A Theological Commentary on Three Approaches to these Problems
2018 1-4955-0707-6
In this book, Dr. Browning joins the fat acceptance movement in condemning discrimination against people because of their body size. It draws from theological ethics to reject the charges of "gluttony" and "sloth" directed at people solely because of their weight and shape. It applies these vices to the food industry and its less-than-energetic concerns about the health of its customers.
