More About the Author

Welcome to E G Lewis' Page and thank you for stopping by.
Writing has always been a part of my life. I am a former newspaper editor and publisher and my articles have appeared in many national and regional magazines. I also wrote and directed corporate training films. I currently write both Christian and Mainstream novels. I also have a number of Non-Fiction eBooks derived from research for my best-selling Seeds of Christianity™ Series.
The Series follows the life of Rivkah, a young girl who visited the stable in Bethlehem and held the baby Jesus. As an adult, she witnesses the crucifixion. Rivkah and her family eventually convert to Christianity, face persecution and move to Antioch with Peter. After spending time in Antioch, they again relocate to Rome where they encounter Nero's persecution. The books are Biblically and historically accurate and offer a window into First Century life.
I live in the USA on the Southern Oregon Coast near the ocean with my wife who is also a writer and editor.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book! 3 Aug. 2012
By Scott - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
This study of the diet and mode of living in the First Century makes intriguing reading. It's well-researched and covers each food group in-depth. I especially liked the chapter dealing with the things they didn't have. Lots of recipes and interesting insights make it a sure winner.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun and Informative 19 Sept. 2012
By Craig Alan Loewen - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
E. G. Lewis has written a book on the culinary arts of the Holy Land during the 1st century of the Common Era in a manner which is accessible to readers whose interests span many different arenas.

1. Chefs and hobbyists interested in historical cooking methods will find recipes galore.
2. History and Bible students will enjoy reading the historical and social context in which the Gospels took place.
3. Gardeners will marvel at the diversity accessible to the farmers in the ancient Near East and use the information to design their own Biblical-themed garden.

The sheer amount of information available at your fingertips will make future volumes in this series an asset to those who want to learn more about the world of the New Testament.

This is an unsolicited review.

3.0 out of 5 stars Quick informative read 21 Sept. 2012
By Libilover - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book was informative but nothing riveting. I'm really into art history, so I had an interest in this book because of the time period and food that I've often seen depicted in art related to Jesus. I did learn a few things and it is a quick read, worth paying a few bucks for.
