Genetically Modified Food

Genetically Modified Food

How is genetically modified food affecting our world—and our souls?
Single Session Bible Study

Overview

Since 1996, the United States has been producing genetically modified crops. Scientists are spreading the techniques of industrial-style farming around the world. The U.S. also leads the world in producing and consuming convenience and fast food. Technologically enhanced food has made eating cheaper and easier, but is it better for us? For the earth and future generations? For the world's hungry? What are a Christian's responsibilities in a world where food is big business?

In the recent BOOKS & CULTURE article "Food™," author Eric Miller observes that "we've gone from raising crops to worrying about them." In this Bible study we look at the biblical roots of a Christian approach to food.
