Brian Wilson will sign copies of his new book Dr. John Harvey Kellogg and the Religion of Biologic Living at two upcoming events. The first takes place November 25 at Schuler Books and Music in Grand Rapids, MI, at 7 p.m. Then on December 7, he will be at the Barnes & Noble in Battle Creek, MI, from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.
In his new book, examines Kellogg's role as a physician and a theological innovator and places his religion of “Biologic Living” in an on-going tradition of sacred health and wellness. With the fascinating and unlikely story of the Battle Creek Sanitarium as a backdrop, Wilson traces the development of this theology of physiology from its roots in antebellum health reform and Seventh-day Adventism to its ultimate accommodation of genetics and eugenics in the Progressive Era.
