What is Chia?

Salvia hispanica, commonly known as chia, is a species of flowering plant in the mint family, Lamiaceae, native to central and southern Mexico and Guatemala. The 16th-century Codex Mendoza provides evidence that it was cultivated by the Aztec in pre-Columbian times; economic historians have suggested it was as important as maize as a food crop. Ground or whole chia seeds are still used in Paraguay, Bolivia, Argentina, Mexico and Guatemala for nutritious drinks and as a food source.

Chia is grown commercially for its seed, a food that is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, since the seeds yield 25–30% extractable oil, including α-linolenic acid (ALA). Of total fat, the composition of the oil can be 55% ω-3, 18% ω-6, 6% ω-9, and 10% saturated fat

Chia seeds are typically small ovals with a diameter of about 1 mm (0.039 in). They are mottle-colored with brown, gray, black and white. The seeds are hydrophilic, absorbing up to 12 times their weight in liquid when soaked. While soaking, the seeds develop a mucilaginous gel-like coating that gives chia-based beverages a distinctive texture.

Chia seed is traditionally consumed in Mexico, and the southwestern United States, but is not widely known in Europe. Chia (or chian or chien) has mostly been identified as Salvia hispanica L. Today, chia is grown commercially in its native Mexico, and in Bolivia, Argentina, Ecuador, Nicaragua, Guatemala, and Australia. In 2008, Australia was the world’s largest producer of chia. A similar species, Salvia columbariae or golden chia, is used in the same way but is not grown commercially for food. Salvia hispanica seed is marketed most often under its common name “chia”, but also under several trademarks.” This information was obtained at

Personal Opinion:
Personally, I love this book! I have not had a chance to get any chia seeds but I am wanting to do this diet.

About the Translation
“The New International Reader’s Version (NIrV) is an English translation of the Christian Bible. Translated by the International Bible Society (now Biblica) following a similar philosophy as the New International Version (NIV), but written in a simpler form of English, the NIrV seeks to make the Bible more accessible for children and people who have difficulty reading English, such as non-native English speakers. The authors describe it as a special edition of the NIV written at a third grade reading level.
Here is a comparison of a passage in the King James Version, the New International Version, and the New International Reader’s Version:

KJV: “And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.” (1 Timothy 3:16, KJV)
NIV: “Beyond all question, the mystery from which true godliness springs is great: He appeared in the flesh, was vindicated by the Spirit, was seen by angels, was preached among the nations, was believed on in the world, was taken up in glory.” (1 Timothy 3:16, NIV)
NIrV: “There is no doubt that godliness is a great mystery. Jesus appeared in a body. The Holy Spirit proved that he was the Son of God. He was seen by angels. He was preached among the nations. People in the world believed in him. He was taken up to heaven in glory.” (1 Timothy 3:16, NIrV)”

Taking you on an insightful journey in scripture you will better understand God’s many names.

What’s inside:

Prologue: The Camel Brand, The human name quest started in Babel

Introduction: A Kaleidoscope of names, God is a multi-faceted personality. He forms us into His image as we allow Him to brand us with His character.

  1. What’s in a Name?

    Our relationship with God grows as we get to know the character that underlies His names.

  2. A Faith Journey:

    God revealed Himself to Moses as Yahweh and increased his faith that he could lead Israel out of Egypt.

  3. A Rainbow Spectrum of Glory:

    Exploring the connection between God’s glory and His names. The difference between fear and reverence.

  4. Approaching Glory:

    The God of glory is eternally committed to relationship with us.

  5. Scorched Ground:

    Names that express the holiness and righteousness of God.

  6. Pledging Allegiance:

    The Lord of hosts, the Lord of banner, and other names that reflect God’s supremacy.

  7. Intersecting with the Everlasting God:

    We find life’s enduring purpose in partnership with the Eternal God.

  8. The Gods Must Be Crazy:

    If He is God of gods, then who are the gods and how much greater is He than them.

  9. Ministry to Foreign Affairs:

    Jesus’ exclusive claim to be the way, the truth, and the life. And how to explain that awkward name, “Jealous God”.

  10. Like Father, Like Child:

    The mission of Jesus; to reveal God as Father and to reconcile us to Him as His adopted children.

  11. Satisfied By God:

    God satisfies thirsty souls. Jesus is the ultimate thirst-quenching fountain.

  12. Riding by Faith:

    Names that celebrate God’s relationships with people. Abraham, Hagar and David all had relationships with God that open different windows on His character and ways.

  13. Getting Personal:

    God changed Jacob’s character and his name as He revealed more of His own names.

  14. The Interpreter:

    Emmanuel is “God with us” in three senses.

  15. Welcoming the Good Shepherd:

    The title “Shepherd” combines many aspects of God into one role

  16. Two Sides of a Coin:

    Jesus’ divine and human sides are evident in many of His names, especially those mentioned in the nativity stories.

  17. Hark the Herald Angel:

    Why were the Bethlehem shepherds so excited about “a Savior, Christ the Lord”?

  18. Four Threads in an Embroidery:

    Tracing the roots of the messianic titles of Jesus, in particular, Son of David, Son of God, Son of Man, and Servants of the Lord.

  19. A Disappointed Messiah:

    Jesus fell short of most contemporary messianic expectations but He was still God’s Messiah.

  20. Who Do You Say That I Am?

    The names that people called Jesus say a lot about Him—and them.

  21. A Matter of Life and Death:

    Jesus, the Resurrection and the Life, calls everyone to deeper faith.

  22. Dominoes to Domino:

    Jesus’ resurrection convinced His followers that He is both Lord and Son of God.

  23. God’s Saving Art:

    Many names of God concern salvation and deliverance and they assure us of security in Him

Epilogue: The Long Hallelujah; The name quest reaches its final goal as Babylon burns.
