About Keith Akers

I’ve written three books, Disciples (Apocryphile Press, 2013), The Lost Religion of Jesus (Lantern Books, 2000), and A Vegetarian Sourcebook (G. P. Putnam’s Sons, 1983). I’ve also been published in VegNews, Vegetarian Times, and other vegetarian and vegan publications. Besides vegetarianism, simple living, and the history of religion, I’m also very much interested in ecological economics, limits to growth, peak oil, and environmental issues. Underlying all of these interests is the theme of compassion.

I’ve been involved with various vegetarian groups for over a quarter of a century, including the Vegetarian Society of D. C. (where I served as President), the Vegetarian Society of Colorado (where I also served as President), the International Vegetarian Union (where I served as Regional Secretary for North America), and the Meetup group Denver Vegans.

The quickest way to find out more about me is to take a look at this web site and my books. If you’re local to Denver, visit us at the Denver Vegans. If you’re not local, send me an e-mail (see below), drop me a card, or comment on something on my blog that interests you.  Stay in touch.
