Product Description

Review

"Beautifully written and carefully balanced in its analysis of biblical texts and theological options, this book advances the conversation on animal ethics in lovely ways. Rarely can you say about a single book that it is both pleasurable to read and brimming with life-changing possibilities. It goes to the top of my list of teachable and readable books on a theology of compassion for animals." --Stephen H. Webb, author of Good Eating "If it is an uphill climb to teach Christians to be more generous and compassionate toward nonhuman animals, then Gilmour has climbed to the top and has marked a trail of biblical reflections on nonhuman animals to help us summit the mountain as well. This book is another great example of the changes coming in Christianity with regard to our nonhuman animal kindred." --Andy Alexis-Baker, coeditor of A Faith Embracing All Creatures "In this sorely needed book, Michael Gilmour has reminded us of a very simple yet often neglected theological truth: the end of creation is God, not humanity. By reflecting on the goodness of all animal life, Gilmour reminds us that animals are not just our biological kin, they are our covenantal kin. Our ongoing journey of communion with God includes all creation--and this book will tell you why that matters." --Tripp York, coeditor of The Peaceable Kingdom Series
