Product Description


"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

A New Look About Animals in the Bible Jan. 26 2015
By Dr. Elaine O. Chaika - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I love animals, and have a book "Humans, Dogs, and Civilization" due out by March, so I really read a lot about animals, particularly, but not exclusively about dogs. Since the general opinion among scholars is that the Bible is not animals-friendly, this book comes as a revelation. Gilmour knows both Testaments extremely well and cites chapter and verse about what the Bible says about treating animals. Still, the book is not preachy in any way. It's clearly written. Even if you don't care that much for animals, this will be a new slant on the Bible--and, no, I'm not a particularly religious person.
