By Andrew Linzey

"I do not know why you are spending all of your time in this. They re basically animals for heaven's sake! That was once the response of 1 of Andrew Linzey's fellow scholars at King s collage, London, whilst he used to be learning theology within the Seventies. on account that then, the now Rev. Dr. Andrew Linzey has been arguing that animals aren't in simple terms something, yet relatively that they topic to God, and will accomplish that to us.

In this number of essays, Linzey counters together with his prevalent wit, erudition, and perception, a few modern (and possibly excellent) demanding situations to animal rights from ecotheologians, the Church, and politicians. He contends that faraway from the occasionally shallow judgments of these who imagine animals unworthy of theological attention, the Christian culture has a wellspring of resources and assets on hand to taking animals heavily. rather than being marginal to the Christian event, Linzey concludes, animals can take their rightful position along humans as creatures of a similar God.
