A wide range of first-rate contributors show that theological reflection on non-human animals and related issues are an important though hitherto neglected part of the agenda of Christian theology and related disciplines.
The book offers a genuine interdisciplinary conversation between theologians, philosophers and scientists and will be a standard text on the theology of non-human animals for years to come.
Contributors include: Esther D. Reed (Exeter), Rachel Muers (Leeds), Stephen Clark (Liverpool), Neil Messer (Lampeter), Peter Scott (Manchester), Michael Northcott (Edinburgh), Christopher Southgate (Exeter)
'No one can live a moral life in today’s world without asking difficult questions about how we should treat the non-human animals with which we play, which we eat or cultivate, or whose habitats we destroy. This is an timely and invaluable guide to approaching these questions from a distinctively theological perspective. The editors and contributors to this volume have done the Christian community an enormous service in tracking a range of traditional approaches while also opening up some radical and deeply imaginative ways of thinking theologically about our fellow creatures. These both illumine our own self-understanding as human beings and make an important contribution to how we conceive of the common good.'
