Product description

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)

Product Reviews

'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.'

Oliver Davies, Professor of Christian Doctrine, King's College London

'Amidst a sweeping ground swell of posthumanist and other interdisciplinary challenges to the comfortable boundaries we humans have constructed between nature and culture, nature and technology, the human and the machine, also the rigid barriers erected between genders, species, humans and God, comes this truly groundbreaking book, a book with many voices that responsibly deconstructs the age-old boundary between humans and animals. Into a field almost completely devoid of specific theological contributions now steps this outstanding anthology.For anyone wondering how to think religiously about animals this paradigm-shifting book will be a serious but exciting challenge. On a more interdisciplinary level it proposes a deeply serious philosophical and theological challenge of the boundary between the human and the non-human in evolutionary terms, precisely the kind of questions that are now fully engaging primatologists, archeologists, and paleontologists, as they too probe the morality of animals. The carefully selected essays in this book present us with a sophisticated and nuanced broad scope of issues with transversally integrated arguments that will draw in readers from all disciplines and perspectives. I am happy to very strongly recommend this book. '
