Cover for LINZEY: Animal Theology

Animal Theology

Animal rights is animal theology, in Andrew Linzey's view. He argues that historical theology, creatively defined, must reject humanocentricity. He questions the assumption that if theology is to speak on this issue, "it must only do so on the side of the oppressors." Linzey's theological query investigates not only the abstractions of theory, but also the realities of hunting, animal experimentation, and genetic engineering. He is an important, pioneering, Christian voice speaking for those who cannot speak for themselves.

"An excellent book. . . . Clearly written, logically organized, and exhibits sound scholarship. What Christianity can offer to the animal rights debate more than anything else is what Linzey calls the 'generosity paradigm.'"--Daniel A. Dombrowski, author of Hartshorne and the Metaphysics of Animal Rights
