Publisher's Description

How does an understanding of the non-human lead us to a greater understanding of the incarnation? Are non-human animals morally relevant within Christian theology and ethics? Is there a human ethical responsibility towards non-human animals? In Animals, Theology and the Incarnation, Kris Hiuser argues that if we are called to represent both God to creation, and creation to God, then this has considerable bearing on understanding what it means to be human, as well as informing human action towards non-human creatures.

Author Bio

Kris Hiuser received his PhD from the University of Chester and has lectured at Redeemer University College, McMaster Divinity College and The Light Project. He has contributed to numerous journals including The Ark, Scottish Journal of Theology and Toronto Journal of Theology.

Editorial Reviews

Negotiating the place of non-human animals in Christian doctrine is a pressing task for contemporary theologians, with far-reaching implications for urgent moral challenges such as factory farming and mass extinctions as a result of human activity. Hiuser's careful, searching, and scholarly pursuit of this question, in dialogue with the incarnation theologies of four major figures in the Christian tradition - Anselm, Gregory of Nyssa, Maximus the Confessor, and Karl Barth - is a substantial and welcome contribution to this new theological project.
