(PUBEerdmans)That humanity is partly responsible for the environment is traceable to the pressures of world population and modern technologies. Wennberg here takes a solid, nuanced look at the moral complexities of our relationship to the animal kingdom, ending with case studies on factory farms and animal research. 358 pages, softcover.
After surveying the topic of animal advocacy from the perspectives of the church, environmentalism, and feminist theology, Wennberg looks at the nature of animals and relates his findings to influential moral theories and theorists. He also examines respect for animals, the moral status of humans, concerns for animals in the biblical tradition, and animal suffering in relation to the problem of evil.
