Among the many pressing social concerns that have galvanized evangelical Christians responseabortion, human trafficking, environmental degradation, and many othersthe care of animals has received relatively little attention.
Yet as author Sarah Withrow King deftly uncovers in Vegangelical, animal stewardship is a necessary aspect of a holistic ethic of Christian peace and justice. Indeed, care for animal welfare correspondingly strengthens our care for environmental and human flourishing.
Practical, restrained in its conclusions, and grounded on a broader theology of Christian compassion, Vegangelical calls readers to a greater attentiveness to one of the primary relationships in Gods created order, that between humans and animals.
Sarah Withrow King is director of Christian outreach and engagement at People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA). Formerly the deputy director at Evangelicals for Social Action, Sarah earned an M.A. from Palmer Theological Seminary and is currently an associate fellow at the Oxford Centre for Animal Ethics.
sandra1 Stars Out Of 5VegangelicalJuly 16, 2016sandraQuality: 4Value: 2Meets Expectations: 1Vegangelical by Sarah Withrow King is a book trying to prove with Biblical references that one should not eat meat but the author forgot verses that point to the opposite.
Every moving thing that lives shall be food for you. And as I gave you the green plants, I give you everything. Geneses 9:3
As for the one who is weak in faith, welcome him, but not to quarrel over opinions. One person believes he may eat anything, while the weak person eats only vegetables. Let not the one who eats despise the one who abstains, and let not the one who abstains pass judgment on the one who eats, for God has welcomed him. Who are you to pass judgment on the servant of another? It is before his own master that he stands or falls. And he will be upheld, for the Lord is able to make him stand. One person esteems one day as better than another, while another esteems all days alike. Each one should be fully convinced in his own mind. .
She states Adam and Eve were vegetarian but she forgets the reason they were because the earth was perfect and every green plant had all the protean of meat in it. Even the animals ate only plants from the horses to the lion. She also over looks the fact that Jesus ate fish. And broke bread with his disciples.
I did not think this book poorly written but just a little to far fetched.
She over looked the wonderful gift of quail to the chosen people of God .
In the end I was glad i read it to see where vegetarian Christians may come from. I do not recommend you read unless you need a bases to see why one might be a diffrent eater.
I received this book from BookLook for this review.
Milk Donor MamaOhioAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5A must-readMay 27, 2016Milk Donor MamaOhioAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Vegangelical is a book about religion that discusses how humans should be caring for and protecting some of God's other creations: animals. While so many books have been written about human issues, other living beings have gotten little attention. The news is rife with stories of animal abuse and neglect, from leaving dogs in hot cars or chained up all day without adequate food or shelter to people who keep "pet" lions and tigers in tiny corrals all day. In this book, the reader is given biblical passages that relate to God's commands about caring for the animals.
Animal stewardship is a good hallmark of how humans treat each other. When we do not care about how animals are cared for, whether it is a cow going to slaughter or a dog forced into dog fights, this often extends into how people interact with one another. Mistreatment of animals often leads to abuse of people, and the abuse often gets increasingly violent. Hurting and killing animals has been found to be a sort of gateway to crimes like murder, especially in some of the most infamous serial killers.
This is an important read and I hope it might change the minds of some people who think that animals do not feel pain, sadness or happiness.
