Animals at Home on the Earth: Lessons for People of Faith
Those of us who live in urban and suburban areas often have pets or watch documentaries on Animal Planet, but for the most part the lives of all the other species on our planet are invisible. Seeking to awaken Christians to the place (and, too often, plight) of animals in the twenty-first century, Professor Hobgood-Oster introduces the situations animals face today: as companions, as animals in sport, as animals raised for food, and as creatures in the wild. She also provides instructive ways for how people of faith can respond with compassion and hospitality. Co-sponsored by the Humane Society of the US.
