Gary Kowalski, author of The Souls of Animals, explores the ancient stories of the Creation, Noah's Ark, Abraham's near sacrifice of Isaac, the torment of Job, and Jonah and the whale to explore their relevance today--especially in regard to how we view and treat other animals. Kowalski draws together the fascinating findings of animal science with the best religious scholarship to create an ecologically inspired rendition of the scriptures that honors the sanctity and kinship of all living beings. In lyrical and affecting prose, Kowalski uncovers the psychological and spiritual connections we have with other animals and those, such as children, who are left in our care. He calls for a different reading of the ancient wisdom of the Bible--one that advocates nonviolence, tolerates difference, and demands justice.
