All Christians should be required to read this book.,
This review is from: Is God a Vegetarian?: Christianity, Vegetarianism, and Animal Rights (Paperback)
I am saddened by a previous review by "a reader" on July 26, 2000. I wonder if this person even read the book. Or did they read it with a closed mind and heart? What makes this book so wonderful is the author's ability to remain unbiased while using scriptual evidence to answer very complicated questions. Unlike some of the more complex books on the study of Christianity and Animal Rights (e.g. Andrew Linzey's Animal Theology), Richard Alan Young writes in a clear, consise, and easy-to-understand manner yet manages to answer all the important questions that arise when considering this complex subject. This should be required reading for anyone who calls themself a Christian. Truthfully, it would be easier to not read this book and not think about how your life adds to the suffering and violence inflicted upon animals (ignorance is bliss), but I urge you to read this book, ask God to open your heart and mind, and let Him through His Word change the way you view animals.
