In “Will Dogs Chase Cats in Heaven?” the author raises many thought-provoking questions about the soul nature of animals and the intriguing possibilities of their inheritance in the “New Earth.” I am always interested to see what sources an author relies on to buttress conclusions and it was quickly obvious Dan Story spent a lot of time doing background research for this book. For me, this is critical information and a strong indication of the overall content reliability and conclusions drawn. Mr. Story knows his bible and I really appreciated the many biblical citations provided. In particular, the references pointed me to some supporting biblical passages I would surely have otherwise missed. Additionally, he draws on various scientific studies (I especially appreciated the mind-brain material) as well as other non-biblical sources. His approach gives a fair and balanced tenor to the subject.
More than just animal lovers will treasure this book.
Will Dogs Chase Cats in Heaven?: People, Pets, and Wild Life in the Afterlife, is a well-constructed and soul-enriching work. In a logical and systematic manner, Dan considers the question of whether or not animals will exist in heaven.
In Part One, “Scientific and Biblical Evidence for Animal Immortality,” Dan provides a strong theological foundation for God’s value of animals independent of humans, which serves as the premise for the remainder of the book. After reading about the many distinctive traits and self-awareness animals have, one question remained: Do these traits suggest a moral conscience in animals? Perhaps this is a question Dan will answer on his blog.
Part Two, “People, Pets, and Wildlife in the New Heaven and Earth” caused tremendous hope to arise in my soul from simply contemplating the new Heaven and Earth beyond the hope for our beloved animals. I could greatly anticipate my future experience in heaven. Additionally, considering God and His heart for all creation, as Dan explains using Biblical references, I found myself breaking out in spontaneous praise with tears of joy.
Part Three, “Animal Resurrection and the Possibility of “Talking” with Animals in Heaven,” provided some additional prospects concerning how all God’s creatures may intermingle in our resurrected state. I especially appreciated the consideration of God providing special blessing upon animals and creation itself, both which suffer on this Earth because of the sin of humanity.
Beyond a book that will greatly encourage those who have loved pets that have passed on, this book is for anyone interested in expanding their knowledge about the scientific distinctions between the “mind and the brain” that give credence to human and animal immortality, which in turn should case a person to consider his or own eternal future.
While I received a complimentary copy of Dan Story’s book, I am under no obligation to write a favorable review. The review I provide here is authentic.
