After Noah Summary

After Noah: Animals and the Liberation of Theology by Andrew Linzey

A comprehensive study of Jewish and Christian teaching about animals, this text argues that the treatment of animals is not only a moral issue, but also a theological and spiritual one. The authors show how Jews and Christians have often failed to promote a compassionate and sensitive regard for animals. The text argues that the way we treat animals is a benchmark of the kind of society we are, and that in recognizing the true, and biblically based, value of animals, we liberate ourselves from the idolatry which is to be found at the heart of much contemporary spirituality. It is addressed to all people of faith who believe that, in devaluing animals, we ultimately devalue ourselves and our own souls.

Table of Contents

The need for celebration; the Jewish tradition - the Hebrew Bible and the rabbis; the Jewish tradition - rabbinic development; the Christian tradition - living the Christlike life; how animals can liberate Jewish and Christian theology.
