A Thinking Reed on David Clough’s “On Animals: Systematic Theology”

Lee M. over at A Thinking Reed has been posting his reflections as he works through David Clough’s new book On Animals: A Systematic Theology. The book promises to be a very exciting moment in the area of animal theology. It is the first work exclusively dedicated to the development of the doctrinal issues underpinning the Christian-theological understanding of non-human animals. The ultimate aim of this book, of course, is to provide an adequate theological foundation for a Christian ethics of human-animal relations (which task Clough will take up in the second volume). But rather than develop doctrinal issues as he goes, Clough has decided to dedicate an entire volume to doctrine first. He takes up the consideration of animals under the theological headings of Creation, Reconciliation, and Redemption respectively. Here are the links to Lee’s discussion (enjoy):

          1) Reading David Clough’s On Animals.

          2) On Animals: Creation.

          3) On Animals: Reconciliation.

          4) On Animals: Redemption.

I look forward to reading the book myself, but with financial constraints and a price tag of $116.25 I think I’ll have to wait awhile.

    Thanks for the links! By the way, Clough’s book is only $15 for the Kindle, if you happen to have one. (That’s what I’m reading it on.)

    I don’t have a kindle. But it’s price differences like this that may lead me to buy one. (I do have a kindle “app” on my laptop, so I could read it on my computer, I guess). BTW: Thanks for your reflections on this book. I’ve been enjoying reading your posts.

    Love the post. I too am blogging my way through the book. I loved it and can’t wait till Vol 2 comes out.
