Description

 

Regent College, in partnership with A Rocha Canada, hosted an evening lecture with theological ethicist Dr. David Clough. In this lecture, David Clough introduces the second volume of his landmark work On Animals. Building on the theology of animals developed in Volume I, the book challenges Christians to recognize serious faith-based reasons to rethink their practice in relation to other animals, especially in relation to our use of them for food.

'On Animals I and II together represent the most significant Christian theological and ethical treatment of animals in the history of Christian ethics as an academic discipline. David Clough's devastating analysis of the systematic human mistreatment of animals, especially in the food industry, will have a revolutionary impact, not just on an academic field but on lived Christian behavioru2014including my own. Every so often a book is produced that sets the standard for all other work in a field. This is one of those books." David Gushee, Distinguished University Professor of Christian Ethics, Mercer University President, American Academy of Religion.

The lecture was followed by response from Matthew Humphrey.
