After Noah

Are animals there to be cuddled and protected? Slaughtered and eaten? Sacrificed to the gods? In After Noah, Dan Cohn-Sherbok and Andrew Linzey show how Jews and Christians have often failed to take account of the power of their traditions to promote a more compassionate and sensitive regard for animals. It argues that the way we treat animals is a benchmark for the kind of society we are, and that in recognising 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. After Noah is a pioneering work, defined to become essential reading, not just for students of Jewish and Christian ethics but for all people of faith who believe that, in devaluing animals, we ultimately devalue ourselves and out own souls.
