The Friends We Keep
Unleashing Christianity's Compassion for AnimalsBook - 2010
"Today we find ourselves in an anomaly in human history: many of our lives are empty of animals. We have pets and sometimes watch documentaries on Animal Planet, but few of us know how the other species on our planet really live today. And as Laura Hobgood-Oster reveals, many are not living very well--sadly, not very well at all. Seeking to awaken Christians to the place and, too often, plight of animals in the twenty-first century, The Friends We Keep gently but astutely introduces the situations animals face today--as companions, as animals in sport, as animals raised for food, and as creatures in the wild--and simultaneously retells a myriad of often surprising and instructive stories from the long, rich history of Christianity"--Cover, p. 2.
