Vegangelical by Sarah Withrow King Review
Among the many pressing social concerns that have galvanized evangelical Christians’ response—abortion, human trafficking, environmental degradation, and many others—the care of animals has received relatively little attention.
Yet as author Sarah Withrow King deftly uncovers in Vegangelical, animal stewardship is a necessary aspect of a holistic ethic of Christian peace and justice. Indeed, care for animal welfare correspondingly strengthens our care for environmental and human flourishing.
Practical, restrained in its conclusions, and grounded on a broader theology of Christian compassion, Vegangelical calls readers to a greater attentiveness to one of the primary relationships in God’s created order, that between humans and animals.

Cassandra's Review- I eat meat, and I love to do so. I encourage others to stick with the same plan of eating meat that we have had forever. While I do not think it fair to treat animals cruelly or inhumane in any way, some have to die respectively and for the purpose they were intended as to feed and keep humans and other animals alive.
One does not look down upon other animals killing each other violently and if God did not want that to happen it would not. So this book is a bit out of my league and did nothing but anger me a bit as to how closed minded a person is, by thinking they are so open minded. No, I do not intend for this to become a topic on my blog, it is a book that I have read for purposes only.
