From Genesis to Christ, the Bible testifies to God's love and concern for animals. The same self-centeredness that led to the violence and abuse that has marked human relations also caused the abuse and exploitation of animals. The Bible, argues the author, calls upon human beings to stop their violence and abuse of each other and all other creatures. It promises that when they do, the sorrow and the suffering that marks life on Earth will give way to the joy and peace that God ordained at the creation of the world. In these compelling essays, Rev. J. R. Hyland explores the Old and New Testament and reveals the prophetic voices that called for compassion over killing, and humane concern for all of God's creation.

J. R. Hyland was an ordained evangelical minister who worked in prison ministry and migrant farmworkers as well as actively supporting issues of female equality and animal rights. For several years, Rev. Hyland edited Humane Religion, a bimonthly journal, and contributed numerous articles to religious periodicals. J. R. Hyland died in 2007.
