The Bible's messages of love and compassion can be applied to our relationship with animals. Many commentators and users of the Bible have, over the centuries and up to the present day, used the Bible to argue that animals have no rights, that they were put on this earth for our use, and that we have no obligations to them. In his cogent, honest, and fully researched and referenced work, THE DOMINION OF LOVE, Norm Phelps attempts to encourage all who revere the Bible as holy scripture to open their hearts to the suffering that we inflict upon our nonhuman neighbours. He shows that the right of animals not to be imprisoned, harmed, and killed for our benefit flows naturally from the Bible's message of love and compassion and argues that this is the message of the Bible's most important passages dealing with our relationship to animals. He further responds to the defences of animal exploitation that are often made based on the Bible. Beautifully written, THE DOMINION OF LOVE is an essential addition to a growing body of literature that argues for a compassionate and non-exploitative reading of Holy Scripture.
