To read about C.S. Lewis's theology of animals in an essay Andrew Linzey from the Anglican Theological Review, visit www.findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_qa3818/is_199801/ai_n8802633

Tom Regan, philosopher, ethicist and animal rights activist, is convinced that those Christians who are concerned with the exploitation and mistreatment of animals, are faced with a choice: to continue supporting the hypocrisy or to actively participate in correcting the wrongs and the religious institutions which support them.

In an essay series subsequently published in book form, Dr. Stephen Kaufman of the Christian Vegetarian Association applies the concepts of cultural anthropologist Rene Girard to Christianity and animals. Girard has argued that rivalries lead to scapegoating violence. A main theme of the Bible is that God cares about all creation and does not want victimization.
