Draws together the views of the early Church, contemporary biblical and theological scholarship, and post-conciliar teachings to develop a theology of animals based on Catholicism's fundamental doctrines and to claim that we can hope that God will include animals of the present age in the kingdom inaugurated by Christ and that this should guide our responses to animals.
