    biblical

    this is a very thought provoking book from a very biblical perspective. It's very well written, and has a lot of quoted speeches and letters I find very insightful. 4 stars

    A voice for our fellow creatures in fur, fin and feather . . .

    Superbly crafted, meticulously researched and absorbing. The deplorable cruelty, utter indifference, disrespect and pain we inflict on all animals, in the name of sport, science, "conservation," food, and vanity, make this book, at times, difficult to read. A SHOULD read for anyone who hunts, fishes, eats meat, wears fur/leather/down/wool. Perhaps this book would make people think twice about using animals the way they do and taking them so much for granted.

    Brilliant Philosophy of Mercy

    This is such an eloquent and thoughtful Writing. The author is a true Theologian and deep thinker. The case he makes for mercy towards Gods creatures, extends to God's mercy towards ourselves. One premise: that a Society must not cherry pick from the Bible to serve it's own ends, but must serve the teachings in full, must resonate with those searching for greater understanding. Those of us who accept our daily plight but look around and know deeep inside that something is wrong with the values of our society, might start with this book, whose philosophy on our treatment of animals really is a discourse on how we treat ourselves. I say, good for you Matthew Scully

    A nightmare that will make you all the better.

    This book is so honest and horrifying that it's hard to read it all at once. It is the responsibility of man to care for animals, but instead we are exploiting and torturing them at every opportunity. This book is my favorite because it is written from the unique perspective of a conservative and Christian.

    Life altering book

    Mr. Scully's book is guaranteed to make you think twice about how you view and treat animals. His arguments are well-developed and are supported not only by compassion, but by factual data, too. Anyone who reads this book will be forever changed.

    One of the best books on animal abuse in a generation

    I heard Matthew Scully on a New York radio station last year and I was impressed that as a conservative Republican he cared that deeply about animals. This book is thoughtful, intelligent and compassionate. This book was wriiten for those people who don't give a damn about animals. They will care after reading this book!

    Must read for all those who have compassion

    Intelligent, well researched and very insightful. This is a groundbreaking book for all the animals; whether companion animals or livestock, who suffer daily throughout the world. Written by a very prominent author, anyone interested in animals, what we can do to help them as well as looking at are own 'human' nature- this book is a must.

    excellent

    I had a chance to hear Mr. Scully on NPR 02-12-03 while at work. Definately by far a very intelligent man with some great ideas and thoughts for people to open their minds to.
