Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This devotional work by a former therapist and animal rights activist aims to inspire pantheists ("everything is God and God is everything") to stay their nonviolent course toward animals and the world. No doubt the author would want the audience to be "everyman," but the language and structure ensure that only mystics will understand and appreciate it. Carman well summarizes her theme: "Every time one of us or a group of us moves toward the animal nations in peace and with the intent to honor, help, or learn from them-we are changing the very vibratory fabric of the universe." Her first few chapters are very repetitive. Talk of healing the earth's energy fields and seeking "the Holy Oneness of all things" becomes tiresome to readers who are less mystically or spiritually inclined. While there are some useful passages, and the appendix of prayers for animals is quite interesting, this could have been published in a shorter form, perhaps as a magazine article. Better books on animals and religion include Andrew Linzey's Animal Gospel and Michael Fox's The Boundless Circle. Both titles push for greater animal rights within a religious context, and Fox's work offers a similar viewpoint but is better organized and written.-John Kistler, Utah State Univ.
