Introduction

Title: Vegangelical: How caring for animals can shape your faithvegangelical

Author: Sarah Withrow King

Publisher: Zondervan

Publication Date: 2016

Format: Print Book

Length: 173 Pages

OVERVIEW

King approaches the reader by acknowledging the stereotypes she fulfills straightaway: “I’m a Christian and an animal advocate, so I almost never get invited to dinner parties.” Continuing this conversational tone, King remains relatable without compromising the informative purpose of her words. Her information is backed up not only by animal welfare sources (cited in an index) but also by scripture. She also offers discussion questions that encourage deeper thought beyond the presented facts.

     Vegangelical goes beyond veganism. It discusses the morality of animal use in entertainment, research, and clothing. It challenges the non-vegan to examine areas of life involving animal mistreatment.

ASSESSMENT

Rating (1 to 5)

4

Suggested Audience

Vegangelical is directed at Christians who may be interested in more carefully examining how their day-to-day life affects the lives of God’s creatures.

Christian Impact

King emphasizes a topic that many Christians disregard: the poor treatment that humans offer to God’s creatures. She challenges everyone as God’s children to be aware of how they interact with creation.
