This volume is a project in systematic theology: a rigorous engagement with the Christian tradition in relation to animals under the doctrinal headings of creation, reconciliation and redemption and in dialogue with the Bible and theological voices central to the tradition. The book shows that such engagement with the tradition with the question of the animal in mind produces surprising answers that challenge modern anthropocentric assumptions. For the most part, therefore, the novelty of the project lies in the questions raised, rather than the proposal of innovative answers to it. The transformation in our thinking about animals for which the book argues results in the main from looking squarely for the first time at the sum of what we are already committed to believing about other animals and their place in God's creation.

MEDIA REVIEWS
David Clough's On Animals is indisputably the most important and comprehensive theological treatment of animals to have appeared in any language at any time in the Christian tradition. -- Brian Brock, Reader in Theological Ethics, University of Aberdeen * International Journal for Systematic Theology *
I am neither a Christian nor a theologian, but anyone concerned about human mistreatment of animals will hope that Clough's view prevails among Christians. -- Peter Singer, Ira W. DeCamp Professor of Bioethics, Princeton University, USA
Clough's work in On Animals is progressive and explorative ... a new benchmark for the field. -- Matthew Barton, University of Leeds, UK * Theological Book Review *
A mix of constructive theology and critical doctrinal survey -- James R. A. Merrick, St. Francis University * Anglican Theology Review *
