      This book redresses this imbalance by offering a rigorous academic treatment of the questions surrounding God and the suffering of non-human animals. Combining theological, philosophical, and biblical perspectives, this book explores the relationship between God and Creation within Christian :   Why Animal Suffering Matters matters. It is a smart, sensitive book from which academics and non-academics, philosophers and non-philosophers, the religious and the non-religious, and those with passionate and casual interests in animals, all will benefit."Price: $

    Animal Suffering and the Problem of Evil Nicola Hoggard Creegan. Seeks to respond to the theodicy problem while affirming an orthodox understanding of God as the one who will respond to prayer, and as immanently concerned with all suffering. Widens the parable of the wheat and the tares to act as a hermeneutical lens for both nature and society. "Animal Suffering: Philosophy and Culture explores how animal suffering is made meaningful within Western ramifications. It is often argued that today's culture is ambivalent in its attitudes toward non-human animals: on the one hand, many speak of the importance of 'animal welfare', and on the other, billions of animals each year are treated as little more than production units.

      In Why Animal Suffering Matters, Andrew Linzey argues that when analyzed impartially the rational case for extending moral solicitude to all sentient beings is much stronger than many suppose. Indeed, Linzey shows that many of the justifications for inflicting animal suffering in fact provide grounds for protecting them.   PETA co-founder Ingrid Newkirk and Forks Over Knives author Gene Stone teamed up to share fascinating accounts of animals’ sophisticated communication, stunning intelligence, and heartwarming empathy, as well as ways in which we can avoid contributing to animal suffering. The book is separated into two parts.

Schneider thus constructs an original, God-justifying account of God and the evolutionary suffering of animals. His book enables readers to see that the Darwinian configuration of animal suffering unveiled by scientists is not as implausible on Christian theism as commonly supposed.

Others acknowledge that animal suffering is real and evil, but attempt to reconcile it as a package deal with the good that comes from it. On this view, the only way God could bring about the kind of creation God wanted was for it to have these effects. For example, a world with no hurricanes and earthquakes would be a sterile, lifeless planet.

Trent Dougherty calls his book "a report from the frontier" (), because so few fellow analytical philosophers have written on the problem of animal pain. The philosophical disputation over God and evil has indeed been focused mainly on human suffering, not so much on the suffering of animals.

One of the most provocative tactics used by opponents of animal exploitation is to draw an analogy between human and animal suffering. Marjorie Spiegel’s “The Dreaded Comparison: Human and Animal Slavery” finds parallels between white oppression of African slaves in America and human exploitation of nonhumans.

"Death Before the Fall deals with the really big issues of what to make of Scripture in discussions of creation and evolution, and with the really tough challenge animal suffering brings to those discussions.

According to traditional theology, animals do not have rational and, therefore, immortal souls.Exploring how animal suffering is made meaningful within Western ramifications, the book investigates themes such as skepticism concerning non-human experience, cultural roots of compassion, and contemporary approaches to animal ethics.And his insights on animal suffering should prove helpful as believers wrestle with the central issues of God's grace in a world of both pleasure and pain, holiness and harrowing abuse.
