Call to Compassion: Religious Perspectives on Animal Advocacy

Lantern Books, 2011

Call to Compassion is a collection of stirring and passionate essays on the place of animals within philosophical, cultural, and religious worldviews both ancient and modern. Exploring viewpoints from Asian traditions (Hinduism, Buddhism, and Daoism) and Abrahamic traditions, as well as contemporary Wiccan and Native American spirituality, Call to Compassion reveals lived experiences and passionate convictions regarding nonhuman animals from a diverse spectrum of the religious viewpoints.

At a time when the animal rights movement has been repeatedly smeared as extremist, or even "terrorist," this volume shows that, in fact, its core values stem from a long history of nonviolent teachings in all of the world's major religions.
