"In Animals Are Not Ours (No, Really, They're Not), Sarah Withrow King challenges us to look again at texts that may feel familiar, but only because we've read them a thousand times from the same perspective. But what if we change perspective? What if the biblical writers and the people they wrote about didn't see the world as we see it? What if those writers and people were not western, linear, dualistic thinkers who saw people as separate from creation, but rather as part of it. What if God cares deeply for the entire community of creation? If so, then Withrow King's book is a gift to us all, offering one of the most comprehensive examinations of God's treatment of animals (and fauna) that I have ever seen. And as the title hints--she has fun doing it. Animals Are Not Ours is a great and important read."
--Lisa Sharon Harper, author of The Very Good Gospel: How Everything Wrong can be Made Right
