The exciting follow-up to I Will Abolish the Bow: Christianity, Personhood, and the End of Animal Exploitation, Pride Goes Before Destruction takes a critical look at factory farming, which is driven by humanity's pride towards animals. Fitting to the title, this relationship with animals has bled into human affairs, as factory farming is responsible not only for animal cruelty but also for antibiotic resistance, environmental destruction, climate change, and many other issues. Matthew A. King criticizes humanity's pride and offers a biblical solution to its consequences: The New Covenant in Jesus Christ. Bristling with persuasive historical evidence and thoughtful, biblical interpretation, King makes a compelling case for the inclusion of animals within the sphere of Christian moral consideration, which can help heal humanity's fractured relationship with the planet and even their own health. Additionally, this book answers many questions and offers supplemental material to build on the arguments established in I Will Abolish the Bow.
