He spent ten years in youth ministry, both urban and high school, before entering a sales career in 1986. His articles have appeared inTouchstone(the Society of St. James) andYour Churchmagazine.

Read from the Book

"No, only the basis of them," Mike replied. "Animal rights is a very Christian idea, actually. William Wilberforce, the English statesman who was instrumental in the abolition of slavery, was an animal rights advocate, but his rationale was decidedly different from Williams' or Singer's. To Wilberforce, mankind was truly different from the animal kingdom, not in degree but in kind. Man is made in God's image, but as such we don't own the world-we can't do with its creatures anything we like. We are, in fact, stewards of the world and, that being the case, have a responsibility to treat our fellow creatures humanely. The Bible speaks to the humane treatment of animals. So in raising and harvesting animals for food or clothing, we need to be aware of their basic needs and welfare. And if we are going to kill them as part of that harvesting we don't do it brutally or callously; we do it humanely. God will hold us accountable. So conserving habitats for manatees and owls and protecting dolphins and sea turtles from the tuna nets are all very Judeo-Christian ideas.
