Mere Fidelity: Animals

Human beings were created to share the world with other living things and animals, like humans, carry the breath of life. Men and women of faith like John Wesley, William Wilberforce, and Hannah Moore understood the importance of animal stewardship as presented in the Bible and began to draw attention to a more compassionate treatment of animals centuries ago. The Every Living Thing Statement seeks to recapture the heart of a movement started by these reformers.

In this podcast, Karen Swallow Prior, alongside Andrew Wilson, shares what drives her to a more compassionate treatment of animals. Listen to Mere Fidelity: Animals now available on iTunes and gain some wonderful insights into the history of animal welfare by Evangelicals, Biblical perspective, and personal convictions by both Karen Swallow Prior and Andrew Wilson.

As [Hannah] More's Christian convictions grew, so, too, did her conviction that benevolence toward animals was part of a holistic Christian worldview, and her writings came to reflect these evolving views.
