ABOUT THE BOOK:
It was only after exploring feminist theology, Jewish mysticism, and Buddhism that author Mary Lou Randour experienced a spiritual transformation through understanding and feeling responsibility for other species. In Animal Grace, she urges readers to build a mature relationship with animals based on two basic commitments: to expand awareness and take compassionate action. As well as a call to action, Animal Grace is a book of stories about how both domestic and wild animals have helped people heal from illness, cope with death, and learn to love. Randour devotes several chapters to how the worlds religions approach human relationships with animals, and she offers comprehensive directions on how to enter and maintain relationships with other species.
With rare passion and insight, Mary Lou Randour invites us into the company of other animals, where essential and neglected parts of us can come alive. She shows us how not to be afraid of the suffering we encounter there, and how shared pain can open us to live more responsibly and more joyously. Joanna Macy, author of Coming Back to Life
