God's Green World
(Christian Ecology Group)

From The Vegetarian (May/June 1984)

This is an interesting little booklet containing a collection of essays giving the thoughts of some Christians on various topical issues such as Nuclear Weapons, Economics, Power and Authority. Two chapters will be of particular concern for vegetarians; ‘Christians and Animals’ by Barry Miles which sets out to show that it is wrong for Christians to devalue animals and that the scriptures say we must treat them with compassion. Roger Shorter’s chapter on ‘Vegetarianism’ touches on the question of ‘was Jesus a vegetarian?’ and though he gives no final answer, he provides a considerable amount of evidence from the bible that meat-eating has been over-emphasised by the incorrect translation of various words for ‘food’.
 
Definitely worth buying if you are interested in this topic, or if you need to counter the oft-met criticism that “it’s all right to eat meat because the bible says animals were put on earth solely for the benefit of man.”
