What is particularly Christian about attention to farmed animal welfare, and why is it important now, when the church hasn’t prioritised it before? Margaret B. Adam draws connections between scriptural interpretation, traditions, and teachings, on the one hand, and church communities’ relationships with farmed animals today, on the other.
Margaret B. Adam is Visiting Tutor of Christian Ethics at St Stephen’s House, Postdoctoral Researcher for a three-year AHRC-funded project on the Christian ethics of farmed animal welfare in partnership with major UK churches (http://www1.chester.ac.uk/cefaw), and Project Editor of CreatureKind (http://becreaturekind.org). She writes about animals, theological hope, and eschatological daily life ethics.
