Animal Theology is a 1994 book by the ethicist and theologian Andrew Linzey, that examines the treatment and status of animals from a theological perspective. In the book, Linzey reconsiders what Christians see to be God's original plan for humanity's ruling of nature. He argues against previous conceptions of this connection which have been used to justify animal cruelty, instead claiming that such a relationship instead implies that the mission laid out by God is a model of generosity towards the oppressed and vulnerable, which is applicable to both humans and other animals.
