"At a time when the animal rights movement has been repeatedly smeared as extremist, or even "terrorist," this volume shows that, in fact, its core values stem from a long history of nonviolent teachings in all of the world's major religions." Will Potter,

Covering doctrine and the lived experience of the world s religious practitioners, Call to Compassion is a collection of stirring and passionate essays on the place of animals within the philosophical, cultural, and everyday milieus of spiritual practices both ancient and modern. From Hinduism, Buddhism, and Daoism, through the Abrahamic traditions, to contemporary Wiccan and Native American spirituality, Call to Compassion charts the complex ways we interact with the world around us.
