  • Divine Life of Animals
  • by Ptolemy Tomkins
  • Price: $22.99

On a trip in the Yucatan as a boy, Ptolemy Tomkins first pondered the idea that animals might have souls. As he slipped food from his plate to a starving mongrel on the street, he saw a look of such hope in the dog's eyes that he later described as: a glint of the light of heaven within. The Divine Life of Animals blends ancient insights and the great faith traditions of East and West with vivid stories of animals today--to paint an picture of an inclusive cosmos, in which animals are every bit as important spiritually as the humans with whom they share the world.
