This is the most comprehensive book about the history of animals across spiritual traditions from Stone Age humans to the present day across cultures religions and the ages It is immensely readable and enjoyable and is a fantastic guidebook to the shifting roles of animals in spiritual systems codified by humans When my son was little I took him to a pet blessing at a church with our dog The priest made a point of telling everyone that pets don t go to heaven Mind you no one had asked There were than a few crushed kids Since then I ve been very interested in how others answer that uestion The First Half Of This Book Really Took Me Awhile first half of this book really took me awhile get through There was a lot of philosophy and history The second half had many stories Of Individual Animals Which I Really Enjoyed individual animals which I really enjoyed the whole I thought it was a really good look at the uestion of animals going to heaven Ptolemy Tompkins s The Divine Life of Animals will captivate readers even if they don t hold many of his beliefs The author was on a uest to show that animals have souls and they like human beings will also be in heaven What motivated Tompkins was his experience with pets Penny a stray dog that he encountered as a child Angus a dwarf rabbit that was referred to as a little man the life of a manatee named Moose and a friendly black bear named Little BitAt first the writer had problems finding literature to support his thesis He therefore decided to examine the writings of primitive societies in order to understand the spirituality of the lives of ancient peoples and animals So Tompkins looked at animism in cultures of Europe Asia Africa and Latin America He referred to the Egyptians at the time of the Pharos the Greek and Roman s be The author s thesis is animals share in the divineand the man in his role as steward leads animals across a bridge to the eternal Tompkins borrows from many disciplines and from many religious traditions to support and develop his premise Academic in style and tone it maybe somewhat daunting for the average reader The personal elements throughout the book will appeal to anyone who has loved an animal Wherever you are going they are going too James HerriotThis book is part philosophy part religion part biology Tompkins attempts to answer the uestion that any Animal Lover Has Asked lover has asked at one time or another Do animals have soulsHe looks at this uestion through A ourney through 20000 years of history and myth in search of the answer to a single uestion Do animals have souls Anyone who has ever mourned the loss of a cherished pet has wondered about the animal soul Do animals survive the death of the body or are they doomed to disappear completely when they leave this world behind Both scientists and religious authorities have long scoffed at the idea of animals in heaven Yet the uestion endures In this wise immensely readable book Ptolemy Tompkins embarks on a uest for the answer taking us on a top speed tour of the history of the animal soul Eually at home with mainstream and alternative ,

The Divine Life of AnimalsHe book The subtitle One Man s uest to Discover Whether the Souls of Animals Live On is not really addressed or at least not in any detailed or sustained manner I Souls of Animals Live On is not really addressed or at least not in any detailed or sustained manner I that I only read the first half in it s entirety and The Black Sheeps Baby (Into The Heartland) (Into The Heartland) (Silhouette Intimate Moments, just perused the rest Iust didn t like it I m not even sure why I bought the book other than I ve read others by this author which I enjoyed and felt curious to see his take on animals I mean regardless if an animal has a soul which the author never seems to give his definition of what he believes the soul is or is soul less it does not diminish my admiration and love for them This book was choppy sloppy a bit self centered and wellI can t think of anything positive to say so I ll stop I rarely write reviews but I have a lot to say about this book Let me start with the fact that before I read this book I firmly believed in animals souls I did not need convincing I realize this story is about one man s ourney of discovery and maybe that is what bothered me Many reviewers seemed to struggle with the and maybe that is what bothered me Many reviewers seemed to struggle with the matter of the first half of the book I did not but the author s logic freuently escapes me The author dismisses Eastern religion almost completely although it has uite a lot to say about animals He makes a weak return to it in the last 10 pages Tompkins also admits little connection to Christianity but finds several compelling arguments there After a while the book begins to smack of someone who already has the answer in his head and is ust selectively picking people who agree with the conclusion he has already drawn Tompkins goes off the deep end diving into fringe and pseudo science later in the book When you cite the spiritualist beliefs of Arthur Conan Doyle a great author but notorious victim of frauds as evidence you have lost your credibility Some of the animal anecdotes and crazy science did make for interesting reading However if I was on the fence with the fate of animals this book would make me doubt based on the flawed logic and in some instances ridiculous proof I certainly believe if there is reincarnation or a heaven for us it applies to animals as well This however is not the book to make a compelling argument That type of book does exist I have read at least one example of such and come upon enlightening passages in my other reading My advice is to seek elsewhere and maintain the hope you already carry with you. Place made up of both matter and spirit in which animals are every bit as important spiritually speaking as the humans with whom they share the world Though it is startlingly original The Divine Life of Animals also feels strangely and instantly familiar for it reveals truths that many of us have held in our hearts already waiting only for someone to give fresh voice to one of the oldest and most trustworthy intuitions we possess  The Divine Life of Animals offers a compelling and timeless vision of the relationship between humans and animals that will have you looking at the animals in your life with new eyes From the Hardcover editi.
