Trapping and Christian Ethics

Dr. Stephen Vantassel

I recently had the pleasure of corresponding with Dr. Stephen Vantassel, who is dean of students and tutor of theology at King's Evangelical Divinity School.  Dr. Vantassel has done extensive writing and research on human-wildlife relations from a Biblical perspective, and one of his articles will be of particular interest to trappers.  "Should Wildlife Trapping Have a Place in a Christian Environmental Ethic" is a scholarly, Biblical critique of some of the main claims of the animal rights movement.  It is an excellent article, and I highly recommend that you read it and share it with others who are interested in this subject. 

Dr. Vantassel's website can be found here, which includes information on his book Dominion Over Wildlife?  An Environmental-Theology of Human-Wildlife Relations.

We can be thankful that Dr. Vantassel is shedding the light of sound scholarship on the animal rights debate.
