This article provides a review and critique of Andrew Linzey’s article "C. S. Lewis’s Theology of Animals" (1998). In his article, Linzey, modern-day father of the Christian animal advocacy movement and director of the Oxford Centre for Animal Ethics, evaluates fellow Anglican C. S. Lewis’s contributions to a theology of animals. The article considers Lewis’s perspective on animals and Linzey’s evaluation of the same within four general categories: animal pain, animal resurrection, human superiority, and human cruelty. The contributions of both authors to a theology of animals are acknowledged, but the lack of theocentric focus in their mutual thought is questioned.
