“The Global Guide to Animal Protection” includes disturbing accounts of human cruelty toward animals, as well as inspiring profiles of individuals like primatologist Jane Goodall who have worked to change exploitative practices. It includes a foreword by Archbishop Desmond Tutu.
Professor Linzey has lectured and broadcast extensively in Europe and the U.S. In 2001, the Archbishop of Canterbury awarded him a Doctor of Divinity degree in recognition of his "unique and massive pioneering work at a scholarly level in the area of the theology of creation with particular reference to the rights and welfare of God’s sentient creatures."
Since its founding in 1962, the Graduate Theological Foundation has become recognized the world over as a premier non-profit educational institution for ministry professionals and as a leader in ecumenical and interreligious education that encourages pluralism, fosters dialogue and supports academic excellence. We engage in scholarly research, academic publishing, awarding of professional and academic degrees across a range of disciplines, and awarding of fellowships and grants.
