Do animals really have souls? asks Robert Hunt in his work, Is My Dog in Heaven? A Biblical Answer. If so, would this just be a comfort to animal lovers or would it enlarge our thoughts of God?
From earliest childhood, the author has had a deep conviction that his friends in the animal kingdom understood him and could share his feelings, whether of happiness or grief. It was second nature to him to believe they would also share the afterlife. To give a sound basis to his instinctive belief, the author, now a Presbyterian minister, looked to the Bible for reassurance. From the creation story through the covenants made both in the Old and New Testaments, he examines what the Bible has to say on the subject and the implications to mankind of the biblical answer.
