Show Summary Details


The conclusion reiterates the intent, focus, and parameters of the book, and revisits the distinction between animal welfare and animal liberation. The conclusion offers two formal arguments based on information presented throughout the book, affirming both the religious requirement for a vegan diet and encouraging animal activism and animal liberation. After offering an explanation as to why few people are aware of the animal-friendly nature of religious traditions, the conclusion outlines five compelling reasons to change our consumption habits and adopt a plant-based diet. The book concludes by affirming the positive power of religious commitment.
