Why do elephants bury their dead? What makes birds sing and cranes dance? Do animals appreciate art? Do they know the difference between right and wrong? Do they experience awe and wonder?
In this revised second edition of his celebrated book, Reverend Gary Kowalski combines heartwarming stories with solid science to show that other creatures are not insensitive objects devoid of feeling and intellect but thinking, sentient beings with an inward, spiritual life.


In this revised edition of his celebrated book, Gary Kowalski grapples with the big spiritual questions around our relationship with animals — whether they have souls, self-consciousness, awareness of death, a capacity for recognizing beauty and creating art. Ultimately, he asks, what do we lose in a world without animals, and what does that mean for our ongoing relationships with the creatures with whom we share our world? Souls of Animals addresses these and a variety of related topics in beautifully written vignettes. Kowalski explores how animals play, their sense of altruism, their selfless ability to love. By "de-sacrilizing" animals, he argues, we make ourselves less human. The book contains thoughtful ideas for rituals and ceremonies, spiritual guidance, and readings and poems to use for solace in case a pet dies. “If we are to keep our family homestead — Earth — safe for coming generations,” writes Kowalski, “we must awaken to a new respect for the family of life."
