In this essay George
Hawkins Pember opens up the realm of the fantastic. Imagine a
world in which animals are endowed with speech and they do not stalk one
another for food. Imagine a time when humans and animals alike
will be redeemed. By examining scriptural references to animals,
including an extensive look at the four-headed Cherubim, Pember helps
uncover the history and destiny of animals in the Kingdom of God.
This essay by eminent
nineteenth-century British scholar and Bible expositor was originally
issued by Hodder and Stoughton of London as a pamphlet with no
publication date. Its few pages and narrow focus set it apart from
the imposing volumes that comprise the body of Pember's work.
notwithstanding, this remarkable treatise stands as a model of the
author's unassailable scholarship and courageous determination to
examine social issues in the light of biblical truth.
Pember does not preach
here. He simply investigates God's Word and allows his readers to
draw conclusions about their dominion over God's living creatures.

people. His penchant for meticulous scholarship, extensive
knowledge of ancient cultures, and keen spiritual insight combined to
produce works of a quality and depth with few parallels in Christian
G. H. Pember died in
1910, leaving a rich legacy of reclaimed spiritual truth, upon which
subsequent reformers such as J. N. Darby, Watchman Nee, G. H. Lang, and
T. Austin-Sparks would build.
