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.

Its brevity 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.

George Hawkins Pember was born in 1837.  He was educated at Cambridge University where he took his M.A. in Classics at age twenty-six.  Upon his conversion to Christ, Pember determined to devote his scholastic talents to a close and comprehensive study of the Scriptures for the benefit of God's 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 expository literature.

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.
