520    "From sheepdogs to wombats to coyotes to jellyfish, 
       animals serve important biological roles in the world. But
       those who love animals know there's more. We know our 
       connection to other creatures is more than fur, scale, or 
       feather deep. In Saints of Feather and Fang, writer and 
       lifelong animal lover Caryn Rivadeneira looks at the ways 
       that animals--from the pets who share our homes to the 
       mysterious creatures of the deep--serve as spiritual 
       guides for our hearts, minds, and souls. Christian 
       scripture teems with mammals, birds, and reptiles, and 
       research on animals' sensory responses suggests that we 
       not only care for our beloved animals but they, at times, 
       care for us. A therapy pony who visits stroke victims, a 
       rescued pit bull who shows restraint, hedgehogs that 
       scurry down highways made just for them: these stories 
       offer entrée to tender, whimsical, and deeply theological 
       reflection on creaturely delight, instinct, curiosity, 
       adaptation, fear, and awe. In them we discover and connect
       with the God who beckons, rescues, and shelters us with 
       stretched-out wings."--publisher's website.
