Controversial, but significant. Relying on process theology, McFague urges the reader to consider nature the 'new poor,' for whom all Christians should take a preferential option. To surmount the current ecological crisis, we need a model of the earth as God's body.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Eco Feminist Study  Jan 15, 2007
This was a useful book if Ecofeminism is your subject. It was one of the recommended books for the Radical Readings module of Exeter University's Theology degree. It does give another voice to add to the inevitable Rosemary Radford Reuther's. Unfortunately, I managed to accidentally purchase two copies so if anyone wants one - let me know.
Ann Butcher
Exceptional!  Jan 8, 2000
McFague looks at some of the current images of God and how those images play out in our everyday lives. She makes it clear in the introduction who the book is written to, what the purpose of the book is (and what it is not), and the weaknesses of the book. It is not about "shaping theology to science" (ix), instead it is about a way of thinking. She states on page viii in the introduction that the point of the book is "to help those of us from this background... ['First-world, privileged, mainstream Christians'] to begin to think and act differently, to think and act as if bodies matter." She conveys this by using the model she provides (the universe as the body of God) and filtering through this model some common thoughts about creation, theology, Christology, ecology, and more.

This book is beautifully written and interesting to read. I highly recommend it.

I am so ready for an apocolypse  May 6, 1999
Just when you thought every rediculous theory had been put into print, here comes Sally McFague and her organic model of political correctness. Can we please have more new definitions for everyday reality? Before I read this book, I had no idea that I was a morphic descendent of the protozoan patrea conspiracy. If you don't already hate old white men in America, and you're looking for a reason to, buy this book, and get your carpet cleaned by Sally McFague.
get ready for a paradigm shift  Apr 17, 1999
This ecological theology makes the best sense of all the eco-theologies I've read. Her inclusive organic model can be used by men, women, lesbian, bisexual and gay people. This opened a new way of thinking for me that can make a difference not only in my life but hopefully also in the lives of the South Africans I will come into contact. But most important it changed my understanding of my place in the universe and in our beautiful country. Do yourself a favour, buy this book and study it. But be warned, your patriarchal mindset will be shattered. I really enjoyed this book and I am looking forward to study her other books that's on their way. Thank you Sallie.
