An examination of the critique of western dualism in Christian ecofeminist theology and New Age spirituality. The book explores the way in which Christian ecofeminist theologians have attempted to reconstruct theology through a rejection of dualism. It is shown that when dualism is removed from theological discourse, the tendency is to adopt a pantheistic perception of the God-self - both of which are shown to be inimical to the spiritual concerns of Christian ecofeminism. The problems this raises for Christian theology are highlighted through an examination of some recent New Age spiritualities. It is argued that the dualism takes different forms and that not all dualistic constructions need to follow the pattern of the traditional Western patriarchal spiritual dynamic.
This book is a thoughtful defence of the importance of retaining a version of dualism in ecofeminist Christian theology.Ecofeminist theologians have often tried to reconstruct theology through a total rejection of dualism. The body-soul dualism and the God-creation dualism are seen by many as the root of many evils committed against women and nature. McCulloch argues that, although some forms of dualism do have such negative consequences, a dualistic theology could avoid them. She further argues that the trend from a God-creation dualism towards pantheism in New Age thinking and ecofeminism is actually inimical to the concerns.McCulloch?'s study has important implications not only for theology but also for ethics and spirituality. She explores the contemporary critique of Western dualism mind/body, God/creation, subject/object, nature/culture and maintains that the dual apprehension of divine transcendence and immanence must always be held in balance in theological reflection.
