  • I stopped agreeing with most theologians I read awhile back, but reading McFague was a bit like discovering the theological fragments that float in the back of my mind suddenly coherently placed on paper in front of me.The problem with this is, that while predominately in agreement, I have the strong feeling that many of her arguments are not on solid ground; that, in fact, they really are hanging in mid-air. Only I can't articulate the problems with the whole framework yet, or somehow put it al [...]


  • A textbook for a Brite course in Fall 2016, Spiritual Life and Leadership - From the Publisher: "A compelling vision-before it's too late In this splendidly crafted work, McFague argues for theology as an ethical imperative for all thinking Christians: Responsible discipleship today entails disciplined religious reflection. Moreover, theology matters: Without serious reflection on their worldview, ultimate commitments, and lifestyle, North American Christians cannot hope to contribute to ensurin [...]


  • McFague's theological work is a challenge to any well-off North American Christian to live less conspicuously and more simply. Her ideas of God as reality, the world as God's body, and humans as the hands of God are radical to her idea of Christians who should live to be more communal-minded and less as Westerners idealizing individuality. All should hear her wake up call to sustainability and care of the earth as a theological mandate. I loved it!


  • Takes North American Christians and the middle class to task! As a non-Christian the theology aspects held less interest to me, but honestly everyone should read this book and think about its contents long and hard. This does not only apply to the American middle class, this applies to all of us. Well done McFague, well done


  • McFague's treatment of economic theology proves just the same as her other works: fantastic. Also, she is surprisingly confessional in this volume and deeply personal, making it that much better.


  • Of course I agree with McFague's view of the world as it could be, but I find it weak that she leaves it to the economists to figure out how her model could actually work.
