summary
This book is a collection of readings from Sallie McFague’s most essential theological works. In this collection, Sallie McFague offers a lucid and powerful guide to theological thinking about God and the world, individual and community, humanity and nature, reality and metaphor, the sacramental and the prophetic, and the critical issue of climate change. She calls Christians to new feeling, new acting, and new thinking.
