A New Climate for Theology God, the World, and Global Warming by Sallie McFague

A New Climate for Theology God, the World, and Global Warming


A New Climate for Theology God, the World, and Global Warming by Sallie McFague

At heart, McFague argues, global warming occurs because we lack an appropriate understanding of ourselves as inextricably bound to the planet and its systems. This book not only traces the notion of unlimited desire that fuels our market system, it also paints an alternative idea of what being human means.


Sallie McFague has brought the fruits of decades of thinking about God and the world, about individual and community, about humanity and nature, about reality and metaphor, about the sacramental and the prophetic, to bear on the critical issue of climate change. She calls Christians to new feeling, new acting, and new thinking. Perhaps as the threat to our world that she describes so well presses more obviously upon us, the church will begin to listen. -- John B. Cobb Jr. Professor Emeritus, Claremont School of Theology
