Reviews - What do customers think about Super, Natural Christians?
a different look and touch of nature May 15, 1999
With this book, the fourth, Sallie McFague brings her organic or ecological model to a practical conclusion. Our care for nature should start with our look (loving) and continue with our touch. She convincingly argues for a change from a subject/object to a subject/subjects mindset. This is not an apocalyptic doomsayer oracle but a hands-on advice on how we should love nature. There is hope for the future but it will take work. This is an excellent book, worthy of your time but be warned - you will want to go out and dirty your hands with the earth's soil.
