    1. What McFague sets out to do, she does well. With her scientifically formed conceptualizations and characteristic creativity, she builds on her earlier work of theological metaphor and ecological consideration into a sweeping rethinking of theology. Panentheism is not new, but her justifications and explications seem fresh and visionary. As a political theology this work was underdeveloped. It failed to give much concreteness to the situation of the oppressed, and because her connection to biblic [...]


    2. McFague describes a panentheistic vision of God - the whole universe as God's body empowered by the divine spirit. McFague develops such an alternative 'organic model' in response to the ecological crisis and what she believes as a 'common story of creation'. In the process she rejects classical notions of the 'church as the body of God' citing its' anthropocentric exclusivity as a reason and several models of who God is, namely deism, dialogic, monarchical and agential. She emphasises the range [...]


    3. I struggle with how to evaluate this book. I clearly have a very different view of theological method and norms than McFague does and that makes it difficult for me to see her methodology here as legitimate. To me, this doesn't feel like theology, and certainly not Christian theology. It feels like new age mysticism/panentheism wrapped in Christian lingo. There's very little here that offers any sort of concrete way of doing ecological theology and creation care, McFague rather prefers to stay a [...]


    4. I had a lot more difficulty with this book than I did the previous work I read by McFague. While in principle I agree with the need for such exercises as the one she undertakes here - outlining a potential model of God, in order to get us to "think differently," to help establish a paradigm shift allowing for the possibility of an embodiment or incarnational theology - overall I found the project as executed somewhat frustrating. Mainly I think this comes from unresolved epistemological question [...]


    5. I found understanding Sallie McFague’s, “The Body of God” a provocative yet difficult tome to complete. Most of the problem was mine as it seemed more appropriate for scholarly consumption. Definitely not for a layman unless very conversant with the vernacular of theologic/philosophic unique words and concepts.From the beginning McFague paints the perimeters of her main ideas and the reader soon realizes that this is not an attempt to develop some new truths about God rather another way of [...]


    6. Good book on ecological theology, proposing the creation as the body of God. McFague talks a lot about bodies and spatial relationships, as distinct from our usual emphasis on temporality. I think she makes some good points, useful stuff going forward as we reground theology incarnationally and immanentally.
