Super, Natural Christians Reviews
The vast majority of the book was wonderful. McFague does well in painting a philosophical, ecological theology. In theory, her work is great and much needed for the Church today. Where I disagreed with McFague was in practice. Are all pets oppressed, enslaved beings? Does humanity strip the subject-hood of animals by domesticating them? Beyond that, the line "It is only human beings who rape, overeat, and murder..." (p. 64) gave me little confidence in her remaining arguments. McFague was highly Darwinian (referring to the intervention of humanity as 'oppressive', 'controlling', 'patriarchal' and 'manipulative'), while at the same time calling forth the subject-hood of creation that is largely objectified by humanity. It was the implementation of her theory that confused and upset this reader. For that reason, I was left mostly disappointed in this work.
