Reorienting our religious life from the supernatural to the super, natural, she suggests, can help us see these earth others . . . as both subjects in themselves and as intimations of God.In fascinating discussions of city planning and wilderness, of photography, hiking, gardening, recycling, urban decay, and poverty, but also of incarnation, embodiment, and sacramentality. McFague urges the reader's conversion from the arrogant eye to the loving eye. She suggests many ways people can cultivate encounters with nature and engagement in justice.
