The Meaning of Life, Part 4

"Global warming is not just another important issue that human beings need to deal with; rather, it is the demand that we live differently. We cannot solve it, deal with it, given our current anthropology. It is not simply an issue of management; rather, it demands a paradigm shift in who we think we are. This is certainly not the only thing that is needed, but it is a central one, for without it we cannot expect ourselves or others to undertake the radical behavioral change that is necessary to address our planetary crisis." p. 44
--Sallie McFague, A New Climate for Theology


  1. I am *definitely* getting that book---thanks for the plug, John.


  2. Thanks, Doxy. This is an important book. No wasted speculation with McFague...
