The Body of God.

Eugene C. Bianchi teaches at the department of religion, Emory University, Atlanta, Ga.

Sallie McFague's The Body of God (Fortress Press, 1993) is an ecological theology that helps us rethink the Christian myth from within the direction of the Berry-Swimme vision. She reinterprets traditional categories such as creation, natural theology, God, Christ and eschatology in organic, ecological metaphors. McFague and a few other theologians have been pioneering a radical (in the sense of going to root sources) remythologizing of the Christian story in keeping with our new awareness of the earth story.
