Has Christianity, a religion with incarnation at its heart, devalued the flesh through an over-emphasis on the cross? In this article Lisa Isherwood's response is an overwhelming 'yes'. Isherwood argues that the devaluation of the flesh has hindered Christianity's efforts to address the genocidal realities of global capitalism. She suggests that a return to the tree found in Eden and sensuously engaged with by our foremother Eve, will provide a sounder base for the development of a Christo-ethic that can offer alternatives to advanced capitalism.
