Contemporary Christian faith and practice tend to address spiritual, mental, and emotional issues but ignore the body. As a result, many believers are uncomfortable in their own skins. Shoop addresses this 'dis-ease' with a theology that is attentive to physical experience. She also suggests how worship services can more fully invite God to inhabit every part of a congregation- including their flesh and blood bodies. For when individual Christian bodies are allowed to flourish, so will the unified body of Christ.
