In a world bent on consumption, it is imperative that people of religious faith realize the significant role they play in advocating for the earth, and a more humane life for all. Sallie McFague argues that the root of restraint lies in the ancient Christian notion of Kenosis, or self-emptying, which she introduces through the life stories of John Woolman, Simone Weil and Dorothy Day.
