The title is confusing but the subtitle goes to the heart of what this book is about. Theologically savvy readers will read this book appreciatively; for most others it will be a challenge. All of that being said, this is a timely, challenging read that goes to the heart of what is before us as people living on a threatened planet.

Kenosis Nov. 25 2013
By Margaret Kiekhaefer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
McFague writes well from a mainline Christian perspective. She attempts to move Christians from the us and them mentality by showing the scriptural basis for humanity as part of creation rather than above it. She alludes to the facts that other religions have the same principles. Going deeper, are western Christianity, individualism, and capitalism the problem?

Environmentalism for the Christian community? July 31 2013
By Luc - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Voluntary poverty, kenosis, incarnational theology, universal selfhood, public action--these are the "strange attractors" for Sallie McFague's meditation on the twin problems of climate change (environmental degradation) and income inequality, and what can be done about such problems. Sainthood through self-abnegation provides a theological starting point. I doubt that very many non-Christians would want to read this book, just as I doubt that very many Christians who do read it will want to emulate the saints presented. I was relieved to learn that McFague herself doesn't seem to expect me as a middle-class American to be too much like these saints. Instead she ultimately focuses on Dorothy Day's idea of "the little way," doing a minor something rather than despairing. The writer herself is likeable, the book free of pomposity, though perhaps too long and a bit repetitive.
