Overview

For decades, Sallie McFague has lent her voice and her theological imagination to addressing and advocating for the most important issues of our time.

In this Fortress Digital Preview, readers receive the opening two chapters of Sallie McFague’s forthcoming Blessed are the Consumers (March 2013). Suitable to be read in just 30 minutes, these opening remarks comprise an insightful reflection on self, selflessness, and living well on a crowded planet.

For McFague, it is the practice of restraint that offers hope to a world bent on consumption. The world’s religious traditions have deep insights to offer in the pursuit of these practices; and it is imperative that people of faith realize the significant role they play.

This Fortress Digital Preview is perfect for those pressed for time, those new to McFague’s work, or those looking for brief encouragement in their ongoing work on behalf of the earth and the human family.
