"This book was decades ahead of its time, and is just as relevant today as it was thirty years ago. With fresh voices and new ideas alongside the gems it is known for, Living More with Less is all about preserving artful living, celebrating the age-old wisdom of simplicity, and protecting skills that are in danger of extinction. It is like a cookbook for life."
—Shane Claiborne, author of The Irresistible Revolution, speaker, and activist
"This message is even more important than it was thirty years ago, because we're closer to the abyss we've dug with our rampaging economies. Herein lies sound advice for living sensibly—and for freeing up the energy you need to join with your neighbors in the drive for a fair and durable earth."
—Bill McKibben, author Eaarth: Making a Life on a Tough New Planet
"This timely revised and updated edition is exceptionally wise, urgently necessary for the sake of saving our planet, pertinently and personally practical, always adaptable to train us for the next step, gently escorting us to actions for the sake of our sanity, and accessibly appropriate for all! Who could not but rave about this book!"
—Marva Dawn, author of Unfettered Hope; Being Well When We're Ill; and Keeping the Sabbath Wholly
"Living More with Less is about a way of living rooted in the Christian faith. It's about following Jesus who cared for the poor. It tells the stories of those who live with less—a countercultural move in a society of excess. Our planet is groaning and we desperately need the kind of thoughtful essays and tips in this book to show us the way forward."
—Ron Sider, founder and president of Evangelicals for Social Action
"In recent years global interconnectedness has made us more aware of worldwide injustices; consumer culture, environmental changes, and energy crises have only heightened our sense that things are not as they should be. The collective wisdom of Living More with Less is a tremendous gift to us in that it articulates a holistic vision for a better way as well as practical insights for making that life a reality."
—Albert Y. Hsu, author of The Suburban Christian
"As someone who wants to pattern my life after the person of Jesus in very practical and contemporary ways, Living More with Less is a volume to underline and dog-ear and highlight and bookmark. I highly recommend it for those who aspire to live well."
—Margot Starbuck, author of The Girl in the Orange Dress and Unsqueezed
"What I love most about this anniversary edition is the opportunity to hear a chorus of diverse but harmonious voices, singing together for the first time in one volume. Living More with Less . . . is a book filled with hope and encouragement."
—Nancy Sleeth, co-director of Blessed Earth and author of Go Green, Save Green: A Simple Guide to Saving Time, Money and Godís Green Earth and The Year of Living Without: One Womanís Quest to Regain Peace and Quiet.
