In To the early Christians, self-denial was the sum of the Christian life. Our late modern world, by contrast, often views self-denial as a tool of repression or self-hatred. Despite this, a growing number of contemporary Christian voices argue that we can recover the early church's emphasis on asceticism while still learning from modern objections to it. Join Dr. Wesley Hill as he explores this conversation and draws out its implications for a renewed, culturally relevant program of ascesis.
