Sacrifice...the ritualized killing and destruction of plants, animals or people in worship of a higher power: Over the centuries, it has been a critical element of spiritual connection for people around the world. Sacrifice turns up in a wide variety of ways: From the Passion of Christ to the Sun Dance of the Lakota people; the Biblical Binding of Isaac to English harvest folksongs or patriotic acts of gallantry. Ellen Kushner explores the complex meanings of sacrifice in our lives.
