About-

We want to live good lives, but determining what a good life is isn’t easy, especially if we want the lives we lead to be ours, rather than somebody else’s. Tom Kennedy helps us see why it is hard to find our way when it comes to living well and what we can do about that. Finding our way requires knowing who we are, understanding ourselves, and Christians, because of their experience with God, will understand themselves differently than others in at least some ways. Kennedy explores that understanding and discovers that Christian encounters with God lead to beliefs about God, human nature, forgiveness, values, and loving well that have important implications for what we do and feel, for how we should live. In clear and familiar language, and with probing questions, he helps us think more carefully, and deeply, about our identities and what it should look like for us to live well.

Endorsements & Reviews-

Performing a Christian Life is an excellent book. This insightful exposition is both philosophically astute and theologically rich and yet written in sparkling prose readable for those not steeped in philosophy or theology. With stories of moral exemplars sprinkled throughout and engaging questions at the end of each chapter, Tom Kennedy’s new book is a timely exploration of what it means to live a Christian life.”

—Steve Bouma Prediger, Professor of Reformed Theology, Hope College
