"Hector makes complicated ideas feel more familiar, covering abstract and complicated debates within Christian theology in a way that even those new to the conversation can understand. This clarity helps demonstrate what's at stake even with abstract questions."--Presbyterian Outlook

A Seminary Coop Notable Book of 2023

"With an uncommonly soft touch, Kevin Hector guides readers along a journey that is at once surprising and familiar. Brimming with wit and intelligence, with the confidence and conviction of one still learning all he has to teach, Professor Hector presents Christianity as a way of life in which falling in love with God's good news, which demands and promises nothing less than the self's transformation, comes off as the most natural thing in the world."--Jonathan Tran, author of Asian Americans and the Spirit of Racial Capitalism

"Unpacking practices as varied and unexpected as corporate singing and laughter, Hector's marvelous new book displays the fundamentally practical character of Christianity as a matter of being formed to perceive, respond, and act in harmony with what is ultimately true and good."--Jennifer Herdt, Yale University

"A sophisticated and compelling account of Christianity as a salutary way of life rather than a mere system of coherent beliefs. Reading it carefully will be time very well spent."--Miroslav Volf, Yale Divinity School
