Product Description

Philip Kenneson here combines rich, theologically grounded reflection on Christian life and practice with stunning cultural analysis. After a probing introductory chapter on the necessity and complexity of cultural analysis, Kenneson takes up each of the fruits of the Spirit listed in Galatians 5:22-23. He explores what each fruit means in its biblical context, then investigates how key traits of late modern Western culture inhibit the development and ripening of each fruit.

Life on the Vine can be read on several levels: as biblical and theological study, as an inspiring work on spirituality, as cultural criticism and as a practical guide to Christian discipleship.
