What People are Saying About This
“Tim Savage’s Discovering the Good Life is a real accomplishment. It begins with one of the most universal of questions: What is the good life? Then it answers it by taking us through the Bible, summarizing its whole story through the intercanonical theme of three treesthe Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil, the Tree of Life, and the great Branch, the shoot from the Stump of JesseJesus himselfwho took our curse by dying on a tree. This volume is ultimately an apologetic for the Christian life in response to a culture dedicated to seeking personal fulfillment but finding that very thing more and more elusive.”
Timothy Keller,Founding Pastor, Redeemer Presbyterian Church, New York City
“With one foot planted firmly in Scripture and the other in culture, Tim Savage unpacks the fullness of life that can be ours right now. If you have ever wondered what ‘abundant life’ should look like, here is the answer! Discovering the Good Life is poetic theology that teaches, refreshes, and, yes, surprises us with all that is available in Christ.”
Alistair Begg, Senior Pastor, Parkside Church, Chagrin Falls, Ohio

In Discovering the Good Life, Tim Savage wisely explains the story of Scripture using three trees as guideposts. If you want to experience abundant life, this book faithfully leads you to the treasure of all treasures and the giver of all goodness: Jesus.”
