Jordan Peterson's lectures and writings on psychology, philosophy, and religion have been a cultural phenomenon. Yet Peterson's own thought is marked by a tensive suspension between archetype and reality--between the ideal of Christ and the God who acts in history.

Jordan Peterson, God, and Christianity: The Search for a Meaningful Life is the first systematic analysis, from a Christian perspective, of both Peterson's biblical series on YouTube and his bestselling book 12 Rules for Life, with an epilogue examining its sequel, Beyond Order. Christopher Kaczor and Matthew R. Petrusek draw readers into the depths of Peterson's thought on Scripture, suffering, and meaning, exploring both the points of contact with Christianity and the ways in which faith fulfills Peterson's project.

Christopher Kaczor is Professor of Philosophy at Loyola Marymount University. A Fulbright Scholar, Kaczor did postdoctoral work as a Federal Chancellor Fellow at the University of Cologne and as William E. Simon Visiting Fellow in the James Madison Program at Princeton University. He was appointed a Corresponding Member of the Pontifical Academy for Life of Vatican City, Professor for the Renewal of Catholic Intellectual Life, and a core team member of a Templeton Grant. He has written more than a hundred scholarly articles and book chapters. An award-winning author, his fifteen books include The Seven Big Myths about the Catholic Church and The Seven Big Myths about Marriage. Kaczor's views have been featured in The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, The Los Angeles Times, The Huffington Post, National Review, NPR, BBC, EWTN, ABC, NBC, FOX, CBS, MSNBC, TEDx, and The Today Show. Matthew R. Petrusek received an MA (Yale University) and PhD (University of Chicago) in religious ethics and is the Professor of Catholic Ethics and Assistant Director at the Word on Fire Institute. He specializes in Christian ethics and moral theology, though lectures broadly, in English and Spanish, on philosophy, theology, social issues, the new evangelization, and the Catholic intellectual tradition. In addition to serving as a Word on Fire Professor, he has written and hosted the bilingual show Reasons to Believe / Razones Para Creer at WordNet TV, co-authored Jordan Peterson, God, and Christianity: The Search for a Meaningful Life (Word on Fire Institute), co-edited Ethics and Advocacy: Bridges and Boundaries (Cascade Books) and Value and Vulnerability: Contemporary Interfaith Dialogue on Human Dignity (University of Notre Dame Press), and published in numerous academic journals. He lives with his wife and children in southern Minnesota.
