Thomas Jefferson: A Biography of Spirit and Flesh
Thomas S. Kidd’s book, Thomas Jefferson: A Biography of Spirit and Flesh (Yale, 2022) has been named Book of the Year by World News. Dr. Kidd’s book is a masterclass in the art of historical biography as he examines Jefferson’s outsized influence on the American founding while integrating profound insights from Jefferson’s spiritual and moral life.
Recently on the Credo Podcast, Thomas S. Kidd joined Gary Steward and Matthew Barrett to discuss the many difficult tensions that rise to the surface in the thought and life of Thomas Jefferson. They also addressed how Christians today should think about the triumphs and tragedies of historical figures who have come before them with humility and grace.
