Christians who are serious about their faith want to love God with all
that they are-heart and mind and strength. Books abound on the devotional
life, on commitment, on evangelism and practical Christian living, but few
take up what it means to love God with our minds. How do we learn to honor
God in the ways we think?
James Sire blazes a trail for Christians concerned about the discipleship
of our minds. After looking at the attitudes toward God and ourselves necessary
for the journey, he introduces us to the basics of the Christian world view.
Separate chapters discuss the foundations of knowledge and the relationship
between knowing and doing. With an eye to the practical, Sire offers specific
suggestions on getting to know what is good and getting to know the world.
He also provides valuable insights on how Christians might approach various
academic disciplines as disciples of Christ.
Here is a book for all who desire to love God with their minds. James
W. Sire, campus lecturer for InterVarsity Christian Fellowship and senior
editor for IVP, is the author of several books, including The Universe Next
Door, How to Read Slowly and Scripture Twisting as well as the pamphlet
Shirley MacLaine and the New Age Movement.
Includes an indispensable bibliography for developing a Christian world
