Product Description

A Christian mind and mentality can be dificult to cultivate in a post-modern age. Without a Christian standard to keep our growth in check one can be easily led astray. Building off of Harry Blamires' groundbreaking The Christian Mind, and revised since it's initial publication in 1984, Barclay calls true Christians to use that renewed Christian mind to love God, and to do that with the entire mind.

An unthinking love toward God is both disrespectful and a bad precedent to set in life decisions, so building a strong Christian mind should be every Christian's responsibility. This is the way the Bible has given to His Church to combat the relativism and pragmatism of the world system, and Developing a Christian Mind gives the reader positive ways to put this into practice.

Publisher's Description

Having a Christian mind is considered important in the New Testament - Jesus himself told us to give attention to it.

But what exactly is a 'Christian mind'... and how does it work in practice?

What happens when we try to love God with all our mind, as well as with all our heart and soul and strength? Does it mean that we have to become intellectuals? Certainly not! It will have an intellectual aspect for intellectual people, of course, but in the New Testament it is something very practical and down to earth.

Because our minds are involved in the simplest decisions, the challenge to develop a 'Christian mind' is something we cannot escape, being either obedient or disobedient in the matter. Either we try to please God by loving him with all our mind, or we avoid this responsibility, hoping that somehow a mindless love is good enough.

Every Christian who has been spiritually renewed has a new mind. Our task is to love God with all of it. It is easy to be inconsistent, and discover that we are being more controlled by a non-Christian outlook than we realise - often with tragic practical results.

The Christian who is willing to refuse bribes, or shun immorality, or speak the truth to his own loss, or make professional sacrifices in order to help the poor, or preach the gospel, represents the victory of a Christian mind over our normal self-seeking. He has made up his mind to please God rather than himself.

The relativistic post-modern mind is desperately in need of a reference point - whilst denying the possibility of its existence. Developing a Christian Mind provides that reference point.

Editorial Reviews

"..It affirms in no uncertain terms the value of all culture and the neccessity of all Christians to be engaged in it up to the hilt, yet never ignorantly, naively or carelessly. All of which of course make it eminently suitable for church members and students in the UK! Geoffrey Stonier the editor is to be commended for providing so useful a tool."
"Oliver Barclay's Developing a Christian Mind is a real gem. If you have not read this title before, it is a real MUST!"
