Publisher's Description

John Piper ofrece la perspectiva de un pastor sobre la vida de la mente al retar a la iglesia a pensar detenidamente para la gloria de Dios. El nuevo libro de Piper ayudará a los cristianos a “pensar sobre el pensamiento.” Enfocarse en la vida de la mente nos ayuda a conocer mejor a Dios, amarlo más y a cuidar del mundo. Junto con el énfasis en las emociones y la experiencia de Dios, también debemos practicar el pensamiento cuidadoso acerca de Dios. Piper sostiene que “pensar es indispensable en el camino a la pasión por Dios.” Por tanto, ¿cómo podemos mantener un equilibrio saludable entre la mente y el corazón, el pensamiento y el sentimiento? Piper nos insta a pensar para la gloria de Dios. Él demuestra con la Escritura que glorificar a Dios con nuestras mentes y corazones no es uno-u-otro, sino ambos y. Pensar cuidadosamente sobre Dios alimenta la pasión y el afecto por Dios. De la misma manera, la emoción que exalta a Cristo nos guía al pensamiento disciplinado. A los lectores se les recordará que “la mente sirve para conocer la verdad que alimenta los fuegos del corazón.”

John Piper offers a pastor’s perspective on the life of the mind in his challenge to the church to think hard for the glory of God. Piper’s newest book will help Christians think about thinking. Focusing on the life of the mind helps us to know God better, love him more, and care for the world. Along with an emphasis on emotions and the experience of God, we also need to practice careful thinking about God. Piper contends that “thinking is indispensable on the path to passion for God.” So how are we to maintain a healthy balance of the mind and heart, thinking and feeling? Piper urges us to think for the glory of God. He demonstrates from Scripture that glorifying God with our minds and hearts is not either-or, but both-and. Thinking carefully about God fuels passion and affections for God. Likewise, Christ-exalting emotion leads to disciplined thinking. Readers will be reminded that “the mind serves to know the truth that fuels the fires of the heart.”
