Product Description

In Think: The Life of the Mind and the Love of God John piper shows us the intricate continuity between the Christian faith and intellectual development. Focusing on the life of the mind helps us to know God better, love him more, and care for the world around us in thoughtful ways.

While we must value the experiential an emotional elements of our faith, the intellectual aspects are far too often neglected and as Piper says in this book, 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 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.

Publisher's Description

John 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 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."

    Think: The Life of Mind and the Love of God, by Pastor John Piper. In this book Piper encourages Christians to think!

    "thinking is indispensable on the path to passion for God". Piper backs this claim up with scripture, and brings to light the dangers of the anti-intellectualism movement in the church. If you think it is a waste of time to read a book or to learn anything about theology or doctrine - you may be part of this movement without knowing it.

    At the same time, he makes it clear that using human intellect alone is also not scriptural. He also addresses relativism, showing the immorality, dangers and illogical constructs of this line of thinking and how to safeguard against it.

    Like all of Piper's works, it is incredibly deep and will require repeated reading to allow what is said to sink in. It is a good thing that it is a small book with very short chapters, to allow this to take place without using up too much of our time. Piper's expounds the scriptures to carefully to explain that either extreme in this Intellectualism/Anti-Intellectualism debate is dangerous.

    I urge you to read this book if you want to learn how to grow closer to God.
