The Christian life is more than thinkingbut not less. And its more than feelingbut not less. Its more than doing as wellbut never less. Healthy followers of Jesus engage their minds, hearts, and hands in glorifying him.
This volume, built on the 2010 Desiring God National Conference and John Pipers recent book Think: The Life of the Mind and the Love of God argues that thinking and the affections of the heart are inseparable. Our emotions fuel our thoughts for God. Likewise, hard thinking about God leads to deeper joy in our relationship with him. And both, in turn, help us focus outward as we express a greater love for others.

I know most of the contributors of this book pretty well. A couple of them I am glad to call friends. And a couple of them, to be honest, I have found myself at odds with on a few occasions. But thats why I like this book. It shows the possibility for civil discourse, and it reminds us that its just as important to be nice as it is to be right. Allow it to move you closer to Jesus and closer to the poor. So read it and thenthink. love. and act.
