Head, Heart & Hands

Dennis P Hollinger

$27.99

Paperback
As Christians, we are to love God with all of our being - heart, mind, soul and strength. But many of us tend to overemphasize one aspect or another, and as a result our faith becomes imbalanced.

Some of us have an intellectual faith but lack compassion or spiritual discipline. Others of us have a vibrant, heartfelt relationship with God but lack commitment to truth or doctrine. And many of us overlook translating our faith into service and ministry.

In this book ethicist Dennis P Hollinger presents a holistic, integrative vision for reuniting Christian thought, passion and action. He shows how individuals, churches and movements throughout history have focused on either the head, or the heart or the hands - often to the exclusion of other expressions. But by linking our intellect and emotions and actions, Hollinger points us toward a whole faith for the whole person, where each dimension feeds, nurtures and sustains the others.
