Your Mind Matters: The Place of the Mind in the Christian Life

Your Mind Matters: The Place of the Mind in the Christian Life

$10.99

Paperback
"Knowledge is indispensable to Christian life and service," writes John Stott. "If we do not use the mind which God has given us, we condemn ourselves to spiritual superficiality."

While Christians have had a long heritage of rigorous scholarship and careful thinking, some circles still view the intellect with suspicion or even as contradictory to Christian faith. And many non-Christians are quick to label Christians as anti-intellectual and obscurantist. But this need not be so.

In this classic introduction to Christian thinking, John Stott makes a forceful appeal for Christian discipleship that engages the mind as well as the heart.

Essential Reading for Spiritual Growth
5 stars By Julz, Sep 29 2017
In this concise book, John Stott elaborates on the importance of our mind in our Christian life. This book is very much needed as there are two extremes in Christianity, one that completely disregards the mind, and one thinks that mind is everything. Stott starts by quoting Romans 10:2 and argues that God is not pleased with zeal without knowledge. He then expounds on why we need to use our mind, and the place of our mind in our spiritual growth. Greatly recommended for those who wants to grow spiritually.
