Several months ago I learned that John Piper would be writing a book on the importance of the life of the mind in loving and worshiping God, and since then I've eagerly awaited that book's release. I first heard Piper speak on this issue around seven years ago, and his emphasis on the head and the heart engaging in true worship has been a great passion of mine.
Last week, the book came out: Think -- The Life of the Mind and the Love of God is available for 45% off the cover price this week at Westminster books. Here's a synopsis of the book from the back cover:
We often pit thinking and feeling against each other, especially when it comes to the Christian experience. Glorifying God with our minds and hearts, however, is not either-or, but both-and. Focusing on the life of the mind will help you to know God better, love Him more, and care for the world. This book will help you think about thinking, and about how the heart and mind glorify God together.
Throughout the week I'll be posting some quotes from the book.
