Think: The Life of the Mind and the Love of God
by Aleathea Dupree | Genre: Christian Living
Release Date: March 2011
 

John Piper offers a pastor''s perspective on the life of the mind in his challenge to the church to think hard for the glory of God.

This 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.

The Attempt to Make a Christian Think | Posted November 01, 2013

This is a very good read.  My favourite quote was "Loving God with all our mind means that our thinking is wholly engaged to do all it can to awaken and express the heartfelt fullness of treasuring God above all things.” This book has left me questioning and challenging myself to change to be one that truly treasures God above all else.
