Love Your God With All Your Mind (15th anniversary repack): The Role of Reason in the Life of the Soul (Paperback)
By J.P. Moreland
We know that faith means "being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see" (Hebrews 11:1, NIV).
"Love Your God With All Your Mind" explains the importance of using your mind not only to win others to Christ but also to experience personal spiritual growth. Author J.P. Moreland challenges you to use logic to further GodÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ__ÌÎÌ_Ì´åÇÌÎå«Ì´Ìàs kingdom through evangelism, apologetics, worship and vocation.
This revised edition includes expanded appendices and three new chapters that outline how to argue for the reality of God and the historicity of JesusÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ__ÌÎÌ_Ì´åÇÌÎå«Ì´Ìàs life teachings, death and resurrection.
ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ__ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎå«Ì´åÇAs a long-time Christian philosopher and apologist, when I read the first edition of this book, I was thrilled because the author, one of the most important and astute Christian philosophers of our day, developed a thorough, readable, deeply challenging spirituality of the sanctified intellect. More than that, I have used this modern classic as a textbook in many classes for many years, and I often recommend it as a tonic to the anti-intellectualism and fideism that sadly plagues much of Evangelicalism in the United States.

ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ__ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎå«Ì´åÇFirst, like the apologist, philosopher, evangelist, and social critic and activist, Francis Schaeffer (1912-84), Moreland has a passion for the living God, for truth, for pertinent communication to our generation, for people, and for the objective truth of the Bible. ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ__ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ__ While Moreland, like Schaeffer, has the spiritual gift of evangelism, he is, unlike Schaeffer, a professional philosopher of the highest caliber, having written a voluminous corpus of work in the philosophy of religion, ethics, metaphysics, philosophy of science, and more. ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ__ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ__ and unlike most philosophers, Moreland has also written articles and books for the popular audience. ...
ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ__ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎå«Ì´åÇSecond, ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ__ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎå«Ì´åÇLove Your God With All Your MindÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ__ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ_Ì´å« is peppered with real-life examples from MorelandÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ__ÌÎÌ_Ì´åÇÌÎå«Ì´Ìàs impressive ministry experience of over forty years. ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ__ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ__ Before becoming a full-time academic, Moreland planted two churches and worked with Campus Crusade. ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ__ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ__ This challenges the reader to not only develop a Christian mind, but to faithfully apply it to all of culture under the Lordship of Jesus Christ.
ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ__ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎå«Ì´åÇThird, while intellectually fertile on a theoretical level, the book is replete with specific examples and exhortations on how to cultivate the life of the mind for the cause of Christ. ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ__ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ__ Moreland also offers sagacious advice concerning adult education in the church, preaching, and outreach. ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ__ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ__
ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ__ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎå«Ì´åÇA short review cannot do justice to a book long on knowledge, reason, wisdom, and passion for the Kingdom of God. Therefore, read itÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ__ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ_ÌÎÌ¥and reread it. Then apply it for the glory of God.ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ__ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ_Ì´å« ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ__ÌÎÌ_Ì´åÇÌÎå«Ì´å Douglas R.
