Books new and old that have caught my eye.
Think: The Life of the Mind and the Word of God
By John Piper
“The American people and the American church have a long history of anti-intellectualism. When you think of how God-dishonoring much intellectual life has been, this is understandable. But it has not served us well. When the faithful, rigorous life of the mind is diminished, the spiritual benefits don’t last much longer than a generation. The very thing we wanted to protect is eventually weakened. The Great Commandment is to love God with everything in us, including our minds (Matthew 22:37). When that means of love is marginalized, love for God weakens.”
