Overview

Love Your God with All Your Mind: The Role of Reason in the Life of the Soul 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 and reason to further God’s kingdom through evangelism, apologetics, worship, and vocation.

This revised edition includes expanded appendixes and three new chapters that outline how to reason for the reality of God and the historicity of Jesus’ life teachings, death, and resurrection.

This book is just as good as Bill Craig's On Guard except its focused on developing the christian mind and the role it plays in the life of the believer rather just just apologetic.

This is an excellent examination of the decline of "Christian thinking" over the last century. Moreland addresses why Christian paradigms have weakened, why church growth has paradoxically overshadowed it's inluence, and why it has proven detrimental and even dangerous for the corporate church body. I must read for Christian thinkers.
