The Christian life is more than thinking—but not less. And it’s more than feeling—but not less. It’s more than doing as well—but never less. Healthy followers of Jesus engage their minds, hearts, and hands in glorifying him.
This volume, built on the 2010 Desiring God National Conference and John Piper’s recent book Think: The Life of the Mind and the Love of God argues that thinking and the affections of the heart are inseparable. Our emotions fuel our thoughts for God. Likewise, hard thinking about God leads to deeper joy in our relationship with him. And both, in turn, help us focus outward as we express a greater love for others.
Contributions by Rick Warren, Francis Chan, John Piper, R. Albert Mohler Jr., R. C. Sproul, and Thabiti Anyabwile bring a wealth of perspective and experience in calling for readers to love God and others with heart and mind and hands.
