Summary

While Christians have had a long heritage of rigorous scholarship and careful thinking, some circles still view the intellect with suspicion or even as contradictory to Christian faith. And many non-Christians are quick to label Christians as anti-intellectual and obscurantist. But this need not be so. In this classic introduction to Christian thinking, John Stott makes a forceful appeal for Christian discipleship that engages the mind as well as the heart.

Faith Without Knowledge is Shaky

Battling evil occurs in the mind. Knowledge of the Holy Spirit's grace for self-control, forbearance, and faithfulness comes to one through reading and practicing scripture. One's mind matters, greatly. Equip it with knowledge to become the best Christian possible. Faith without a strong knowledge base is shaky. Faith is strongest when truth is at its core. Paraphrasing Jesus Christ, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one gets to the Father except through me."

How can anyone believe simple statements. Without pursuing such profound claims faith is shallow. John Stott teaches that the rebirth of a Christian suggests a study of God's word and an awareness of the universe. His word is authentic in revealing His authority over all creation. More importantly, the need to deepen knowledge enriches the mind to the glory and magnificence of God which fills one with a zeal to share God's word.

Very good content

The narration is cristal clear.
Remarkable quotes:
Faith is not optimism
Concern is the lack of thinking
The Bible can be revealed in different ways, to different people
