Day #4
This pair of books is meant to encourage sound thinking as a staple of the Christian life.

Think: The Life of the Mind and the Love of God by John Piper
This is a very solid book by John Piper on the relationship between loving God and our thinking and reasoning. "Do you ever wish you could feel more deeply about things you know are true? Has it been a while since you were moved to tears at the thought of Christ’s death for your sins? It’s not mysterious: those who feel deeply about the gospel are those who think deeply about the gospel. In these pages John Piper will convince you that thinking is the sturdy foundation for our easily misguided affections. If you want to feel profoundly, learn to think carefully. And start by reading this book!" - C. J. Mahaney, Sovereign Grace Ministries



The Christian Mind: How Should a Christian Think?
"In this now classic book, noted scholar and author Harry Blamires perceptively diagnoses some of the weaknesses besetting the church with insights as fresh and relevant today as they were in the 1960s. Arguing that a distinctively Christian reasoning has been swept away by secular modes of thought and politically correct assumptions, the author calls for the recovery of the authentically Christian mind."
