5.0 out of 5 stars Deserves to be Widely Read
Piper has done it again - a remarkably thorough yet also concise treatment of a very important subject. He shows that in order to be faithful to the call of God on our lives, we must seek to honour and love Him with all of our minds, as well as our hearts, souls and strength.

Although I found the book a little wordy at times, one cannot fail to understand and...

2.0 out of 5 stars A disappointing read
In Think John Piper sets out to "help Christians think about thinking". Piper successfully ties together thinking earnestly about God and treasuring and loving him, arguing that the mind and the heart are inextricably linked when it comes to worship, studying the Bible and how we treat others.

However, Piper has a tendency throughout the book to get caught up...

Piper has done it again - a remarkably thorough yet also concise treatment of a very important subject. He shows that in order to be faithful to the call of God on our lives, we must seek to honour and love Him with all of our minds, as well as our hearts, souls and strength.

Although I found the book a little wordy at times, one cannot fail to understand and see Piper's heart that we, as the Church, recover rigorous intellectual life that honours Christ in every way.

Buy it, read it and give it away to friends for the glory of Christ.

5.0 out of 5 stars Reason on fire!, 5 July 2011

This review is from: Think (Paperback)
I expected no less from John Piper! A well reasoned and impassioned plea for us to recognise that love and reason can not only co-exsist but, in the words of Thomas Goodwin, "are the mutual cause of each other". This really is a must read!

As Piper states in the opening chapter many books have now been written on the Evangelical mind, so why read this one? If you are looking for a book that is not based on the social and cultural summons to think (and don't get me wrong these books are very important) but upon biblical commands to use our minds to the glory of God then read this book.

2.0 out of 5 stars A disappointing read, 11 Jun 2011
This review is from: Think (Paperback)
In Think John Piper sets out to "help Christians think about thinking". Piper successfully ties together thinking earnestly about God and treasuring and loving him, arguing that the mind and the heart are inextricably linked when it comes to worship, studying the Bible and how we treat others.

However, Piper has a tendency throughout the book to get caught up in stale agendas and arguments to combat what he sees as the rise of relativism both within Christianity and society in general. He thus devotes two entire chapters to the subject of relativism, which could have been better used to write positively about the rise of scholarship within the Christian community in the past few decades.
