J.P. Moreland is the noted Christian philosopher who defeated Kai Nielsen in their famous debate. Moreland wrote this book in response to the anti-intellectualism manifested in our many churches. He sets out a detailed program for recapturing the "life of the mind" for Christ. Timely.

J.P. Moreland is that rare individual who is both a bright philosopher and a spiritually powerful Christian. If heeded, the message of his latest book will transform the mind and character of our culture into the image of Christ. Must reading for every person who knows Jesus to be the Christ.

This is a great book, but it could be greatly simplified, I feel, and therefore, be more effective in this age of mindless adults dumbed down by a worthless public education and university system. Also, his political viewpoint, which rejects out of hand the use of God's laws and moral commands when it comes to government, shows that he is over his head when it comes to this topic. He needs to read more in this area. He might start with Gary DeMar's "The Ruler of the Nations." Then, read the last section of Calvin's "Institutes," followed by a closer study of biblical texts such as Romans 13, 1 Samuel 8 and the Book of Proverbs.

Very thought-provoking and challenging. Compelling arguments why Christians ought to know more about their faith and learn to defend it better than they currently do.

This is a disturbing book. While I found much of it enlightening with points well-argued, it portrays a cold-hearted Christianity; an army of defenders and apologetics who have little of the "impractical" compassion that we need if we are to bring the spirit of Christ into our world. I prefer the kinder, gentler treatment of this subject by authors like Richard Foster, Philip Yancey, Dallas Willard, who I think better understand the integration of reason and compassion in a life of faith.
