Format: Paperback
"How is is possible for a person to be an active member of an evangelical church for twenty or thirty years and still know next to nothing about the history and theology of the Christian religion, the methods and tools required for serious Bible study, and the skills and information necessary to preach and defend Christianity in a post-Christian, neopagan culture?"
This question captures the essense of this readable and profound book. In it J. P. Moreland explores the intellectual life of the Church; the history of intellectualism (or lack thereof) in the Church; and the scriptural basis for why it's important for Christians to develop healthy, active, critical-thinking minds. And he offers some challenging and intriguing ideas for renewing the intellectual life of the Church (No senior pastors!!??).
As an active member of an evangelical church for close to twenty years who has much to learn about the history and theology of the Christian religion, J. P. Moreland's book has challenged me to spend more time studying God's Word and mastering the evidences for my faith so that I can be a more effective witness for Jesus Christ. This book has encouraged me to love God with all my mind (Mark 12:30).
This is an important, convicting, and helpful book for any Christian who sincerely desires to grow in their relationship with our Lord and Savior.

I cannot recommend this book highly enough. It draws attention to the need for intellectual development as an aspect of spiritual formation. It does not ignore the heart, but Moreland reminds readers that the Biblical conception of the heart (as the core of a person) includes the mind. This is valuable reading for anyone, but it is particularly useful for college students. The reading list of "Sources for Integration" alone is well worth the price of the book. J.P. Moreland is an important figure in the growing movement of Christian leaders who are both intellectual and firmly orthodox. This book was edited by Dallas Willard (former head of the philosophy department at USC) and is highly recommended by Phillip Johnson (Darwin on Trial) and Josh McDowell.

While I applaud Moreland's attempt to address the dearth of intellectualism in the evangelical movement, the book's rather decided right wing political bias largely discredits the attempt to promote true Christian intellectualism. By addressing the issue of intellectualism Moreland takes a courageous single step in the right direction but by burdening the work with shallow secular politics the overall effect is to push evangelical Christianity two steps back. If you are looking for a more insightful approach to this issue you might try Noll's "Scandal of the Evangelical Mind" or any of the works by Richard Foster.

Format: Paperback
Moreland sounds a wakeup call for the church to remember its scholarly heritage, and to shed the anti-intellectual attitude often present in the church. He begins with the biblical basis for developing a strong Christian mind, and for having a reasoned response when asked why we believe. Moreland then provides practical insights on ways for individuals to develop an understanding of apologetics and to gain a Christian perspective on one's vocation, and for churches to change to address these needs. I found the book to be very challenging, and I highly recommend it.

Format: Paperback
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.

As many of the other reviewers have said, this book presents a much needed call for bringing the faculties of reason, thought, and analysis to the Christian faith. Moreland makes many good points, and I believe his message is important enough that I will require my students to read this book in one of my college classes this fall. My reason for rating the book an 8 is that it seems too much like a rough draft, with sometimes less-than-clear writing and less-than-optimum organization. As bumpy as the reading is, it bears going through, perhaps twice. The back has a very valuable section providing references and contacts (books, organizations, etc.) useful for further study.
