Book Description

Jan. 15 1990
Christians who are serious about their faith want to love God with all that they are -- heart and mind and strength. Books abound on the devotional life, on commitment, on evangelism and practical Christian living, but few take up what it means to love God with our minds. How do we learn to honor God in the ways we think? James Sire blazes a trail for Christians concerned about the discipleship of our minds. After looking at the attitudes toward God and ourselves necessary for the journey, he introduces us to the basics of the Christian world view. Separate chapters discuss the foundations of knowledge and the relationship between knowing and doing. With an eye to the practical, Sire offers specific suggestions on getting to know what is good and getting to know the world. He also provides valuable insights on how Christians might approach various academic disciplines as disciples of Christ. Here is a book for all who desire to love God with their minds.

4.0 out of 5 stars Poor little lambs, have you lost your way? Aug. 24 2001
Format:Paperback
"You are all sheep." With that opening sentence, one can't help but be drawn in to this perplexing and often profound book on Learning To Love God In The Way We Think. Sire recommends beating your head against the wall, taking prozac, and watching wrestling, Jerry Springer and all the bad sitcoms on TV. Once your IQ has been sufficiently diminished, you are now ready to Love God In The Way You Think. Remember, "you are all sheep." BAA!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent and Relevant Sept. 28 2000
Format:Paperback
Sire has succeeded again. His other popular work, The Universe Next Door, is an intelligent catalogue of worldviews. This work, a look at what it takes to have an intelligent belief in the modern world, is marvelous.
Sire's ideas of Christianity are excellent, taking it as a religion of the intelligent rather than the anti-intellectual. Christians too often misrepresent Christianity as a shallow and mindless religion of vague feelings, with no real relevance to modernity. Sire seeks to combat this at the college level. College is the time of making or breaking a faith, whatever it may be, because it will be sorely tested. Now, many Christians are destroyed, or rather, destroy themselves coming into an intellectual community with real and intelligent objections, and no answers. No justification for a belief is almost the same as a non-belief: there isn't much there that is understand or communicable, and so what belief is there?
Sire, admirable, combats this problem with an exploration of the necessity of education in Christianity.
However, that aside, the real reason I value this book so highly is its view on education in general. Going against what C.S. Lewis called "a nationally suicidal form of education", so prevalent in america, Sire lays out the necessities of a true education.
This education is not so compartmentalized and career-based as we often would think. It is liberal, broad, and challenging. Sire's education raises students rather than chopping off their heads to make them "like everyone else."
A must!!!
