Availability: Ready to download

Our world is alive with fascinating new ideas, discoveries, and technologies. But for Christians this can also present problems-especially when the values of postmodernism and secular university life conflict with basic Christian principles. What should Christians do when their beliefs come under attack in the classroom or the public square? Loving God with All Your Mind sh Our world is alive with fascinating new ideas, discoveries, and technologies. But for Christians this can also present problems-especially when the values of postmodernism and secular university life conflict with basic Christian principles. What should Christians do when their beliefs come under attack in the classroom or the public square? Loving God with All Your Mind shows us that the answer is neither wholesale rejection of intellectual life and culture, nor blind acceptance of it. The answer lies in understanding that Jesus is Lord of all of life and that everything in life must be carefully viewed in the light of what Christ's lordship means. Gene Edward Veith unfolds a dazzling critique of the postmodern intellectual world and culture. He affirms the part that is good and true, but he also shows crucial weaknesses that have such a hold over contemporary thought. This book shows Christians how to survive and flourish in a postmodern world while affirming the truth of the Christian faith.

    This book manages to challenge and provoke thought but to do so in a positive and encouraging way. It equips the Christian to be skeptical of the culture's intellectual climate, and, at the same time, to engage with its errors in a compelling and upbeat way – as in the process of challenging error and heresy Christ is glorified.

    Great book especially for students going through secular education and trying to develope a christian worldview. Veith deals with false assumptions and accusations commonly thrown against christians and shows how having a Biblical worldview is the basis for all learning.

    Awesome book. Not a point for point apologetic work, but more of a comprehensive framework for the Christian's approach to academics and learning. I'd love to know what he wrote in '87 and what he wrote in '03. It seems as though Veith has had just the right thing that Christians need to hear at this time and place all along. If he's had it since '03 it would be impressive enough. If he's had it since '87.... Awesome book.

    An accessible introductory analysis of the use of the Christian mind. It would be a great place for high school students to begin their encounter with the secular world in college.

    Gene Veith is one of my favorite modern Christian authors - a voice of truth and reason in the mad world of post-modernity. He always renews my hope and belief that Christianity WILL survive the modern world, and spurs me on to do more of what God has called me to do. This title in particular focuses on the world of academia, and how contrary to popular cynicism, Christianity actually provides a unique advantage to anyone seeking true knowledge and understanding.

    The basic premise of this book is that Daniel became excellent in Babylonian culture and literature and God used this to further His name. Veith equates this with "secular" wisdom, stating that our privilege and responsibility as Christians is to pursue intellectual excellence in every area of life for the glory of Christ. It inspired me to be a better thinker. The basic premise of this book is that Daniel became excellent in Babylonian culture and literature and God used this to further His name.

    recommended reading for all Jr. and Sr. high school students and their parents as they begin their search for college years. Very Good advice and information about how Christians need approach the subject of higher education.

    I especially liked the exploration of Daniel, the reliance throughout on G. K Chesterton (who was brilliant), the penultimate chapter, and, of course, the lines from Yeat's "Second Coming" from the conclusion.
