Book Review: Think

Think: The Life of the Mind and the Love of GodThink: The Life of the Mind and the Love of God by John Piper
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A great book for any Christian to work through. Pastor Piper effectively combats both laziness in thinking and pride in thinking. The book pushed me to work harder at thinking as I read and write. His chapter on the connection between faith and thinking was a bit weak. He seemed to be saying that you must be able to think to have faith. Still the book was superb and has already changed the way I study. As usual, Pastor Piper aims for our affections. He wants thinking to be an expression of our love for God and love for men.

Let the saints be joyful in glory, let them sing aloud on their beds, let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a two edged sword in their hand, to execute vengeance on the nations, and punishments on the peoples; to bind the kings with chains and their nobles with fetters of iron. Psalm 149:5-8
