As Christians we are to love God with all of our being - heart, mind, soul and strength. But many of us tend to overemphasize one aspect or another, and as a result our faith becomes imbalanced. Some of us have an intellectual faith but lack compassion or spiritual discipline. Others of us have a vibrant, heartfelt relationship with God but lack commitment to truth or doctrine. And many of us overlook translating our faith into service and ministry. In this book ethicist Dennis P. Hollinger presents a holistic, integrative vision for reuniting Christian thought, passion and action. He show how individuals, churches and movements throughout history have focused on either the head, or the heart or the hands - often to the exclusion of other expression. But by linking our intellect and emotions and actions, Hollinger points us toward a whole faith for the whole person, where each dimension feeds, nurtures and sustains the others.

Victor Hugo said "There's nothing bigger than an idea who's time has come". That applies appropriately to this book. It is insightful in knowing how to 'strategize' in the warfare against powers and principalities, not pitting people or organizations as our foes. As a 'fighting body' our Hear, Mind, and Actions is like the WWII squad that was surrounded by the Nazi's; scout's returned to tell them they were. The company commander said to the troops "Men, we've got the enemy right wehere we want them, we can attack in all directions; CHARGE!They won that battle; together we can win ours.
