The apostle Paul calls us to "take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ" (2 Cor 10:5). But James Emery White (Serious Times: Making Your Life Matter in an Urgent Day
) fears that Western Christians are failing in this task. Because we have not developed good intellectual habits, our minds instead have been captured by our culture.A Mind for God
is written to help us break free from this cultural captivity through the spiritual and intellectual disciplines of reading, study and reflection. This inspirational and practical "rule for the mind" encourages and enables us to develop our minds for God.
