The Christian Mind: How Should a Christian Think?
Harry Blamires (Author)
DescriptionIn this now classic book, noted scholar and author Harry Blamires perceptively diagnoses some of the weaknesses besetting the church with insights as fresh and relevant today as they were in the 1960s. Arguing that a distinctively Christian reasoning has been swept away by secular modes of thought and politically correct assumptions, the author calls for the recovery of the authentically Christian mind. "America needs a shot of intellectual insulin directly to its oft-sleepy mind. Harry Blamires is calling out to Christians to think once again. To Blamires, Jesus is not some spongy source of giddy joy. He is the Christ-the hope of 'hard boiled' secularity." -Calvin Miller, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary "Must reading for those in places of spiritual leadership, and in whose hands in borne the responsibility for the nurturing of Christians." -Pulpit Helps Harry Blamires is a highly respected teacher and author of more than thirty books. He has won a wide following of both British and American readers for his provocative works in theology, education, English literature, and fiction. His other works include Where Do We Stand?, On Christian Truth, and The Post-Christian Mind.

About the Author
Harry Blamires is one of America's best-known English authors; his educational, theological, and fictional works have brought him acclaim in all three fields, both in the USA and England. People who run after human gods of current fashion find him irksome because he insists on the value and necessity of obedience, loyalty, integrity, authority, and honesty, and above all of being Christian--really Christian. Like prophets of old, he cries out against much that passes for Christianity today. He never fails to get to the heart of things, and always has something forceful to say--if only to frighten his readers closer to God. Harry Blamires is the former Dean of Arts and Sciences at King Alfred's College, Winchester.
