Called to the Life of the Mind PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Called to the Life of the Mind free pdf I wasn t supposed to spend my life in the world of scholarship, Richard Mouw acknowledges at the beginning of "Called to the Life of the Mind." Yet he has indeed spent his career in the academy -- and has become one of the most widely respected evangelical Christian scholars of our time. In this wise little book Mouw defends Christian scholarship as an important and legitimate endeavor, responding in particular to those traditions that continue to be suspicious of intellectual pursuits. Writing in an inviting, conversational style, Mouw reflects candidly on the faithful Christian cultivation of the life of the mind and offers gentle advice on how Christians, especially evangelicals, might fruitfully navigate the world of the academy as followers of Jesus. "
