Love Your God With All Your Mind

J. P Moreland

Introduction by Dallas Willard

The Christian and the Well Formed Mind by David Hazard

p15 Nice 2pg defense of a disciplining the mind.

1. How we lost the Christian mind and why we must recover it

p22 Loss of mind in American Christianity

p23 George Marsden, historian "anti-intellectualism was a feature of American revivalism" mid 1800s

p23 "Burned Over District" of New York birthed Mormonism(1830) and Jehovah's Witness(1884)

p23 Discusses evangelical withdrawal of late 1800s, David Hume (1711-1776) and Immanuel Kant (1724-1804).

p24 German higher criticism led to reaction against historical study of Bible and scholarship, then Darwinian evolution and the fundamentalist withdrawal.

p27 Discussion of "privatization" of religion

p28 Few Christian intellectuals writing university level material

p28 Quotes Carl Henry "Training the mind is an essential responsibility of the home, the church, and the school. Unless evangelicals prod young people to disciplined thinking, they waste - even undermine one of Christianity's most precious resources."

p28 His response "But if faith and reason are polar opposites, and if discipleship is private and sacred but college studies are public and secular, then training the intellect will not be valued as a part of teenage mentoring. That is why our discipleship materials often leave Christian young people vulnerable to atheistic college professors with an ax to grind. For such professors, shredding an intellectually unprepared undergraduate's faith is like shooting fish in a barrel."

p29 Fairly shocking section about North American missionaries contributing by default to Marxist-leaning groups.
