Product Description

Devastation. That is the effect of excessive, singular focus on only one part of a fully orbed Christian life. God wants complete men and women committed to Christ, thinking and living in His Kingdom. Beginning with Jesus, moving through solid thought about key truths, then into how this leads people (you) to live it out – finally returning again to Christ Himself – Think and Live has and offers a way out of devastation, and a way into Love of God and others.

Think About Life and Live5
William Jennings Bryan, Secretary of State of the U.S., was interviewing a man who was seeking a diplomatic position to China. Bryan warned the candidate that it was necessary to qualify as a linguist of Chinese. “Can you speak the Chinese language?” Bryan asked.
The man was up to the occasion. Looking Secretary Bryan in the eye, he responded, “Try me. Ask me something in Chinese.” Bryan, confounded for he also did not know Chinese, could not counter the candidates question. And in “Think and Live: Challenging Believers to Think and Thinkers to Believe” editor Paul Hughes provides the reader a resource to understand and speak the language required to advance Christian truth. The contributors provide much to ponder as they teach the reader how to think as well as communicate biblically and effectively.

In “Think and Live” the contributors discuss:

– The importance of the use of Logic (pp. 47-58)
– Essential elements of apologetics (p. 59)
– Faith within worldviews (pp. 60-61)
– Understanding the significant difference between science & Scientism (p. 65)
– The meaning of Virtue and the necessity of Love
– Faith has its reasons (p. 60)
– Practical applications of apologetics (pp. 75-84)
– And much more.

This very helpful and breezy volume is littered with numerous quotes from C.S. Lewis, G.K. Chesterton, George MacDonald, C.T. Studd, John Calvin, and other notable figures. Chapters touch on miracles, the problem of evil, morality, the Messiahship of Jesus, and a short introduction concerning apologetic methods. “Think” points out the strengths of apologetic methods as well as their perceived weaknesses. On the apparent weakness of Presuppositional Apologetics the book opines more harshly toward Presuppositional Apologetics than the other methods discussed: “The downside [of the Presuppositional Apologetic method] is that “it falls more easily to soft postmodernism.” But “not all who practice this method [Presuppositional Apologetics] go this far, but there is a danger” (p. 81). And he adds the off-putting comment “yes, there are some friendly presuppositionalists” (p. 81).

Additionally this work touches on some very useful subjects including:

– Origins
– Meaning
– Identity
– Morality
– Destiny.

The outstanding scholar Craig Hazen writes the Forward and “Think and Live” is endorsed by many fine scholars; it’s so upbeat and readable that I recommend it for students and non-scholars.
