The Christian Mind: How Should a Christian Think?
Date: October 2011
Duration: 5 hours 59 minutes
A now-classic book with insights as fresh and relevant today as they were in the 1960s.
Harry Blamires, a noted British Christian thinker who started writing through the encouragement of C. S. Lewis, his tutor at Oxford, makes a perceptive diagnosis of some of the weaknesses besetting the church today. He argues that the distinctively Christian intellect is being swept away by secular modes of thought and secular assumptions about reality. Blamires calls for the recovery of the Christian mind and challenges "not only secularism's assault upon personal morality and the life of the soul, but also secularism's truncated and perverted view of the meaning of life and the purpose of the social order."
Praise for The Post-Christian Mind: "Blamires was a student of C. S. Lewis, and like his mentor, his highly readable arguments are spiced with memorable anecdotes and built on a firm foundation of common sense…Blamires gracefully delivers his thesis with wit and logic."—Publishers Weekly
