Welcome to the new blog of thinkChristianly. One of the main areas I want to explore is what does it mean to think well and think as a Christian (contrary to popular opinion, these are not mutually exclusive). Professor of Philosophy at Wheaton College Jay Wood provides us a good place to start:
“Your intellectual life is important…for the simple reason that your very character, the kind of person you are and are becoming, is at stake. Careful oversight of our intellectual lives is imperative if we are to think well, and thinking well is an indispensable ingredient to living well.”
What we believe in large part determines how we live--how we order our lives and what we value. We can't not think. The question is, will we think well? And if we claim the name of Christ, will we think Christianly?
