Called to the Life of the Mind
Some Advice for Evangelical Scholars
by Richard J. Mouw
"Much to be welcomed are these wise words from a wise man about the Christian stake in wisdom."—Mark A. Noll, University of Notre Dame
A personal, conversational discussion encouraging Christian scholarship from one of the most widely respected evangelical Christian scholars of our time.
"Evangelical scholars should see their work as a contribution to the well-being of the Body of Christ, and their fellow Christians should celebrate the difficult—and often, of necessity, lonely—work of God-honoring scholarship."
"Every evangelical scholar will benefit from reading these essays based on a life of leadership in the evangelical academy." – Read what Roger Olson and other scholars are saying about Mouw's new book.
Richard J. Mouw
"Not everyone in the Christian community needs to be seriously involved in intellectual pursuits. But it is important—crucially so—that the Christian community have some people who are cultivating the intellectual disciplines."
Mouw’s book is a winner. But it's not only for a pastor or that person who just loves to talk theology but can’t find many takers. Christians who like to think can be an isolated crowd. But there’s always room for one more.
