Description or summary of the book: What is an intellectual? How can you learn to think well? What does it mean to love God with your mind? Can the intellectual life be a legitimateChristian calling? Is the intellectual life your calling? James Sire brings wit and wisdom to bear on these questions and their possible answers. And he offers an unusual 'insider's view' of learning how to think well for the glory of God and for the sake of his kingdom. InHabits of the Mind Sire challenges you to avoid one of the greatest pitfalls of intellectual life-by resisting the temptation to separate being from knowing. He shows you how to cultivate intellectual virtues and disciplines-habits of mind-that will strengthen you in pursuit of your calling. And he offers assurance that intellectual life can be a true calling for Christians: because Jesus was the smartest man who ever lived, Sire argues, you can and should accept the challenge to think as well as you are able.
