Produktbeschreibung
David Gill's writing of The Opening of the Christian Mind (1989) was prodded by the bestseller The Closing of the American Mind (1987) by cultural critic Allan Bloom. There should be no ""closed minds"" among the followers of Jesus Christ, insisted Gill, a Cal Berkeley grad of the late sixties with a PhD from the University of Southern California. But far from being reactive, Opening is a positive manifesto and guidebook for ""thinking Christianly,"" for developing authentic Christian minds, not just in the academy but the workplace, not just in pursuit of truth but of love and justice. Gill explores six characteristics of a Christian mind, its applications to study and work, and the curricula and strategy to achieve it.
