Your mind has a mission.

Sometimes it might seem like Christians just want your body—to serve or go. Or it might seem like they just want your heart—to emote in worship or commit to a cause. But that's not all. God invites us to love him with our minds as well. Being holistic, global Christians means that we need to think well about the world around us.

Greg Jao roots our pursuit of the discipleship of the mind in our allegiance to and love for Jesus. Because Jesus is Lord of all, our intellectual engagement is a way we can bring all things under Christ. Jao addresses common myths that result in a passive engagement of our intellect with our faith. He provides key disciplines for Christian discipleship of the mind, how we can love God with our minds in community, obedience and humility.

With practical application and formational activities throughout, this guide offers concrete ways to integrate the life of the mind into a life of mission and ministry. The Christian mind is a missional mind. Discover how you can use your mind to extend the glory of God throughout the world.

Includes questions for group discussion.

"Greg Jao is legendary as a lover of students and a lover of books. For Christ's glory, he has long encouraged students to read widely, to think deeply, to hone their minds so that they might understand God's Word and world and serve well. He's also a wonderful writer, and now, in this great little book, he has given us exactly what every student needs: a quick and easy-to-read guide that makes the case for a missional mind, 'thinking Christianly' and honoring Christ as king in every career and calling, across every zone of life. Greg is the perfect author for this nearly perfect book."
