Thinking Christianly: Bringing Sundry Thoughts Captive to Christ (Paperback)
"For the weapons of our warfare are not of flesh but have divine power to destroy strong-holds. We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ" (2 Corinthians 10:4-5). Life in Western civilization is rapidly changing. In such a cultural landscape, it can be overwhelming for Christians to find the bearings. How should they think about same-sex "marriage"? Or transgenderism and the concept of "preferred personal pronouns"? Or the ever-confounding topic of racism? Or technology and transhumanism? How should Christians think about their involvement on social media? Or their consumption of entertainment? And does their Christianity have anything to do with these matters at all? In Thinking Christianly, Samuel Parkison demonstrates an exercise in obedience to 2 Corinthians 10:4-5; he labors to bring sundry thoughts captive to Christ. Sacred cows are not spared in this collection of short essays. Parkison is concerned with showing how Christ's lordship applies to how Christians thinking about everything, including the many perplexing and novel issues Christians face today.
