From Gordon McDonald’s “Ordering You Private World “

Harry Blamires, in an insightful book called The Christian Mind, asks where there are Christians with minds sharp enough to confront a culture that steadily drifts away from God. He calls for people who think “Christianly”about great moral issues. His fear, which I share, is that we fool ourselves into thinking that we are thinking people when we are not. With a stinging rebuke against the Christian public, he wrote: “Christianity is emasculated of its intellectual relevance. It remains a vehicle of spirituality and moral guidance at the individual level perhaps; at the communal level it is little more than an expression of sentimentalized togetherness.”
