“Anti-intellectualism is a disposition to discount the importance of truth and the life of the mind. Living in a sensuous culture and an increasingly emotional democracy, American evangelicals in the last generation have simultaneously toned up their bodies and dumbed down their minds. The result? Many suffer from a modern form of what the ancient stoics called “mental hedonism”-having fit bodies but fat minds.” – Os Guinness
Elsewhere, Guinness has said much on the theme that Christians have not been out-thought. Rather, they have not been around when the thinking was being done. We can change that. Simply reading (beyond novels and self-help), thinking well, and talking with others can show the Christian worldview to be far more than just blind faith.
