Summary

By establishing central themes of the Westrs"s Christianinheritance as the basis of the intellectual life, Green shows thatany recovery of the life of the mind depends on a recovery of thegospel.History demonstrates that wherever the cross is planted, theacademy follows. But history alone cannot demonstrate why thisis-and must be-the case. Green engages theology andphilosophy to prove that the Christian vision of God, mankind, andthe world provides the necessary precondition for and enduringfoundation of meaningful intellectual life.The Gospel and the Mind , deeply rooted in Augustinianand Reformed thought, shows that core principles of theWestrs"s Christian inheritance-such as creation and theimportance of history, the centrality of a telos to allthings, and the logos and the value of words-formthe matrix of any promising and sustainable intellectual life.More than a lament of the state of the evangelical mind or evenan argument for the primacy of a Christian worldview, TheGospel and the Mind is a paradigm-shifting declaration thatthe life of the mind starts at the cross.
