Stott argues that Knowledge is essential for faith and that we should invest in our understanding of God, so that we can love God deeper Knowledge is a means to an end, the end of a greater relationship with the Creator He helpfully warns against the dangers of Anti intellectualism, but also reflects on how hyper intellectualism is just as problematic.One should let their knowledge of God drive their love of him and others Not letting it puff them up, void of action.I would give this book Stott argues that Knowledge is essential for faith and that we should invest in our understanding of God, so that we can love God deeper Knowledge is a means to an end, the end of a greater relationship with the Creator He helpfully warns against the dangers of Anti intellectualism, but also reflects on how hyper intellectualism is just as problematic.One should let their knowledge of God drive their love of him and others Not letting it puff them up, void of action.I would give this book a 4.5 5, but I think it is5 than 4, thus I give it a 5.I am still wrestling with the accuracy of the the idea that Stott writes, thattime should be spent of learning than on ministering, he expresses this in

A classic, by one of the foremost thinkers and preachers of the Gospel Short and quick read, arguing very poignantly the vital importance of the thinking mind to the Christian not about secular things or things of this world but matters of the Christian doctrine.
