John Piper’s new book is entitled Think: The Life of the Mind and the Love of God. It ships next week from Amazon, but is already available as a Kindle Book and Desiring God has them in stock.

Check out Crossway’s new way of previewing books below (though you can still download it as a PDF as well). You can virtually flip through the foreword by Mark Noll, the table of contents, the introduction, and the first chapter.

Here’s a one-minute explanation from Piper about what he is trying to accomplish in the book:

And here are a couple of the blurbs:

“Piper has done it again. His outstanding book Think promises to shepherd a generation about the Christian commitment to the life of the mind. Deeply biblical and uniquely balanced, Think practices what it preaches: It is an accessible, intellectually rich study that calls the reader to renewed love for God and others.”

--J. P. Moreland, Distinguished Professor of Philosophy, Talbot School of Theology

“John Piper has written a wise and passionate book about the importance of loving God with our minds. After all, we are commanded to do so! But as Piper explains, Christians have not always been very attentive to that commandment. With clarity and directness, he reveals the obstacles that prevent us from using our minds as God intended--but also shows the delights and benefits of doing so. Especially for those who fear intellectualism, this book will be a bracing tonic, and an encouragement besides.”

--Alan Jacobs, Clyde S. Kilby Chair Professor of English, Wheaton College

    Will Crossway provide a pdf version of the book with hard-copy purchase? it doesn’t seem like they’re giving that option.
