Being able to think and reason is part of what makes us human. However clever we may or may not be, our minds matter. The Bible helps us to understand our minds more fully. It shows us that when people become Christians, their minds are made new. This mini-guide to the Christian Mind explores the far-reaching implications of having a renewed mind.
Each title in this Banner Mini-Guides series will provide an outline of the Bible’s teaching on a particular subject. They will open up a key verse or portion of Scripture for study, while not neglecting other passages related to the theme under consideration, The goal is to whet your appetite and to encourage you to explore the subject in more detail: hence the suggestions for further reading which appear after the final chapter. However, the mini-guide will provide enough information to enlarge your understanding of the theme.
The mini guides are close to 100 pages in length, and retail for $8.00 Their affordable price and accessible length will enable them to be used in a wide variety of churches and with Christians with a wide variety of reading ability. It is our hope that both a fledgling believer and a seasoned saint could profit from these volumes.
All the mini guides have been arranged in a thirteen-chapter format so that they will seamlessly fit into the teaching quarters of the church year, and be useful for Sunday school lessons or Bible class studies.
