The 2013 Winner


   
Jesus Christ and the Life of the Mind

By Mark A. Noll
Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing Co., 2011
ISBN-13:  9780802866370

In Jesus Christ and the Life of the Mind, Mark A. Noll draws on the resources of Christian thought not only to defend but to promote the pursuit of truth and beauty in the liberal arts. Building on and extending his arguments in The Scandal of the Evangelical Mind, Noll demonstrates that thoughtful understandings of Christology and the Atonement not only justify passionate and precise academic work but offer specific guidance in the way scholars and teachers approach their subjects. Jesus Christ and the Life of the Mind—a book for scholarly and general audiences—is required reading for people of faith who are interested in the purposes of education and the vocation of the teacher/scholar.
