"Most Christians would rather die than think—in fact they do."
—Bertrand Russel

Anti-intellectualism has become the scandal of evangelicalism. Over the course of two hundred years, it has gradually become part and parcel of our evangelical identity. Yet today the failure to love God with our minds as well as our hearts is not only a sin—it's a crippling cultural handicap in an age when ideas have greater consequences than ever.

Os Guinness traces the retreat of the evangelical mind and the dumbing down of evangelicalism through popular culture. But this book goes beyond mere analysis. It is a strong call for reformation of yet another place where evangelicalism is not evangelical enough.
