  • Head, Heart & Hands: Bringing Together Christian Thought, Passion and Action Dennis P. Hollinger As Christians, we are to love God with all of our being heart, mind, soul and strength But many of us tend to overemphasize one aspect or another, and as a result, our faith becomes imbalanced Some of us have an intellectual faith but lack compassion or spiritual discipline Others of us have a vibrant, heartfelt relationship with God but lack commitment to truth or docAs Christians, we are to love God with all of our being heart, mind, soul and strength But many of us tend to overemphasize one aspect or another, and as a result, our faith becomes imbalanced Some of us have an intellectual faith but lack compassion or spiritual discipline Others of us have a vibrant, heartfelt relationship with God but lack commitment to truth or doctrine And many of us overlook translating our faith into service and ministry In this book ethicist Dennis P Hollinger presents a holistic, integrative vision for reuniting Christian thought, passion and action He shows how individuals, churches and movements throughout history have focused on either the head, or the heart or the hands often to the exclusion of other expressions But by linking our intellect, emotions and actions, Hollinger points us toward a whole faith for the whole person, where each dimension feeds, nurtures and sustains the others.

    One thought on “Head, Heart & Hands: Bringing Together Christian Thought, Passion and Action”

    1. This is an appeal for the integrated Christian life Hollinger contends that we often separate head intellect , heart passions, spiritual attentiveness and hands practical action Individuals, churches and theological traditions tend to lean toward one of these Hollinger explores both what each contribute to mature Christian discipleship and what results when one is in excess or deficient in our lives I found most helpful the latter chapters where he looks at what the three look like together in o [...]

    2. Love the basic thesis of this book, that I ve been wrestling with so much in the past year that I was getting a bit bored by the end of the book Hollinger argues for an integrated and holistic christian lifes and gives two chapters to each head, heart, and hands One chapter deals with the dimensions of that aspect of faith conversion and one chapter deals with distortions Including real examples, examples from the history of the church, and scripture the biblical basis chapter gave me a headache [...]

    3. The basic idea of the book is very important I don t think the author delves into the idea as far as he should, however hence, the three stars.The idea one should have his or her mind, heart, and body fully integrated in one s faith and life God designed us to use head, heart, and hands If any of these three areas is neglected, it affects the other two The book would have been better if Hollinger had told head types how better to develop the heart and hands The same type of advice could have bee [...]

    4. A Christians we all have a part of our faith that we stress that the others Some are bent toward the practicle hands on caring part of the faith, some toward the deep knowledge needed to defend the faith, and some toward the heart felt inspriation of the faith But the extremes of any of these can cause pain and trouble Hollinger does a great job of explianing the issues and offereing solutions.

    5. This is an excellent book, unique in some ways in addressing the problems of an incomplete faith I enjoyed it and was challenged by much in this text.
