How does anyone 'put on the mind of Christ', as Scripture commands? Can people really get so close to Christ that they not only know his mind but also take on his thinking? And what does this mean for Christian discipleship, the Church, the ordinary person of faith? David Scott, writer and poet, has reflected on this central theme of Christianity over a lifetime's ministry in the Anglican church. He writes with engaging honesty about his personal thoughts and yet brings a theological rigour to his analysis. He combines a down-to-earth practicality with profound engagement with the texts of Scripture. The result is a gem of a book. He writes as follows in his introduction. 'Put on the mind of Christ: what that phrase, with its concentration on 'mind', does not immediately evoke is the way in which the rattle-bag of feelings about things, the heartaches, the heart searchings, the lifting up of the heart have coalesced and been informed by the sharper, tougher attitudes of mind. We shall see, in the case of Jesus, that those two concepts heart and mind, become one orientation, attitude, and spring for action. They also provide one unmoveable pointer for us to a destination we trust in, as we set out to know Christ, and be known by him, and so to enter into a creative relationship with the very centre of our faith.'

MEDIA REVIEWS
'This is not written for group work, and that, in itself, is a welcome difference....It is a book richly peopled with those who show us the mind of Christ, and it makes a valuable contribution to this year's list.' Martin Warner, Church Times, February 2007--Sanford Lakoff "Church Times "
"The book manages to balance a thirst for academic knowledge about God with a more affective yearning, asking searching questions about the interaction of these impulses."--Sanford Lakoff
"David Scott's The Mind of Christ is the Mowbray Lent Book for 2007. In the plethora of Lent books which are published these days only a few seem to last beyond their season. This should definately be one of them. David Scott writes in a way that you feel him alongside you, gently sharing his own experience and what must have been a lifetime's reflection upon such questions."--Sanford Lakoff "The Merton Annual "
