Do you feel overwhelmed? Discontented? Weary? These are symptoms of a distracted mind—a mind fixed on passing earthly things.
Guided by the rich wisdom of Puritan theologian John Owen, Kris Lundgaard presents a countermeasure to our distraction: the devoted mind. By seeking those things above, where Christ is, we can have hope in all circumstances, know contentment in any situation, and enjoy deep communion with God that makes life worth living.
Deep, meditative, and compelling, The Devoted Mind invites us to draw nearer to Christ as he draws near to us. Its eleven brief but profound chapters each conclude with exercises to guide the mind-work and heart-work you need to grow. Let us devote our minds to contemplating God and find our worship renewed.
“Here is a book to be savored slowly. This is one of my most joyful devotional reads of recent years. If you want to grow in delight in Jesus and the knowledge of God, I warmly recommend it.” —Christopher Ash, Writer-in-Residence, Tyndale House, Cambridge
“Kris Lundgaard has once again offered a great treasure to the church. . . . In eleven brief meditations, The Devoted Mind directs us to the Reformed piety we so need just now, challenging our misdirected loves and redirecting our souls to the beauty of Christ.” —David Cassidy, Senior Pastor, Spanish River Church, Boca Raton, Florida
“Kris Lundgaard helps us to recover the witness of John Owen regarding the grace and duty of spiritual-mindedness so that we might, once again, glean the promise and responsibility of fearing God alone.” —Michael Allen, Professor of Systematic Theology, Academic Dean, Reformed Theological Seminary, Orlando
