God calls us to love and worship him with our whole beings: heart, soul, strength and mind. If that is true, then learning to think theologically is not an optional discipline, but essential to the healthy formation of every Christian believer. Fostering a Gospel-shaped imagination means being embedded in the overall storyline of the Bible so we can learn how to apply the narrative of God’s redemption to our everyday life and mission as Christians.
