"The Mind of Christ: The Transforming Power of Thinking His Thoughts" by T.W. Hunt served to be an insightful and exhilarating read for those searching to have "the mind of christ." In my opinion, having "the mind of christ" is having the ability to think like Jesus thought, or according to exercises that T.W. Hunt has you work on throughout the book, it's the ability of directing your thoughts to be as close to the thoughts of Jesus Himself.
Dr. Hunt begins with several exercises for the reader

To present the mind of Christ in 170 pages is just ludicrous. So I would expect the book took an approach of how to study and be conformed to the mind of Jesus. Instead, the book listed many qualities of Christ (first section) and then life of Christ,including Crucifixion and resurrection, which was more of describing what happened rather than the mind... It was a bit disappointment to read that, because the book did not present any deeper insight. The book is accurate in what it writes and supp ...more

Paul tells us in 1 Corinthians 2 that we "have the mind of Christ." Yet for me and many others that I journey with, this seems an empty statement. T. W. Hunt writes an amazing book describing what this means, how it can change our lives, and what we need to do to more fully experience the "mind of Christ" within our day-to-day lives. Highly recommend this book. It is an outstanding read, maybe not entertaining, but challenging and outstanding.

Hunt was on staff with Billy Graham, which is an indirect credential as to his qualifications to write this book. Mind of Christ is very challenging in that it is easy to understand and actually easy to implement, but at the cost of this age. To have the active mind of Christ, Hunt argues that we must develop a greater obsession of knowing Jesus. By the power of the Holy Spirit our mind (outlook) is changed to reflect that of Jesus, holy, a servant to all, even sinners, a comforter, submissive t ...more

What an inspirational read. The author has clearly defined what "the mind of Christ" is that believers receive upon salvation, and then goes through a well-organized presentation of what it means to grow in this aspect of becoming Christ-like. It is not a book about spiritual disciplines like study, fasting, prayer, meditation and the like. It is rather a beautiful portrait of Jesus Christ Himself. As the author takes us through several different ways to think like Christ, one can't help but to ...more

A friend describe T. W. Hunt as a saint. This is a book about the transformation of the mind as one commits oneself daily to the Christ. I have heard of Dr. Hunts conference on prayer and I am sorry that I never got to attend a conference. I do want to read his books on prayer. This is a book I will reread several times.

The book was a close reading of New Testament texts that took a look at what kind of person Jesus was on earth. Certainly he was divine but while he lived as a mortal, he presented himself as a man. What does that mean for me? How can I be like he was? The book was very good perspective on how I can surrender my will to him and replace my mind with his mind, my heart with his heart.

Our biggest challenge and the seat of change in our lives is the renewing of our mind. Seeing people, the world, understanding and thinking more like Christ.

Challenging study. At times overwhelming but ultimately led to my complete surrender to follow Christ on this amazing journey.

An intellictual read that borders on stuffy at times. Contains a great retelling of the crucifixion and a really nice overview of the names of God.
