balancing the mind and heart for renewal

In his book on prayer, Tim Keller argues well for what I would call a biblically informed theology while seeking (again my words) a deep experience with God. 

I’ve said it before, this book is the most important book on prayer, and therefore growing spiritually, in a long time, maybe ever. It is worth your time.

Recently, a couple of us have gotten to chapter 11 in which he states:

“Owen promotes what could be called a radically biblical mysticism. It comes through meditation on Scripture, on theological truth, on the gospel—but it must break through to real experience of God.”

This is a great description, I think, of what Paul urged when he told to “renew our minds” in Romans 12.
