It is often assumed that faith is more important to theology than reason. This assumption may seem to be supported by the frequency of the word faith in English translations of the Bible and the relative infrequency of the word reason. However, what we usually mean by the “reason” is very frequently mentioned in the Bible in other words such as the word mind. In this paper I present a study of the Apostle Paul’s use of the term “mind of Christ” to describe Christian rationality. This clarifies the relations of faith and reason in the Christian mind. I will also present some implications for a Christian perspective on the relations of science and theology.
