Richard Hays on Christian Imagination

Worth a ponder:

"In order to form a Christian community identity within a pluralistic pagan world, Paul repeatedly calls his readers to a 'conversion of the imagination.' He invites them to see the world in dramatically new ways, in light of values shaped by the Christian story."
