Publisher's Summary

We aren't born again to stay the way we are. But how many times have we looked around us in dismay at the lack of spiritual maturity in fellow believers?

It is evident in the rising rate of divorces among Christian couples. We find it in the high percentages of Christians, even pastors, who regularly view pornography. And we face it each time a well-known leader in the Christian community is found in sexual sin or handling finances dishonestly. Perhaps you have struggled with your own character issues for years, even decades, to little avail. That's good news. You can experience significant growth in your Christian walk, shed sinful habits, and increasing take on the character of Christ.

In Renovation of the Heart, best-selling author Dallas Willard calls it "the transformation of the spirit"- a divine process that "brings every element in our being, working from inside out, into harmony with the will of God or the kingdom of God." In the transformation of our spirits, we become apprentices of Jesus Christ.

    "Heart-Changing"

    Dense material that was well-worth the listen. I have a friend that is reading the book, and the Audible format was comparitively easy to understand. Dallas Willard is a deep thinker, and has reasoned through his presentation with conviction and straightforward talk with no apologies.

    "Content -'A', Delivery -'D'...A Pity"

    I am a fan of Dallas Willard and have read or listened to most of what he has written. That's why this book was so disappointing. His content, as usual, was erudite and enriching, but I could hardly finish the book. I had to fight continually to concentrate on the content since, my brain was continually wandering from lack of auditory stimulation. Willard chose to narrate this book himself...a bad choice. His voice is slow, dull and completely lacking in vocal dynamics which are so important in keeping a listener's attention. Just because you can make good sense out of the text, does not mean you can engage a listener's ear and hold it. To achieve that is an art which too many authors of audio books refuse to recognize. I will never buy another of his books if he is the narrator.

    "This book is a rich feast for the soul!"
    Where does Renovation of the Heart rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This book is absolutely stellar. Being able to listen to Dallas read you his own wise thoughts on the renovated life, is like having Dallas personally coach you. I have found it an absolutely refreshing way to absorb his awesome material.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Renovation of the Heart?

    The chapter on the role of feeling was particularly profound.


    Have you listened to any of Dallas Willard’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is my first one, but I absolutely guarantee it won't be my last!!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No, it made me want the kind of inner life that is described.


    Any additional comments?

    I love Audible.com!!

    "Dallas Willard by Dallas Willard 100%"
    Would you listen to Renovation of the Heart again? Why?

    Yes. I have listened to it several times now - more than six at least. And 'Yes' my first impression is changed. Once I got into the 'Heart' of Renovation of the Heart, it's hard to walk away from a heart worth renovating.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The one who gave this book a single start and then got sold out on it with not enough stars to give it.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    where the reader thinks this book is not for them only to find that the end up with not just the book, the 'daily practice', the audio (synchronised on all media devices), AND the ten audio CD disk set for the car - wait there is more - the head phones also ! Thank you Dallas Willard - for both - the book and the audio.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It's packed with renovation in every nook and cranny - any one looking for spit and polish? expect to get more out of this deep and meaningful 'experiment in spiritual transformation'.


    Any additional comments?

    I apologise for my first feedback - it was untaught. I know better now. Thank you Dallas Willard.

    Please continue to produce audio versions of ALL your books. (I have a few and I keep coming back to this one)
