Publisher's Summary

Dallas Willard, one of today's most brilliant Christian thinkers and the author of The Divine Conspiracy (Christianity Today's 1999 Book of the Year), presents a way of living that enables ordinary men and women to enjoy the fruit of the Christian life.

He reveals how the key to self-transformation resides in the practice of the spiritual disciplines, and how their practice affirms human life to the fullest. The Spirit of the Disciplines is for everyone who strives to be a disciple of Jesus in thought and action as well as intention.

Fantastic, Dallas Willard brings great clarity

A brilliant exposition on a lost practice within mainstream Christianity. Dallas Willard has brought clarity to a sometimes mysterious topic and brings it to a practical level in day to day life.

Making Faith Real

This is an empowering interpretation on how to translate your faith into real and concrete practices; disciplines that we can all practice in order to become more Christ-like in our daily thoughts and actions.

Every one needs this book.

I think the discplines that Dallas teaches here are missing in the American church and that is why we are lacking in power. This is a great book.

Dallas Willard is simple a wonderful, insightful mentor.

Willard's ability to summarize major ethical issues is superb. The challenge is in taking his admonition to heart and systematically implementing them.

actualization with a Christian veneer

I did not finish listening to the book. I did listen for a while hoping it would get better, and in the end, I decided I could spend my time in better ways. in the history of Christianity, the greatest gift we have received is God himself, his empowering presence through his Spirit, thanks to Jesus' blood sacrifice making us able to house this Holiness. Yet this book is centered on man and the position we're given. Very little communication about the one empowering. I was reminded of the self actualization in Christian form. More needs to be said on walking in the Presence.

Ted Waring Port Elizabeth

Narration clear and detail balanced yet engaging, encouraging us to become followers of Christ fulfilling the great commisson by including the great ommission - our bodily disciplines - allowing us by His grace to walk by the Spirit in obedience. The audio version has helped me to repeat important parts so that I could understand more easily.
