Publisher's Summary

From Dallas Willard, one of the most important Christian intellectuals of the 20th century, comes a collection of readings, interviews, talks, and articles, many previously unpublished.

In his groundbreaking books The Divine Conspiracy, The Great Omission, Knowing Christ Today, Hearing God, The Spirit of the Disciplines, The Divine Conspiracy Continued, and The Allure of Gentleness, teacher, philosopher, and spiritual guide Dallas Willard forever changed the way many Christians experience their faith. Three years after his death, the influence of this provocative Christian thinker - "a man devoted to reestablishing the exalted place moral reasoning once held in the academy" (Christianity Today) - remains strong.

Compiled, edited, and introduced by his friend and fellow theologian, Gary Black, Jr., Renewing the Christian Mind is a collection of essays, interviews, and articles that brilliantly encapsulate Willard's spiritual philosophy and his contributions to theology.

Renewing the Christian Mind offers insight into spiritual formation, avocation, and theology and includes sections directed at specific audiences, from church leaders to laypeople looking for spiritual counsel and nurture. Reasoned, honest, thought-provoking, and illuminating, this important anthology is an invaluable introduction and companion to Dallas Willard's acclaimed body of work.

Opportunity to go deeper with Dallas Willard

This book is a great opportunity to go deeper in your understanding of the rich and fruitful thought of the great thinker and Christian, Dallas Willard. I have been incredibly blessed by reading several of his books and am now in the process of trying to read or listen to everything that he has written.

Read with a notebook ready

This is not a book! It's an in-depth study of significant importance. It will explode your faith. For we who have mourned the loss of Dallas Willard's presence and his teachings, it's almost as if he came back...and brought the love of Christ with him. School is in session once again. With us as Christ's disciples, our Bibles, and this as our textbook, there is now a wonderful opportunity to be and make many more disciples! Thank you Gary… And thank you Lord for lending Dallas to us in these difficult times!

Essential Messages For Christians and the church

Life changing insight and direction from a wonderful man of God. I wish I had an opportunity to spend a day or ten learning from him.
The recording performance was good with some flaws. There were very pregnant pauses throughout, but far more annoying was a background ticking or smacking of lips; I couldn’t discern. However, please don’t allow this to prevent you obtaining the immense blessings of the book.

Great book!

This is a book I can listen to over and over and never learn it all. Very simple, but challenging. I have enjoyed all the author's books that I have read thus far.
