Publisher's Summary

The revered Christian author whose best-selling classics include The Divine Conspiracy and The Spirit of the Disciplines provides a new model for how we can present the Christian faith to others.

When Christians share their faith, they often appeal to reason, logic, and the truth of doctrine. But these tactics often are not effective. A better approach to spread Christ's word, Dallas Willard suggests, is to use the example of our own lives. To demonstrate Jesus's message, we must be transformed people living out a life reflective of Jesus himself, a life of love, humility, and gentleness.

This beautiful model of life - this allure of gentleness - Willard argues, is the foundation for making the most compelling argument for Christianity, one that will convince others that there is something special about Christianity and the Jesus we follow.

Excellent, wise teaching

Willard deals with the hard questions, and he teaches us how to adopt the life of Christ so that it is attractive and it makes sense. He shows a way to live that is so clearly grounded in the realities of the kingdom of God, that the people of the kingdom to not have to holler and be angry and defensive in talking about their lives. Their lives work, and so their words can be gentle.

Another Fantastic Dallas Willard Bbok

Dallas a Willard takes our fear out of Christian apologetics and simplifies it, yet not making apologetics simplistic. He keeps the meat, the breadth and depth, yet makes it understandable.

This is a must read/listen for understanding the Christian life as Jesus intends.

Profound as usual from Willard

Willard is always gracious in insight about life and spirit of Jesus and how that relates to us and how we are called to be His disciples.
