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.

This is a Spiritual Classic

Dallas Willard addresses our longing to Abide in Christ. He gently clears away mistaken assumptions and self-justification to reveal the truly Biblical way of discipleship. Your heart will be filled with desire to follow Christ into deeper union with Him in every day life by being a doer of the Word. This book along with Celebration of the Disciplines are musts for every Christian. May God work in us to will and to do His good pleasure.

Drivel

This is one of the few audiobooks I stopped listening to. I just couldn't handle it. Very little scriptural support for what seemed to be an endless flow religious phrases. I love Jesus, and I love learning about God, and how to better follow Him. However, this book had almost no support, or point. Or it just took to long to get there.

Challenging and direct

I loved how this was laid out. What is a disciple. How can I as a follower of Christ mature in my walk with Jesus. What are some steps to spiritual maturity. All of these questions Dallas Willard lays out in this book. If you want to know what the “cost of discipleship” means, then read or listen to this book.
