About-

Evangelical Christianity in the United States is currently in a dramatic state of change. Yet amidst this sometimes tumultuous religious environment a rather unique blend of both ancient and contemporary Christian theology has found its way into the hearts and minds of emerging generations of Christians. The Theology of Dallas Willard both describes and conveys the essence of this increasingly popular and perhaps mediating view of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Blending both a prophetic critique with pastoral encouragement, Willard's unique understanding of the reality present within a life lived as a disciple of Jesus in the kingdom of God is attracting both new and traditional Christians to reconsider their faith.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"Dallas Willard has impacted countless numbers of us looking for a fresh perspective on the dynamic, surprising, compelling life Jesus invites us into. And Gary has been on the leading edge of helping explain this new movement that's brewing. . . . People from a broad range of perspectives will find Gary's clear, informed, nuanced, and hopeful voice a welcome guide as we navigate the shifting landscape we're living in."
--Rob Bell, author of Love Wins

"There is simply no one whose understanding of Jesus and his good news has the power and depth of Dallas Willard. Gary Black offers us all a tremendous gift--a journey of thought that will illuminate your faith and change your life."
--John Ortberg, author of Who Is This Man?

"No one has had a greater impact on my understanding of spiritual formation and life in God's kingdom than Dallas Willard, and I know of no one who has a more thorough grasp of Willard's teachings than Gary Black. . . . The hopeful vision of life in God's realm expertly summarized in this book has the potential to revolutionize the church and our world--if only we summon the courage to make it our way of practice."
--Mark Scandrette, author of Practicing the Way of Jesus

"Gary Black writes a comprehensive and penetrating survey of the thought and context of one of American evangelicalism's most influential reformers. The resulting analysis--The Theology of Dallas Willard--is worth studying and then studying some more, because Dallas Willard is that important to the future of the church in North America."
--David Fitch, author of Prodigal Christianity

"Black has given us a window into Willard's thoughts, showing his deep and systematic approach to living life as a disciple of Jesus. This is an excellent read for understanding the depth and beauty of a contemporary theological giant. I highly recommend it!"
--Keith J. Matthews, coeditor of Dictionary of Everyday Theology and Culture

"The present volume is a masterful and accessible presentation of Willardian theology, which is, at its heart, an invitation to step into a real, present, holistic, experiential, and incarnational form of Christian faith. This is an important book."
--Gary W. Moon, author of Apprenticeship with Jesus

"Quite possibly some of the theologically richest, deepest, and most well-formed thoughts for God's church are in these pages. Excavating below leadership tactics and spiritual formation approaches lays this breathtaking vision of God. Read slowly, savor, and ponder. Let it simultaneously affect your heart and your mind. It is a distant light leading us home."
--Nancy Ortberg, author of Unleashing the Power of Rubber Bands
