Eternal LivingEternal Living:
Reflections on Dallas Willard's Teaching on Faith and Formation


Dallas Willard spent his life making eternal living concrete for his friends. His example as a follower of Christ inspired friends, family, colleagues, students, and leaders of the church to gather their reflections in a collection that allows us to see his impact as friend, philosopher and reformer of the church.

Curated by Willard's long-time colleague and friend Gary Moon, who has also contributed a brief introductory biography to the book, this medley of images, snapshots and "Dallas-isms" seeks to move and motivate readers toward deeper experiences of God through the sharing of stories from the lives of the writers. Whether influenced by him as a family member, close friend, advisor, professor, philosopher, minister or reformer, contributors bring refreshing insight into not only his ideas and what shaped him, but also to his contagious theology of grace and joy.

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. [MORE]

Fulfilling God's Kingdom on Earth
