A Powerful Biography of an Important Christian Thinker - It Will Move You
Reviewed in the United States on April 13, 2018
I just finished reading Gary Moon's new biography of Dallas Willard, 'Becoming Dallas Willard' and all I can say is "Wow." I own almost all of Willard's Christian books but I've only read 'The Spirit of the Disciplines.' I've had every intention of reading 'The Divine Conspiracy' and 'The Great Omission' but have just never found the time. I'm going to find the time now. Dallas Willard was a philosopher who swam against the stream. He believed, taught, and argued that there is a reality beyond the one we see. The Kingdom of God truly is here. God is literally "at my right hand" (Psalm 16:8). The Christian world claims to believe these things, but do we really? And how does it affect our daily living? These are the questions that Dallas wrestled with - and attempted to live - throughout his life. From his early childhood in Missouri to his years teaching philosophy at USC, Dallas Willard's life is an inspiration. It will challenge you. It will encourage you. And it just might leave you with a tear or two.
