I cannot recommend it highly enough.
~~ ~~ ~~ ~~ ~~ ~~ ~~ ~~ ~~ ~~ ~~ ~~ ~~ ~~ ~~ ~~ ~~ ~~
Now, just a few comments on the previous review that rightly pointed out that many of the articles in the book were previously available on Willard's website, but are no longer available with the publishing of the book: it is indeed sad, however, it might have been a necessary trade off when negotiating with the publisher. If the aims of a publisher is secular, to maximize sales of one's book, the publisher might require as a condition of publishing the book that such online articles be removed, even if the Willard family wanted to do otherwise.
This does not negate the point made by the previous reviewer, but I think that more people will now be exposed to the writings of Dallas Willard through this collection of articles and interviews than if the project was cancelled because the publisher was concerned about reduced sales. This is speculation on my part as to why the articles were removed, but I at least see one great benefit: the fact that these articles are now available in electronic and audio form due to the creation of this book. Also, it is important to note that there are still over 50 articles about Dallas Willard's website about Christianity, so those that are unable to afford such a collection can feast on the insights of Dallas Willard there. Furthermore, the book is not merely a collection of articles taken from the website as it contains interviews which were previously not available in text form and also articles which were unpublished to date.
Interestingly, I actually think that this book is a better value than the last collection, The Great Omission (even this collection has previously published articles from Christianity Today,etc.), considering how much more articles this book has. Lastly, it is important for potential customers to take into context the point of the other reviewer: "The person who has been reading Willard over the years will find very little that is new here, both in terms of content and in terms of previously unavailable material." In other words, if you are new to Dallas Willard's teaching then this book is a home run or if you only have read some of his works, it is still a home run; but if you own all his books, hunted down everything he has wrote, then your value proposition will be lower since you would have seen some of the material already. But then again, even though I own all of Willard books (and the matching audio books) and still have found tremendous value in having this collection; as I find great value in the new formats that the material is now in, (audio and eBook) and because even when I read articles from Willard that I have read before, I continue to learn something new. So in short, I think this collection is more than worth the price and you will find great value in it as well.

Some of the chapters are repeats in terms of content of subjects covered in Dallas Willard's other books but there are still many chapters that extended my understanding and one that provides a great summary of his overall view of salvation and Christian development.
