Dallas Willard, one of today’s most brilliant Christian thinkers and author of The Divine Conspiracy (Christianity Today’s 1999 Book of the Year), presents a way of living that enables ordinary men and women to enjoy the fruit of the Christian life. He reveals how the key to self-transformation resides in the practice of the spiritual disciplines, and how their practice affirms human life to the fullest. The Spirit of the Disciplines is for everyone who strives to be a disciple of Jesus in thought and action as well as intention.
A strong call to biblical obedience and discipline, this book presents a fresh look at the eternal—and contemporary—relevance of the Scriptures.
—Ted W. Engstrom, president emeritus, World Vision
A profound call to discipleship based on spiritual disciplines [that] awakens us to a forgotten truth, that the transformation to Christ-likeness is realized through taking on the ‘easy yoke’ of the disciplines.
—Sue Monk Kidd, author, The Dance of the Dissident Daughter
