—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

    I would like to see the print version of this book. By the way, Dr Willard died in 2013. Your "About Dallas Willard" written above indicates that he is still alive.
