About the Author

Dallas Willard (1935-2013) was a professor in the School of Philosophy at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles for over forty years. A highly influential author and teacher, Willard was as celebrated for his enduring writings on spiritual formation as he was for his scholarship. His books include The Divine Conspiracy (Christianity Today?s Book of the Year in 1998), The Spirit of the Disciplines, Hearing God, Renovation of the Heart and others. His books have received numerous Christianity Today Annual Book Awards and other recognitions. Willard served on the boards of the C. S. Lewis Foundation and Biola University, and was a member of numerous evaluation committees for the Western Association of Schools and Colleges. He received bachelor's degrees from both Tennessee Temple College and Baylor University and a graduate degree at Baylor University, as well as a PhD from the University of Wisconsin in Philosophy and the History of Science.

Reviews

"Willard is a master at capturing the central insight of Jesus' teachings. . . . Rarely have I found an author with so penetrating an intellect combined with so generous a spirit."--from the Foreword by Richard Foster, author of Celebration of Discipline
"This book belongs in the tradition of the great devotional classics . . . The comprehensiveness of his study, its accessibility, its fervor, its freshness of phrasing, and its command of Scripture should prompt Christians to give this book serious attention."--Christian Century
"With The Divine Conspiracy, Willard joins the line of a Kempis, Luther, Fenelon, Brother Lawrence, Zinzendorf, Wesley, and other master apprentices of Jesus . . . What distinguishes The Divine Conspiracy is an extraordinary combination of simplicity and depth . . . If you read only one book, make it this one."--Christianity Today
"I consider The Divine Conspiracy to be the most important book in the field of Christian spirituality written in my lifetime."--Richard J. Foster, author of Celebration of Discipline
"All of Dallas Willard's books merit careful attention, but this goes to the heart of the matter. To be a disciple is to be a disciple of Jesus, living in his presence to learn from and become like him. Just as the disciples did in the Gospels."--Christianity Magazine
"A Christian classic that deserves to be mentioned in the same breath with Augustine's Confessions and Brother Lawrence's Practicing the Presence of God."--JP Moreland, author of Love Your God with All Your Mind
"Passionate insights . . . thoroughly argued."--Library Journal
"The Divine Conspiracy shaped an entire generation."--Scot McKnight, author of The Blue Parakeet
