Publisher's Summary

The revered Christian author whose best-selling classics include The Divine Conspiracy and The Spirit of the Disciplines provides a new model for how we can present the Christian faith to others.
When Christians share their faith, they often appeal to reason, logic, and the truth of doctrine. But these tactics often are not effective. A better approach to spread Christ's word, Dallas Willard suggests, is to use the example of our own lives. To demonstrate Jesus's message, we must be transformed people living out a life reflective of Jesus himself, a life of love, humility, and gentleness.
This beautiful model of life - this allure of gentleness - Willard argues, is the foundation for making the most compelling argument for Christianity, one that will convince others that there is something special about Christianity and the Jesus we follow.

Another Fantastic Dallas Willard Bbok

Dallas a Willard takes our fear out of Christian apologetics and simplifies it, yet not making apologetics simplistic. He keeps the meat, the breadth and depth, yet makes it understandable.

This is a must read/listen for understanding the Christian life as Jesus intends.
